Lucharitos in Greenport

Off-season it may be tough to find a great drink spot that also serves up great food as well as a great atmosphere. In Greenport, near the end of the North Fork, it can get a bit quiet off-season, but that’s ok. When quiet isn’t what you’re looking for, Lucharitos will (usually) fulfill your need.

Maragarita’s Cafe in East Meadow

For years, Margarita’s Cafe in East Meadow (in the East Meadow Bowl shopping center) has been a staple of our dining experiences. Many people who live within a 5-10 minute range of this restaurant / bar don’t know that it is there, and that’s not such a bad thing. On weekend nights the wait for a table can top an hour; but at least the great bar is there to pop out an endless supply of margaritas and other drinks while you wait.

Margarita Grille in Westhampton Beach

With summer winding down we’re only a few weeks away from a quiet trip out east and a return to normalcy in the Hamptons. The village of Westhampton Beach, Main Street, especially, is a great spot to walk around, grab a bite to eat and explore. We stopped by Margarita Grilled recently for a mid-day lunch, sat outside on their deck and watched as pedestrians passed by.

The Chef’s Corner Cafe in Mineola

The Chef’s Corner Cafe in Mineola

At The Chef’s Corner Cafe in Mineola, something special is happening. Through the friendship between owners Maryellen Villalta and Chef Israel Aguilar, they’re taking their great working relationship and putting it towards building some wonderful cuisine that both Mineola residents and workers alike are flocking to.

Owner Joseph DeNicola has hit the mark again (his other Long Island restaurants, Ruvo East, Ruvo West and La Tavola have been pleasing Suffolk crowds for years) with his new location, Del Fuego, in St. James. This tiny area is packed with great restaurants, and this hopping Tex-Mex joint adds just one more to the growing list of reasons that we love St. James.

Los Compadres in Huntington Station

Los Compadres in Huntington Station

Authentic Mexican cuisine doesn’t have to come from a fancy restaurant that is booked on a Saturday night. Sometimes it’s served best in the form of an off-the-beaten-path shack that does nothing more than pump out homestyle Mexican cuisine. This is what we consider Los Compadres in Huntington Station.

Food News: La Fondita In Amagansett To Close For Winter

Food News: La Fondita In Amagansett To Close For Winter

La Fondita, a favorite stop of ours just off the road in Amagansett is set to close for the winter this coming Sunday, October 23, 2011. A seasonal restaurant due to its outdoor dining areas, they usually serve their wintertime cuisine out of their sister-restaurant Townline BBQ just up the road. That’s not so this year.

Food News: Taco Joe’s To Open in Westbury

Food News: Taco Joe’s To Open in Westbury

Taco Joe’s on Merrick Road in Massapequa is a great counter-service, kid-friendly Mexican restaurant with the benefit of a Yogurt & Such built-in for those after dinner dessert options (and a small yogurt is included in the kids meal as well.) We’re happy to report that they’re making the move to the north shore as well with their now under-construction shop on Old Country Rd.

Notable Opening: Chipotle in Great Neck

Notable Opening: Chipotle in Great Neck

One of our favorite non-fast food fast food joints has to be Chiptole. Known for their fresh cuisine that is cooked in front of you (there’s no bag opening here), they’ve been growing steadily over the past few years. If you’ve wanted some in western Nassau County, you’ve had to travel to either Carle Place or Uniondale, which for some can prove to be quite inconvenient. Starting December 15th that all changes. The newest location to open its’ doors is located in Great Neck at 44 Great Neck Rd.
