Two years ago Bobby Flay opened up Bobby’s Burger Palace in the Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove. We’re not sure what his thinking was on the location choice, since he spends most of his time in NYC (Roosevelt Field or even Walt Whitman malls would’ve been closer), but one thing is for sure; he’s bringing a unique flavor to Suffolk County with this burger dominated menu.
Page at 63 Main in Sag Harbor has opened in an historic building dating back to the 1890’s. The restaurant is still standing on its original foundation and there are a lot of original details as well, lending to a unique dining experience.
Workday lunches need to be quick, affordable and of high quality. With that in mind, we are taking you over to Dugan’s Sandwich Shop in Woodbury. Nestled in a bustling shopping center on Jericho Tpke., this sandwich shop caters to those who would like to stay and eat in-store or order for take out and go. There’s a large assortment of sandwiches, heroes, salads and more; freshly made in front of you. The sandwiches are stacked with great ingredients and the swollen hero buns should leave you held over until dinnertime.
One meal that never goes out of style is breakfast. There’s something about the rich flavors of waffles topped with whipped cream, or pancakes topped with fresh fruits that really sets the day up right. On a constant quest for the perfect breakfast spot on Long Island, JT’s Corner Cafe is just what Suffolk County ordered.
We just caught wind that XO Wine and Chocolate Bar, located directly next to Classy Coffee in the Village of Huntington, suffered a fire that destroyed its kitchen on Wednesday, April 20th. We don’t know how long the wine bar will be affected and out of service, but we’ll send out an update once they are back up and running.
Here’s to a speedy recovery.
Four Food Studio opened up their doors around 2004-2005. When they arrived on the scene they practically kick-started a new way of dining on Long Island. We hadn’t seen anything like it before and now there may be a few restaurants that are trying to compete, but Four always comes out on top.
Update: This location is closed
When we announced the opening of Restaurant Anise a few weeks back, we knew that we hit on something within a few hours. Our twitter feed, hitting the timelines of many users, took to our announcement and at least one follower moved on in for their lunchtime serving on the same day. Needless to say, they were impressed.
Crumbs is a wonderful little bakery (ok, maybe not so little) that has its origins in that island west of Long Island, Manhattan. Expanding its brand over the past few years, they made their move to Long Island and parts east about three years ago (Huntington and Woodbury came first) and the cupcakes are not only delicious, but they are rather expensive (for Long Island’s standards). We stopped by a little while ago to bother the staff and to snap some shots of their shop and their cupcakes (they have coffee, too!) To whet your appetite, jump on through.
This week’s street level selection comes in the form of Swallow, a small plates restaurant that opened in the village of Huntington in October, 2010.
Update: This location is now closed. Easy come, easy go.
Chef Michael Ginor, a superstar in both Great Neck (TLV and LOLA among his most recent projects) and points further out is expanding his culinary reach on the North Shore with the opening of Restaurant Anise, a pan-Mediterranean establishment. Two weeks into their new life, Anise is picking up buzz and customers with its Hoomoos, kabobs, fresh seafood and falafels.
