We’re huge fans of Mediterranean cuisine and we’re also big on the concept of fast-casual, a genre that favorites such as Chiptole excel at all over the island.

Update: This location is now closed. Easy come, easy go.
Chef Michael Ginor, a superstar in both Great Neck (TLV and LOLA among his most recent projects) and points further out is expanding his culinary reach on the North Shore with the opening of Restaurant Anise, a pan-Mediterranean establishment. Two weeks into their new life, Anise is picking up buzz and customers with its Hoomoos, kabobs, fresh seafood and falafels.
