Across the country, Seasons 52 restaurants have been operating with a focus on great seasonal portions that all sit below 475 calories. This feature alone is setting them apart from the pack as this country’s chain restaurants are inundating menus with 1,000+ calorie “healthy options”.
As we learned from Long Island Business News today, Red Mango, the increasingly visible frozen yogurt stores popping up everywhere from NYC to Long Island is opening another store in Manhasset on Plandome Rd. (not far form the train station). The franchisee who will be opening this new outpost also has another located in the Wheatley Plaza shopping center in Greenvale.
Pizza places are a dime a dozen on Long Island (as are sushi and yogurt spots, among others), so this week’s Street Level series features Cinelli’s in Oceanside. Located on the corner of Davison Avenue and Oceanside Road, this is a convenient spot to pull in and eat in or take out. For those who wish to dine at home, they also have a fleet of marked cars waiting for delivery.
*Update: Red Robin is open as of May 9th.
Construction has been under way for quite some time at the Country Glen Center (next to Chipotle and Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza) and it’s only now that we have an idea of what is coming to this ever-increasing gastronomic hotspot.
Variety is the spice of life and if you’re looking for your variety in the way of a different brew for every night of the year, effin gruven is your next go-to spot on a Saturday night (or any night, for that matter). You’ve got college kids, post-college grads and the random mid-40’s guy (and girl) all represented in the crowd, ensuring that everyone will feel at home.
The highlight of the bar is their huge selection of beers, with specialty and hard to find beers available on a limited run (or until they run out). On some nights you may be able to find Great South Bay Hoppocratic Oath, Brooklyn Blast Pale Ale, Rogue Brewery Chocolate Stout, Southampton, Dogfish and more. Their location on Sunrise Highway is perfect if you want to leave the car at home, hop on the LIRR and enjoy a safe night away from the worries of who’s going to be the designated driver.
One more thing; if you want order a Budweiser, head on down to Mulcahy’s, they don’t serve that here. Now, move along.

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.”
