Northport is a wonderful village on the north shore of Suffolk County. The waterfront Main Street is a great spot to wander around both in the warmer weather and also when it’s a bit cooler and not as crowded.
It’s been quite the year for La Bottega in Merrick. They went from having one store, to taking over their next door neighbor and expanding to completely closing within the span of a few months. Well, now we have a better idea of what is happening over at that street-level spot.
How many times have we gorged ourselves on a full pie of thin-crust pizza only to be left with a feeling of dread, contempt for our bodies and only a clean plate staring back at us? Well, here at East of NYC we’ve lost count, but we’ve also found the ultimate solution to this problem. Skinny Pizza, in Roslyn.
Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza has been open in Carle Place for the better part of a year and now they’re expanding east with their new location in Woodbury. Open since early August, Anthony’s will be showing residents of the north shore how things are “well done.”
When we asked our good friend Nathan King of www.nathanrking.com for his favorite Suffolk County pizza spot, his response was an overwhelming love for Pizzetteria Brunetti in Westhampton Beach. Wanting to know more, we sent him back there again with his camera in tow to take some gerat pictures of the venue and the food.
When New York native Anthony Bruno opened his first restaurant in Florida a few years back we bet he never would have dreamed that that restaurant would have 20+ locations and a popular outpost in the Long Island area. Either way, we’re experiencing the fruits of his labor with Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza in Carle Place.
La Parma II in Huntington is more of an institution than just a restaurant. There’s four La Parma’s on Long Island (Oceanside, Port Washington and Williston Park rounding out the other three). What sets La Parma apart from the rest is their family style menu, quality servings and the history that comes with being one of the best restaurants on Long Island.
Pizza places are a dime a dozen on Long Island (as are sushi and yogurt spots, among others), so this week’s Street Level series features Cinelli’s in Oceanside. Located on the corner of Davison Avenue and Oceanside Road, this is a convenient spot to pull in and eat in or take out. For those who wish to dine at home, they also have a fleet of marked cars waiting for delivery.
With Nassau County under its domination (yeah Merrick and Plainview, we’re talking about you), La Piazza has now set its crosshairs on Suffolk County with the newest of its locations, located in Melville. We’ve been dining at La Piazza since the early 1990’s and still frequent both original locations with a satisfied appetite every time.
