Red Fish Grille may not be as known as it should be, perhaps because it is attached to a strip of stores and is not a stand alone restaurant, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not serving top-notch seafood and other dishes to the Plainview crowd.
MP Taverna in Roslyn is a rarity on Long Island. It’s helmed by owner/chef Michael Psilakis, a heavyweight in the international scene. He’s amassed a Michelin star, a James Beard Award nomination and he can be seen on various television series regularly airing (including Iron Chef). It’s a wonderful thing that he has planted MP Taverna, his take on a modern Greek bistro, right here in our own backyard.
Looking for that old 1950′s style diner setting to have your weekend breakfast served piping hot? If so, then you owe it to yourself to visit Mineola Diner in Mineola. Just like stepping back in time, the small restaurant is a nod to the past with tastes that are certainly in the present.
While we didn’t see any food during our visit to Ruvo in Port Jefferson, we still wanted to take our readers on an exterior and interior tour of this revered italian eatery on the north shore. Located almost waterfront, Ruvo is an italian eatery curated by the same ownership as their other location in Greenlawn, La Tavola in Sayville and Del Fuego in St. James. The open atrium, bright colors and bar area certainly holds the key to any type of dining experience.
St. James is our favorite dining destination on the island for one reason; it’s a small hamlet located in the Town of Smithtown, but in its tiny footprint lays a veritable treasure trove of amazing restaurants in every price range. This is worth a day trip to experience the variety of cuisines as well as the talented chefs that are carving their way through Suffolk. We’ve hit up a few of our favorites to show our readers what lies in waiting for you once you make the trip out.
Pizza is an institution on Long Island and throughout the country we’re known as having some of the best-tasting options around. We’ve scoured through Long Island’s pizza scene to bring you four of our favorites; a variety of options no matter where you are located.
Being a great seafood restaurant would be enough for most establishments, but being one of the largest seafood markets in the area as well is taking Southside Fish and Clam to another level. The abundance of seafood pouring through these doors daily is helping to keep prices low and quality way up.
Real Jewish delis are hard to come by these days. As Wally Goetz, the owner of Lido Kosher Deli will tell you, it’s a dying breed. Lido Kosher Deli is a hub of activity on the south shore. During our lunchtime visit there were streams of people coming in to take out and sit down at one of the best on the island.
When Sacramone’s originally opened in 1989 at their Queens location, they probably never could have imagined that almost 25 years later they’d still be going strong and opening up another location on Long Island.
Almost a week never goes by when we’re not stopping by our favorite hometown deli. Smith Street Deli is the neighborhood go-to spot for all phases of the day; they’ve got breakfast, lunch and dinner covered. So, if you’re ever in the Merrick area, this is one casual spot that you can’t afford to miss.
