Seasons 52 has always been known for their mini desserts, served up in a shot glass and baked to perfection. They’re announcing today a series of new mini indulgence flavors that are both seasonal and permanent to their menu.
Sure, it may be consistently below freezing now and for the past few months, but where others see a reason to stay home and sit in front of the fire, we see an opportunity to get out and try new and exciting yogurt shops. Who else in their right minds would want freezing desserts on a freezing day? We may be in a minority, but we’ll enjoy every chance that we can get. YOLO Yogurt in Roslyn is slower than normal due to the weather conditions, so this is your time to pounce. In the summer months we often have to wait on long lines to pay while our yogurt melts, but this time of year, that is not an issue.
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.
When Relish opened roughly two years ago in Kings Park, on Suffolk County’s north shore, owner / chef Stephen Cardello (formerly the chef at Grey Horse Tavern in Bayport) probably couldn’t have imagined its success and popularity with local foodies. Their weekend breakfast has been creating plenty of buzz in local circles and helping their cause is their location; on the corner of Main Street and also close to many of their suppliers. This has led to creative, fresh and seasonal fare.
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.
Michael Turner and Brian Shuren oversee all aspects of the operation at Bistro 25, a casual and refined bistro located in Sayville, on Long Island’s south shore. With an interior on the smaller side, the bistro packs as much flavor and creativeness into its dishes as they do diners on any weekend night. We hit them up on a quiet weekday at lunchtime to take in the vibe and capture the essence of their culinary magic.
A 1940’s railcar on Long Island is something quote unusual. Even more unusual is a 1940’s railcar serving up authentic barbecue that is delighting everyone who visits and creating a cult following for itself. Such is the case at Biscuits & Barbecue.
