With Plattduetsche Park opening the doors to its new Beer Hall on Friday night at 6pm sharp, visitors to this Franklin Square hot spot will take in revamped furnishings, a larger environment and some live music as well.
For those of us who have been patiently waiting for the new Buffalo Wild Wings in Westbury to open, our wait is coming to a close. Occupying the space that previously held Mirage Nightclub and then most recently GLO, this new Buffalo Wild Wings is going to be massive and probably won’t disappoint, when they open on March 16th.
Stopping into The Bulldog Grille in Amityville not too long ago we were surprised that they were no longer a part of the Lessing’s family of restaurants (they had just been sold), but that didn’t deter us from hopping up to the bar, taking in some football, beer, wings and sliders.
Refined, tasteful, contemporary. These are words that may be used to describe a vineyard or a winery tasting room. But a beer tasting room? Not so much. That all changed last Friday when Hoptron Brewtique threw open its doors on West Main Street in Patchogue. Beer lovers of Long Island – you’ve just been served.
The Greene Turtle, a Maryland based sports bar and restaurant that has been expanding with franchises across the country is setting its sights on Long Island with a soon-to-open spot on Hempstead Turnpike in Franklin Square. This spot is the location of the old Boulder Creek and it will be re-branded to meet the specifics of The Greene Turtle.
We had a preconceived notion that The Good Life would be a great meal. When we visited their sister location, The Phoenix in Seaford, it was one of the better meals that we had had on Long Island and were quite excited. The Good Life held our expectations and made for a wonderful evening out.
For the last 35 years, Canterbury Ales has been a beloved watering hole in the heart of the village of Huntington. There’s good reason that so many people swear by it and keep visiting; their local brew, full menu and medieval atmosphere help to make this one of Long Island’s best.
Chef Brian Fugit is now at the helm of Horace & Sylvia’s in Babylon, an establishment that boasts a wonderful bar scene and great food as well. With 18 beers on tap (and local offerings such as Blue Point, etc.) they’ve recently been delving into a once per month “Beer Dinner” to pair up some cuisine with tasty brew.
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.
