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.
For those of us who have been patiently waiting for the new Buffalo Wild Wings in Westbury to open, our wait is coming to a close. Occupying the space that previously held Mirage Nightclub and then most recently GLO, this new Buffalo Wild Wings is going to be massive and probably won’t disappoint, when they open on March 16th.
Vincent’s Clam Bar in Carle Place is a treat for those who love festive atmospheres, homemade food, large portions and friendly staff. We’ve been coming here for years and with good reason; it’s affordable, fun and yummy.
On this week’s Restaurant Hunter on FiOS1 Long Island, host Rob Petrone and East of NYC’s Publisher, Mark Levine took you on a tour of some of the best Southern Eats across the island. We’ve compiled Mark’s talking points along with supporting pictures of some great BBQ spots that you should definitely visit.
bee-ORGANIC is a calming experience just steps from the busy Great Neck Village. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, they’re serving a unique clientele; one that is looking for vegetarian, organic and wholesome options.
Among the many restaurants that are in Rockville Centre sits its newest shining star, Kashi Japanese. A sister-restaurant to their other busy location on the north shore’s equivalent to Rockville Centre, Huntington Village (both with busy village atmospheres), Kashi will make you feel blue, but not in the way that you might be thinking.
The Post Office Cafe sits on historic West Main Street in Babylon just waiting for you to come in. It’s a building steeped in history; originally used as a post office and now a well known eatery and bar that is most popular after work and on the weekends. The Lessing family has poured their hearts and souls into this establishment and it’s only getting more popular through the years.
Chef Brian Fugit is now at the helm of Horace & Sylvia’s in Babylon, an establishment that boasts a wonderful bar scene and great food as well. With 18 beers on tap (and local offerings such as Blue Point, etc.) they’ve recently been delving into a once per month “Beer Dinner” to pair up some cuisine with tasty brew.
Italian cuisine, Frank Sinatra on the sound system and way oversized portions are the hallmark of both of the Ciao Baby locations on the island. While Massapequa, on the south shore, is home to one location, we hit their north shore Commack location to be treated to some of their interesting menu items.
Chef Eric Lomando is one of the reasons that St. James is known as having some of the best restaurants on Long Island. His dedication to technique, ingredients and service is well documented. With two restaurants located in the small town (Kitchen A Bistro is the other), he’s upped the ante for any restaurateurs looking to get into the game and has created a reason for many residents to drive far distances for some of his fresh cuisine. With Kitchen A Trattoria, Chef Lomando is crafting seasonal italian dishes for all to enjoy.
