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.
One of the oldest restaurants in Long Beach, Gino’s is a family-owned establishment that has served generations of locals wonderful pizza and other italian specialties for as long as most can remember. It’s undergone renovations over the years and is probably more appealing on the eyes than the Gino’s that you remember from the past.
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.
