Some things are too good to last forever, and now the same can be said about Honu Kitchen & Cocktails in Huntington Village. The restaurant has transformed within the past few years from Blue Honu, the small plates focused New American eatery to its current form, Honu Kitchen & Cocktails, offering up larger entrees in an elegant setting.
With Nassau County under its domination (yeah Merrick and Plainview, we’re talking about you), La Piazza has now set its crosshairs on Suffolk County with the newest of its locations, located in Melville. We’ve been dining at La Piazza since the early 1990’s and still frequent both original locations with a satisfied appetite every time.

Sushi Ko was so new that the first two times that we dined there that they hadn’t even yet printed up their menus for takeout. We arrived during the soft opening of the restaurant, a time that normally gets all of the kinks out of the wait staff and perfects the recipes and presentations of the cuisines at hand. Surprisingly, Sushi Ko performed at a level that screamed more “we’ve been at this for years!” than “we’ve only been open for days.”
Located in Water Mill, Muse Restaurant & Aquatic Lounge is a great dining establishment. We’re lucky to have Chef Matthew Guiffrida show us a perfect fall/winter offering, with his Butternut Experience.
One of our favorite non-fast food fast food joints has to be Chiptole. Known for their fresh cuisine that is cooked in front of you (there’s no bag opening here), they’ve been growing steadily over the past few years. If you’ve wanted some in western Nassau County, you’ve had to travel to either Carle Place or Uniondale, which for some can prove to be quite inconvenient. Starting December 15th that all changes. The newest location to open its’ doors is located in Great Neck at 44 Great Neck Rd.
