Smashburger, one of a handful of burger chains that have been steadily popping up all over the island is set to open up its newest island location in New Hyde Park, on Friday, October 18, 2013.
Krisch’s Restaurant and Ice Cream Parlor in Massapequa is not only a wildly popular restaurant on Long Island, but it is one that is steeped in history; one of the last remaining old-school ice cream shops around.
JW’s Public House, a relative newcomer to Long Island’s north shore, in Glen Head, is crafting something special in their corner of the world (or at least their corner on Glen Head Road). Offering a restaurant / bar atmosphere with a menu focused on providing some of the freshest seafood available, there are plenty of options here for diners to revel in.
Back in Patchogue’s heyday, Patchogue was known as the Queen City. It was a popular destination for shops, restaurants and hotels alike. Keeping that moniker alive today is Queen City Cupcakes, pulling double duty as a store for home-wares and a bakery with exquisite desserts. We stopped inside to snap some photos to let our readers see some of their wonderful wares and sweet offerings.
If you told us we could have 24 hours of guilt-free sugar indulgences and we could visit anywhere on the island to splurge, we may just have to take all of those hours and devote them to eating through Buttercooky Bakery’s entire inventory of breads, cakes, pies and cupcakes.
Being that it’s the summertime, we’ve covered a lot of dessert spots, and more specifically, frozen yogurt spots. Swirlz World is new to the area, having just opened their doors within the past six weeks. This is a self-serve yogurt hotspot and one thing that they have that most others don’t is a huge selection of pick-your-own candy.
We’ve met Roe’s Casa Dolce’s original location in Rockville Centre when they were recently featured on our favorite TV show on FiOS1 LI, “Restaurant Hunter” (link here), but now they’re expanding their reach on the south shore with their new location in Merrick.
The Little Sugar Shop in Valley Stream is just that; a tiny little shop hidden away on East Valley Stream Blvd. pumping out wonderful cupcakes, brownies and other sweet treats.
