Red Fish Grille may not be as known as it should be, perhaps because it is attached to a strip of stores and is not a stand alone restaurant, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not serving top-notch seafood and other dishes to the Plainview crowd.
Being a great seafood restaurant would be enough for most establishments, but being one of the largest seafood markets in the area as well is taking Southside Fish and Clam to another level. The abundance of seafood pouring through these doors daily is helping to keep prices low and quality way up.
Riverbay, a long-time mainstay and fixture on Willis Avenue in Williston Park has served its last dish. Closing to make way for a new bank location, this Poll family owned restaurant and building will not be pleasing diners any longer.
With sister French restaurants across the island (Aperitif, Brasserie Persil and Sage Bistro), this is their only location on the north shore, in Woodbury. The restaurant itself is high-end and gorgeous, catering to the local upscale community. It’s because of our positive track record with their other locations that we stopped in to snap a few photos for our readers to peek behind the doors and see what is inside.
Bigelow’s Seafood has been a mainstay of Long Island’s south shore since way back in 1939. Something of a relic around these parts, it’s known as one of the best spots in the area to get fresh seafood, fried clams and belly warming soup. It’s one of those restaurants that we always passed, swearing to go in the next time we were around. Thankfully, that visit just came. And it was worth the wait.
Once in a while a restaurant so completely satisfies you that you’re left wondering why you haven’t gone there before and experienced all that it had to offer. LIMANI in Roslyn is just that restaurant, but high accolades and an impressive experience come at a cost; and that cost is quite steep.
One of the best Lobster Rolls that we have experienced on Long Island belongs to a worthy establishment in East Hampton; Bostwick’s Chowder House. It’s a gem on the South Fork and in these summer months, nothing is better than sitting outside in the sun and consuming one of the best around.
Seasons 52 in Garden City is a great addition to the Long Island dining scene. A “chain” restaurant owned by Darden Restaurants, there’s nothing chain about it. It’s a high-end restaurant that focuses on healthy dishes, superior ambience and carefully selected wine options.
Is Amy, of Crabby Amy’s, really that Crabby? We’ve met her in the flesh and we can thankfully report that she was actually really nice, and not as Crabby as her restaurant’s name would leave you to believe.
Peter’s Clam Bar is such an institution on the south shore of Long Island (and very much taken for granted that it will always be there) that like the Statue of Liberty, we always pass it, but never visit. That changed last week when we stopped by for a Friday night dinner. We arrived to live music, calm water and affordable seafood. We left satisfied and vowing to return.
