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.

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.

Inatome in Valley Stream – Revisited

When we last visited Valley Stream’s favorite hibachi restaurant, Inatome, they were a few days away from their re-opening. Stricken by a fire on Halloween three years ago, they rebuilt better than ever. Although we had an exclusive photo tour of the restaurant, we needed to return to actually experience the food; and what a wonderful meal it was.

Sunday Brunch of the Week on Long Island: Grillfire in Merrick

Although Grillfire in Merrick may be known most for their excellent hamburgers (their own special blend, mixed for them by Main Street Meats), they also have a great Sunday brunch experience. Over the years we have frequented this popular spot, conveniently located on Sunrise Highway, to wind down the weekend and usher in the day of rest.

Quick Stop: Siam Lotus in Bay Shore

Siam Lotus is one of those restaurants on Long Island that is not much at look at from the street level (and maybe not from inside, either), but shouldn’t get overlooked, as they are one of the top rated restaurants on the island.

For our last regular segment on the wildly popular Restaurant Hunter on FiOS1 Long Island it was fitting that we sat down at Big Daddy’s in Massapequa Park for our proper send-off. With a New Orleans festive atmosphere we were able to enjoy the cuisine for this going away party.
