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.
H2O Seafood Grill in Smithtown is just one of many restaurants on Long Island owned and operated by the Bohlsen Restaurant Group, one of the premier groups in the area. Focusing on fresh seafood dishes in a wonderful atmosphere, H2O is doing for the north shore what Tellers and Monsoon are doing on the south shore.
Our very first foray into sushi was way back around 1991 when Hama Sushi in Plainview was then known as Yamato. A lot of time has passed but one thing has stayed the same; this spot is continuing to pump out superb sushi and other Japanese cuisine.
Searching for a respectable dim sum restaurant on Long Island is a formidable task. When throwing out ideas for a Sunday morning meal, we turned to the twitter-sphere to get some ideas. We heard great things from multiple sources about Fortune Wheel in Levittown and as a result, we high-tailed it on over.
Great Neck is filled with culinary delights for every budget. While it may be an expensive town to live and play in, it doesn’t always have to be so expensive to eat (although it can be that, too). We’ve compiled a few restaurants that we’ve spoken about on FiOS1 Long Island’s Restaurant Hunter for our readers to check out and enjoy.
Among the many restaurants that are in Rockville Centre sits its newest shining star, Kashi Japanese. A sister-restaurant to their other busy location on the north shore’s equivalent to Rockville Centre, Huntington Village (both with busy village atmospheres), Kashi will make you feel blue, but not in the way that you might be thinking.
Thai Station is aptly named. It’s a Thai restaurant located about 3 blocks north of the Merrick LIRR station on Merrick Avenue. It’s a small spot that for the past few years has been one of the more popular restaurants in the area for local residents.
5,400 square feet of Asian cuisine await at Ginza, one of the newest hot spots to open up on the south shore this year. The redesigned space, formerly a Sizzler Steakhouse in Massapequa, is a trendy haven for sushi lovers and interior design lovers alike.
While most buffets will have you and everyone else circling around a large presentation table loaded with food (and who knows what germs), Sushi Palace is more refined in nature. All you can eat sushi comes from the sushi chefs behind the sushi bar while you request your next rolls with the waitstaff, made to order.
