Food News: Ponte Mollo Replaces Vespa Cibobuono in Great Neck

When we last visited Vespa Cibobuono in Great Neck, owner Marco Mollo had recently purchased the restaurant from its previous owner. Fast forward almost a year and Marco has taken the restaurant, a Northern Italian masterpiece and transformed it into his own; Ponte Mollo. Placing his own stamp on the space, formerly known to those driving on Northern Boulevard for its Vespa continuously parked on the sidewalk, Marco can now continue to grow his expanding fan base of local diners and those looking for a wonderful italian night out.

REVEL in Garden City may be one of Long Island’s newest additions, but even though it is just getting its feet wet in this North Shore community doesn’t mean that it lacks a serious culinary punch.

Inatome in Valley Stream – Revisited

When we last visited Valley Stream’s favorite hibachi restaurant, Inatome, they were a few days away from their re-opening. Stricken by a fire on Halloween three years ago, they rebuilt better than ever. Although we had an exclusive photo tour of the restaurant, we needed to return to actually experience the food; and what a wonderful meal it was.

PLANCHA Tapas and Wine Bar in Garden City

When we saw that PLANCHA, a new Tapas and Wine Bar was opening up in Garden City, our intuition told us that Josh, Jonathan and Lily, the trio behind one of our favorite spots on the South Shore, Salumi, in Massapequa, were behind this new spot. Our suspicions were confirmed and with that knowledge in our hands, we knew that diners were in for something special on the North Shore.

Sunday Brunch of the Week on Long Island: Grillfire in Merrick

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.
