The Riverhead Project in Riverhead is unique for the area. At the entry point to the north fork, it’s proving to be not only one of the most popular spots, but it is also one of the most revered for its unique space, excellent cuisine and busy lounge area.
Although Grillfire in Merrick may be known most for their excellent hamburgers (their own special blend, mixed for them by Main Street Meats), they also have a great Sunday brunch experience. Over the years we have frequented this popular spot, conveniently located on Sunrise Highway, to wind down the weekend and usher in the day of rest.
PRIME American Kitchen and Bar in Huntington is one of those restaurants on Long Island that not only has that “wow” factor, but it also lives up to the hype with their wonderful cuisine served with a side of an even better view.
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.
For the past six years, Nonnina Italian Bistro in West Islip has been catering to an upscale, mostly local clientele with its excellent dinner service. It’s an upscale atmosphere, complete with a lounge area with fireplace, bi-level dining and a romantic and dark mood. We hopped into the kitchen to photograph some of their dishes as they were coming off of the line.
Widely celebrated and often pricy, Anthony Scotto Restaurants dominate the upper-echelon of Long Island’s dining scene. Known for their large restaurants and magnificent decor, Scotto is a well respected name. With Rare 650 in Syosset, Insignia in Smithtown and Blackstone Steakhouse in Melville, they’re a staple of the power-crowd.
When we tell friends that we’re at “Your Mother’s House”, they may want to first punch us in the face, but after hearing that we’re actually at a sports bar / restaurant in Garden City Park that has one of the largest tv screens around, they’re usually high-tailing it over as well.
Inside the Holiday Inn on Old Country Road, construction has been going on for roughly 6 months on transforming their old restaurant into the newer restaurant/bar The Sporting News Grill.
Chef Brian Fugit is now at the helm of Horace & Sylvia’s in Babylon, an establishment that boasts a wonderful bar scene and great food as well. With 18 beers on tap (and local offerings such as Blue Point, etc.) they’ve recently been delving into a once per month “Beer Dinner” to pair up some cuisine with tasty brew.
With two locations in Suffolk County (this one in Port Jeff and the other in nearby Hauppauge), Pace’s Steakhouse pulls double duty as a neighborhood gathering spot and a classic American Steakhouse. We touched down at Pace’s recently to take in their wonderful atmosphere and of course, the food.
