Lil’ Left Coast, the little brother to Merrick’s popular Left Coast Kitchen has announced that they are shuttering their doors on the concept. Acknowledging that the Lil’ Left Coast concept was “not concise enough” and that it was an overly ambitious menu, it never completely caught on and ultimately cost too much to run.
NY Cupcakery is a small cupcake shop located on Merrick Road in Bellmore. Since 2010 they’ve been baking wonderful cupcakes, cake pops and cakes not only for the general public, but also for private events and parties. The imagination of the bakers on site is endless and some of the crafted baked goodness coming out of this shop rivals any of the best across the country.
Variety is the spice of life and if you’re looking for your variety in the way of a different brew for every night of the year, effin gruven is your next go-to spot on a Saturday night (or any night, for that matter). You’ve got college kids, post-college grads and the random mid-40’s guy (and girl) all represented in the crowd, ensuring that everyone will feel at home.
The highlight of the bar is their huge selection of beers, with specialty and hard to find beers available on a limited run (or until they run out). On some nights you may be able to find Great South Bay Hoppocratic Oath, Brooklyn Blast Pale Ale, Rogue Brewery Chocolate Stout, Southampton, Dogfish and more. Their location on Sunrise Highway is perfect if you want to leave the car at home, hop on the LIRR and enjoy a safe night away from the worries of who’s going to be the designated driver.
One more thing; if you want order a Budweiser, head on down to Mulcahy’s, they don’t serve that here. Now, move along.
