Seven days a week, Babylon Bean Coffee House is open for your pleasure. If your pleasure is sitting and enjoying a delicious cup of coffee in an inviting atmosphere (with free wifi) or listening to live music on the weekend nights, this local spot is just for you.
Among the many restaurants that are in Rockville Centre sits its newest shining star, Kashi Japanese. A sister-restaurant to their other busy location on the north shore’s equivalent to Rockville Centre, Huntington Village (both with busy village atmospheres), Kashi will make you feel blue, but not in the way that you might be thinking.
Down on the western edge of Long Beach lies Bahia Social Club, a small plates restaurant that transforms itself from a bar and restaurant with outdoor seating to a small concert venue at 10pm on weekend nights. We were there recently to dine on their tapas menu and then we transitioned inside for a concert. Of course, we brought our camera along to capture the food and the scene.
New for 2012 is The Bamboo Bar and Grill on the Nautical Mile in Freeport. We stopped by this past weekend before their busy lunch and afternoon rush to relax on their outdoor sand-covered dining area overlooking the calm waters and the marina.
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).
We’ve just received news that The Crazy Donkey, a constant on the LI music scene for the past ten years has shuttered their doors. The busy bar / music venue has suffered the fate of many venues in the past few years and the hope is that they’ll reinvent and turn the space into something new.
