This month’s featured “for sale” is located in Merrick at the Barclay Townhouses II development. A cooperative townhouse (you own shares in the corporation – rather than owning the real estate outright), this updated 3-bedroom / 2.5-bath is up for sale by owner for $390,000.

MP Taverna in Roslyn is a rarity on Long Island. It’s helmed by owner/chef Michael Psilakis, a heavyweight in the international scene. He’s amassed a Michelin star, a James Beard Award nomination and he can be seen on various television series regularly airing (including Iron Chef). It’s a wonderful thing that he has planted MP Taverna, his take on a modern Greek bistro, right here in our own backyard.
Looking for that old 1950′s style diner setting to have your weekend breakfast served piping hot? If so, then you owe it to yourself to visit Mineola Diner in Mineola. Just like stepping back in time, the small restaurant is a nod to the past with tastes that are certainly in the present.

At The Chef’s Corner Cafe in Mineola, something special is happening. Through the friendship between owners Maryellen Villalta and Chef Israel Aguilar, they’re taking their great working relationship and putting it towards building some wonderful cuisine that both Mineola residents and workers alike are flocking to.
