Smith Street Deli, a mainstay in the Merrick area is now set to a second location in Bellmore. A slight change to their name, going by Smith Street Deli South, this will move them down to a location south of Sunrise Highway (their Merrick location is located north of Sunrise near the Meadowbrook Parkway).
When we first met Chef Noah Schwartz he was at the helm of Seafood Barge in Southold way back in 2007(ish). Not too long after our first meeting at that location, they closed up shop and Noah decided to head out on his own. A few miles away in Greenport, the old Frisky Oyster bar location was opening up, so due to the collision of events, Noah decided to open up Noah’s in the heart of Greenport, on Front Street.
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.
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 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.
When one gets invited to North Fork Table and Inn in Southold, on Long Island’s North Fork, one drops everything and makes a beeline for the restaurant (and brings a camera with them to catalogue the trip). Such was the case on a recent chilly Sunday afternoon. True to fashion, North Fork Table and Inn lived up to the hype and showed us why they have been one of the top restaurants on Long Island (28 out of 30 for food in ZAGAT) on a consistent basis.
Smashburger, one of a handful of burger chains that have been steadily popping up all over the island is set to open up its newest island location in New Hyde Park, on Friday, October 18, 2013.
Krisch’s Restaurant and Ice Cream Parlor in Massapequa is not only a wildly popular restaurant on Long Island, but it is one that is steeped in history; one of the last remaining old-school ice cream shops around.
Nicholas James Bistro has been serving the Merrick community since 1996 when chef Keith Lubov, along with his father, Charles, purchased the restaurant. With specials that change daily, the restaurant doubles as both your standard restaurant and a catering operation, serving corporate clients and events in the local area.
Sunday Brunch has always been one of our favorite meals. We’re constantly on the lookout for brunch spots that we feel confident enough to share with our readers and our friends. With that in mind, we stopped by Thyme in Roslyn, overlooking Roslyn Pond, to enjoy their decor and their cuisine.
