Sayville is a great area with a Main Street that really throws us back in time. Surrounded by all of the great restaurants and shops lining the street is the relative newcomer, Downtown Burger at Five Points Cafe. Since February, 2011, Downtown Burger has proven to be the go-to spot for those carnivorous cravings.
With summer season in the Hamptons out in full swing now, Montauk is not only “The End”, but it is quickly becoming a culinary destination all of its own. Inlet Seafood Restaurant is just one of many hot spots out on the east end, and for us, it’s one of the best that we have yet encountered.
New for 2012 is The Bamboo Bar and Grill on the Nautical Mile in Freeport. We stopped by this past weekend before their busy lunch and afternoon rush to relax on their outdoor sand-covered dining area overlooking the calm waters and the marina.
The Patio, which burst onto the scene last year and catered to those Long Islanders who love to eat and drink on the water, is reopening for the season this Thursday, April 12th. Located in the Freeport Inn and Marine, the restaurant and bar features an outdoor lounge area, a bar that opens its doors to the outside and a great food menu that will be sure to be even more popular this year as more people learn about it.
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.)
