You may not know Jack’s Shack in Glen Head but you probably know its owner. Willie Degel, host of the wildly popular Food Network show Restaurant Stakeout and who is also the owner of Uncle Jack’s Steakhouse is calling the shots at this organic fast casual spot and not surprisingly, it’s pretty good.
Great Neck’s new Bareburger is the first (but not the last) Long Island location of the popular restaurant that can be found throughout the NYC Metro area. Focusing on organic and quality ingredients, this new restaurant, located in an old retail store, is expanding the options on Middle Neck Road.
Shake Shack, a virtual institution across New York City and most recently expanding across the country is setting its sights on Long Island with their new location, opening on Saturday, November 10, 2012 at the new Gallery at Westbury Plaza shopping center located in Garden City.
Medford’s newest eatery, Long Island Ale House, is more than it’s name suggests. Sure, they have over 30 beers on tap featuring many local brews, and they’re sold at an attractive price of just $4 or $5 a pint (plus $1 off that during Happy Hour). And yes, you could come here just to belly up to their long bar or shoot some pool while mingling with old friends or chatting up new ones. But take care not to miss out on what we think is the other star of the show at this place: wonderful, innovative, locally-sourced food that goes well beyond the standard pub grub you might expect.
Two years ago Bobby Flay opened up Bobby’s Burger Palace in the Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove. We’re not sure what his thinking was on the location choice, since he spends most of his time in NYC (Roosevelt Field or even Walt Whitman malls would’ve been closer), but one thing is for sure; he’s bringing a unique flavor to Suffolk County with this burger dominated menu.
*Update: Red Robin is open as of May 9th.
Construction has been under way for quite some time at the Country Glen Center (next to Chipotle and Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza) and it’s only now that we have an idea of what is coming to this ever-increasing gastronomic hotspot.
