Quick In & Out: Noah’s in Greenport

When we first met Chef Noah Schwartz he was at the helm of Seafood Barge in Southold way back in 2007(ish). Not too long after our first meeting at that location, they closed up shop and Noah decided to head out on his own. A few miles away in Greenport, the old Frisky Oyster bar location was opening up, so due to the collision of events, Noah decided to open up Noah’s in the heart of Greenport, on Front Street.

Amazing Breakfast on Long Island: Relish in Kings Park

When Relish opened roughly two years ago in Kings Park, on Suffolk County’s north shore, owner / chef Stephen Cardello (formerly the chef at Grey Horse Tavern in Bayport) probably couldn’t have imagined its success and popularity with local foodies. Their weekend breakfast has been creating plenty of buzz in local circles and helping their cause is their location; on the corner of Main Street and also close to many of their suppliers. This has led to creative, fresh and seasonal fare.

PLANCHA Tapas and Wine Bar in Garden City

When we saw that PLANCHA, a new Tapas and Wine Bar was opening up in Garden City, our intuition told us that Josh, Jonathan and Lily, the trio behind one of our favorite spots on the South Shore, Salumi, in Massapequa, were behind this new spot. Our suspicions were confirmed and with that knowledge in our hands, we knew that diners were in for something special on the North Shore.

Sunday Brunch of the Week on Long Island: Grillfire in Merrick

Although Grillfire in Merrick may be known most for their excellent hamburgers (their own special blend, mixed for them by Main Street Meats), they also have a great Sunday brunch experience. Over the years we have frequented this popular spot, conveniently located on Sunrise Highway, to wind down the weekend and usher in the day of rest.

Brownstones Coffee in Amityville

Brownstones Coffee in Amityville

Every town on Long Island should have a coffee spot / cafe like Brownstones. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a cup of expertly made coffee (or tea) and to indulge in some tasty breakfast foods as well. It’s a smaller cafe, so if you’re planning on staying for food on the weekends, be prepared for a short wait while the tables turn over; but it’s oh-so-worth-it.

Maureen’s Kitchen in Smithtown

Maureen’s Kitchen in Smithtown

Whether you view Maureen’s Kitchen as a gimmicky / eccentric morning spot or one of your favorite restaurants around, one thing is for sure; they’re not going anywhere, any time soon. We note the eccentricity as a result of the hundres of cows inside and outside of the restaurant. You can’t miss them from the road, sitting there besides the sign. Once you step inside, black and white spots are everywhere and you may leave feeling like a dairy farmer who is escaping from the dairy.
