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.
If you’re familiar with Merrick, you’ll know that not unlike every other town on Long Island, there are a plethora of Japanese and sushi restaurants. Having opened their doors to the raw-seafood consuming public, Merrick Sushi & Tea is filling a niche that not many other restaurants are able to.
One meal that never goes out of style is breakfast. There’s something about the rich flavors of waffles topped with whipped cream, or pancakes topped with fresh fruits that really sets the day up right.

Mitchell’s Restaurant in Oceanside has a name that is steeped in history. Since 1938, the Mitchell’s brand has been alive on Long Island. There may be two restaurants of the same name (there is another location in Valley Stream that was sold a few years back, but still retains the name), but when you experience Mitchell’s for yourself, you may find that there’s nothing like it anywhere else.
Between Winthrop Hospital, the courts and the burgeoning residential scene in Mineola, there’s good reason to be kept in the know on what’s happening on the culinary front.

Smokin’ Al’s is named after its founder, Al Horowitz, originally from Brooklyn and now transplanted to Long Island in order to cook up and share some of the tastiest BBQ this side of Memphis. There’s no one style to this BBQ and the flavors are really a combination of the various styles of BBQ that Al has come across over the years during his travels across the country. We hit up Smokin’ Al’s in Bay Shore (there’s another, newer location in Massapequa Park as well) to take some pictures. To view our little photographic tour, click on through the jump.
