Sometimes you need a local deli / catering operation to get you through the day. If you’re near Rockville Centre, then you probably are aware of Bialystok & Bloom on Clinton Avenue, a local spot that has outlasted many restaurants that have come and gone.
Stopping by on a whim, in the dead of winter, to The Frisky Oyster in Greenport was as unexpected for us as it was for them. The beloved Greenport restaurant is a mainstay in the sleepy North Fork village and Owner / Chef Robby Beaver, at the helm since 2010, has been the most recent curator of this wonderful location.
PRIME American Kitchen and Bar in Huntington is one of those restaurants on Long Island that not only has that “wow” factor, but it also lives up to the hype with their wonderful cuisine served with a side of an even better view.
While we didn’t see any food during our visit to Ruvo in Port Jefferson, we still wanted to take our readers on an exterior and interior tour of this revered italian eatery on the north shore. Located almost waterfront, Ruvo is an italian eatery curated by the same ownership as their other location in Greenlawn, La Tavola in Sayville and Del Fuego in St. James. The open atrium, bright colors and bar area certainly holds the key to any type of dining experience.
Pizza is an institution on Long Island and throughout the country we’re known as having some of the best-tasting options around. We’ve scoured through Long Island’s pizza scene to bring you four of our favorites; a variety of options no matter where you are located.
Almost a week never goes by when we’re not stopping by our favorite hometown deli. Smith Street Deli is the neighborhood go-to spot for all phases of the day; they’ve got breakfast, lunch and dinner covered. So, if you’re ever in the Merrick area, this is one casual spot that you can’t afford to miss.
Award winning, romantic, adventurous and revered are all ways that we can describe Restaurant Mirabelle, located inside the Three Village Inn in Stony Brook. Chef Guy Reuge has been the driving force behind Restaurant Mirabelle over the past years and this French cuisine juggernaut is always a formidable contender for Long Island’s best restaurant. We stopped by the restaurant for a quick photo shoot to capture what so many love.
When we first posted about Shake Shack’s opening (it’s today!), we promised that we would have some pictures for our readers to get a first look. We visited their pre-opening trial and our camera was with us the entire way.
We stopped by Grey Horse Tavern not so long ago to do a feature with FiOS1 Long Island and Restaurant Hunter on their brunch favorites as well as to see what makes this restaurant so unique. The now copper bar area actually played host to a live horse, drinking from the restaurant’s provisions. Things may have changed in the last 100 years or so at this continually operating tavern and restaurant, but this Bayport institution is still every bit as impressive and praiseworthy for its culinary goodness. To take a photographic tour of our visit, click on through the jump.
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.
