5,400 square feet of Asian cuisine await at Ginza, one of the newest hot spots to open up on the south shore this year. The redesigned space, formerly a Sizzler Steakhouse in Massapequa, is a trendy haven for sushi lovers and interior design lovers alike.
It’s been quite the year for La Bottega in Merrick. They went from having one store, to taking over their next door neighbor and expanding to completely closing within the span of a few months. Well, now we have a better idea of what is happening over at that street-level spot.
Here’s an opening that we’re glad to see; Stew Leonard’s Wine and Spirits in Carle Place. Taking over the space that used to house an athletics store, there’s plenty of room to shop and the vast space is filled with choices. The second of their locations on Long Island (Farmingdale is the other), Stew Leonard’s will provide an affordable and painless shopping experience for those adult libations that you’ve been craving. Wines are sorted by type and by region as well and clearly marked so you can’t get lost.
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.
