When one gets invited to North Fork Table and Inn in Southold, on Long Island’s North Fork, one drops everything and makes a beeline for the restaurant (and brings a camera with them to catalogue the trip). Such was the case on a recent chilly Sunday afternoon. True to fashion, North Fork Table and Inn lived up to the hype and showed us why they have been one of the top restaurants on Long Island (28 out of 30 for food in ZAGAT) on a consistent basis.
Award winning, romantic, adventurous and revered are all ways that we can describe Restaurant Mirabelle, located inside the Three Village Inn in Stony Brook. Chef Guy Reuge has been the driving force behind Restaurant Mirabelle over the past years and this French cuisine juggernaut is always a formidable contender for Long Island’s best restaurant. We stopped by the restaurant for a quick photo shoot to capture what so many love.
Luce + Hawkins is one of those rare restaurants. A historic location, a renowned chef and award-winning cuisine are all converging at this very spot on the north fork of Long Island and if you haven’t taken the trip yet, we don’t know what you are waiting for.
Years ago, a Best Western sat off of exit 72 of the LIE, just next to Tanger Outlets. It wasn’t anything much to look at. It did its job; catering to those looking for a quick getaway to the entryway of the north fork, or a respite between shopping marathons. With time, the tide has changed and the new owners have not only Manhattan-ized the hotel (read: trendy), they’ve also installed Bistro 72, serving up fantastic drinks and cuisine.
We’ve had people whispering in our ear for a while to check out Mirabelle Tavern, a casual eatery inside of the Three Village Inn in picturesque Stony Brook. More relaxed in both atmosphere and menu items than its fancier sister, Mirabelle Restaurant, the Tavern offers diners a chance to eat well-prepared French and American comfort food while feeling pampered in a casual setting.
