Cipollini Pronto may be the sister-restaurant to Cipollini, located just next door (they even share a kitchen), but to those looking for a quick coffee or a bite to eat while shopping, this is the perfect spot to relax, refuel and get on with your day.
If we were asked what restaurant on Long Island closely resembled any cool restaurant in Brooklyn, we’d point them towards Barrique Kitchen and Wine Bar in the heart of Babylon Village. Rustic, with its bare wood beams on the ceiling, exposed brick and the familiar aged wood all around, Barrique opened in 2009 (by the same owners as the Argyle Grill & Tavern across the street) and has been a favorite spot on the south shore since.
The Heat Miser finally gave us a break, so we ventured outside to have lunch at Northport Feed & Grain. We’ve been meaning to visit this place for months since it’s one of the few restaurants in downtown Northport that offers outdoor seating and we’re all about al fresco dining anytime it gets above 60 degrees (and, in light of recent temps, under 100!). Not only was the setting charming, but the food was delicious.
With the weather warming up here on Long Island, this is a perfect time to beat the summer rush and hit a few of your favorite outdoor spots. Jordan’s Lobster Farm in Island Park may not be known to you, but we’ve been relying on their fresh lobster, clams and various other seafood offerings for quite some time. It’s affordable, outdoors and waterfront (there’s indoor seating, too.)
