Food News: Nicholas James Bistro in Merrick Closed

Sad Food News coming out of Merrick today. Kevin Liebov, the owner/chef of Nicholas James Bistro in Merrick has announced that they have shuttered their doors, after 19 years in service, mostly due to economic reasons and the increasing rents that are turning up on Merrick Road.

Today marks St. Patrick’s Day and what better way to ring that in than to focus on one of the island’s best watering holes that also serves great food; Corry’s Ale House, located in Wantagh.

Quick In & Out: The Frisky Oyster in Greenport

Stopping by on a whim, in the dead of winter, to The Frisky Oyster in Greenport was as unexpected for us as it was for them. The beloved Greenport restaurant is a mainstay in the sleepy North Fork village and Owner / Chef Robby Beaver, at the helm since 2010, has been the most recent curator of this wonderful location.

YOLO Yogurt in Roslyn

Sure, it may be consistently below freezing now and for the past few months, but where others see a reason to stay home and sit in front of the fire, we see an opportunity to get out and try new and exciting yogurt shops. Who else in their right minds would want freezing desserts on a freezing day? We may be in a minority, but we’ll enjoy every chance that we can get. YOLO Yogurt in Roslyn is slower than normal due to the weather conditions, so this is your time to pounce. In the summer months we often have to wait on long lines to pay while our yogurt melts, but this time of year, that is not an issue.

Quick In & Out: Ariana Restaurant in Huntington

Not long ago we headed to Huntington to shoot an episode of Restaurant Hunter on FiOS1 Long Island. One of the great restaurants that we were featuring that day was Ariana Restaurant, an Afghani / Mediterranean spot on Main Street that is known as being one of the best Afghani restaurants on the island.

Wild Fig in Roslyn

We’re huge fans of Mediterranean cuisine and we’re also big on the concept of fast-casual, a genre that favorites such as Chiptole excel at all over the island. For years we have passed by Wild Fig on Northern Boulevard without going inside. If we had known that this location was a mash-up of all of those things that we love, we would have visited years sooner.

Inside and Out: Mim’s in Syosset

Mim’s in Syosset has been somewhat of an institution for the local area on Berry Hill Road. Although some of the restaurants that are located within earshot of Mim’s have turned over at least 5-6 times in almost as many years, Mim’s has proven to be a local favorite that is still catering to the same clientele that it did when it opened many years ago.

The Oar Seafood Grille in Patchogue

The Oar Seafood Grille has been a Patchogue favorite for (almost) the last 30 years. Waterfront on the Patchogue River and with outdoor dining, all one has to do is enter the restaurant and look up at the ceiling to know that they are about to encounter some wonderful seafood. Oars and paddles line the restaurant and make you just want to jump into a boat and start paddling.

The Riverhead Project in Riverhead is unique for the area. At the entry point to the north fork, it’s proving to be not only one of the most popular spots, but it is also one of the most revered for its unique space, excellent cuisine and busy lounge area.
