Now that summer season is upon us, Montauk will soon be waking up from its winter slumber and droves of Long Islanders will be heading out east to “The End” to relax and take advantage of the weather and the location. One of the spots that is great for a cheap and quick bite is Sausages Pizza & Pastabilities, located on Montauk Hwy.
When we last visited Vespa Cibobuono in Great Neck, owner Marco Mollo had recently purchased the restaurant from its previous owner. Fast forward almost a year and Marco has taken the restaurant, a Northern Italian masterpiece and transformed it into his own; Ponte Mollo. Placing his own stamp on the space, formerly known to those driving on Northern Boulevard for its Vespa continuously parked on the sidewalk, Marco can now continue to grow his expanding fan base of local diners and those looking for a wonderful italian night out.
San Marzano, the intensely popular brick oven pizza joint on Merrick Avenue in Merrick will be temporarily closing its doors on August 12th to make way for a new and improved spot.
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.
Vincent’s Clam Bar in Carle Place is a treat for those who love festive atmospheres, homemade food, large portions and friendly staff. We’ve been coming here for years and with good reason; it’s affordable, fun and yummy.
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.
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.
