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.
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.
Five Pennies is our new favorite dessert spot on Long Island. It’s got everything that we want from an ice cream shop; fresh ice cream, frozen custard, incredible ices and an owner whose sole purpose is to keep making them better (and more delectable).
Those nights walking down Woodcleft Avenue on Freeport’s Nautical Mile can get you in the mood for something very sweet (especially if you’ve been eating some of that salty seafood all night). We’ve got you covered with Pip’s Ice Cream, located a stone’s throw away from the waterfront views.
With so many new restaurants popping up across Long Island, it’s easy to forget those restaurants with a rich history of serving Long Islanders for nearly a century. Hildebrandt’s in Williston Park is one such restaurant that has served many generations of families and their commitment to serving quality food and reasonable prices cannot be overlooked.
Those of us on the south shore really do love our ice cream and ices. Maybe it’s related to the beach and the way that the summer brings out the frozen dessert lover in us. Either way, we’d be hard-pressed to find a little ice cream bar with such a rich history.
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.
