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.
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.
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.
Port Jefferson Station may not have the waterfront dining options that Port Jefferson has, but that doesn’t mean that we should leave them out in the cold and not visit. We’ve scoured the area and came up with a few great dining options for our readers to visit and experience for a wonderful dining day in Suffolk County.
When we first posted about Shake Shack’s opening (it’s today!), we promised that we would have some pictures for our readers to get a first look. We visited their pre-opening trial and our camera was with us the entire way.
**Update: This restaurant has closed and has changed owners / name, etc.
Our first exposure to Angelina’s Fireshack came from FiOS1 LI’s Restaurant Hunter (disclosure: we’re on this show as well) when host Rob Petrone took a shot at their Insanley Hot Sauce, which was smothered on wings. He signed a waiver form, essentially releasing Angelina’s from any and all liability should the hot sauce kill him, but thankfully he made it past that challenge (1 bite!) and is still with us, and breathing.
If you have FiOS on Long Island, you’ll know that the best show on the air is Restaurant Hunter, airing on FiOS1 Long Island, Thursday nights at 8pm (shameless plug, since you can find us on there weekly, as well, with host Rob Petrone). If you watched the most recent episode featuring an entire episode dedicated to Bobby Flay and a great interview with the culinary master, they made mention of viewers helping to create a “Long Island Burger”.
Making his way out to Nassau County, Bobby Flay himself ushered in the opening of his new burger spot, Bobby’s Burger Palace, yesterday in Roosevelt Field Mall, marking his second Long Island location (and 9th overall) of the growing brand.
Living on this island for the better part of the last 30 years, we’ve never stopped into All American Hamburger in Massapequa, although we’ve passed it hundreds of times in the last few years alone. Our upcoming burger episode on FiOS1 Long Island’s Restaurant Hunter gave us the impetus to stop by and see what they’re all about.
