Now that summer season is upon us, Montauk will soon be waking up from its winter slumber and droves of Long Islanders will be heading out east to “The End” to relax and take advantage of the weather and the location. One of the spots that is great for a cheap and quick bite is Sausages Pizza & Pastabilities, located on Montauk Hwy.
Back in the day (mid-90’s) Caruso’s Pizza was the place to go for those kids growing up in the Plainview area. A lot has changed since that time. Waldbaums, the anchor store back then has transitioned to Fairway Market and Caruso’s is now known as Umberto’s Pizza of Plainview. Upon a recent visit we saw that although the name may have changed, the great pizza hasn’t.
Rustica Brick Oven Cafe in Garden City South is known for having amazing pizza, but they’re also heating things up with their Gluten Free menu; which includes a variety of pasta dishes and traditional italian favorites. Located on Nassau Boulevard, Rustica is changing the landscape of healthier, gluten free restaurants on the island and are catering to a whole section of diners who are diet restricted (all diners can enjoy their gluten-free options as they haven’t lost any of their taste). We stopped by to say hello and to photograph (and taste) some of their best dishes.
San Marzano, the intensely popular brick oven pizza joint on Merrick Avenue in Merrick will be temporarily closing its doors on August 12th to make way for a new and improved spot.
St. James is our favorite dining destination on the island for one reason; it’s a small hamlet located in the Town of Smithtown, but in its tiny footprint lays a veritable treasure trove of amazing restaurants in every price range. This is worth a day trip to experience the variety of cuisines as well as the talented chefs that are carving their way through Suffolk. We’ve hit up a few of our favorites to show our readers what lies in waiting for you once you make the trip out.
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.
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.
Port Jefferson Station may not have the waterfront dining options that Port Jefferson has, but that doesn’t mean that we should leave them out in the cold and not visit. We’ve scoured the area and came up with a few great dining options for our readers to visit and experience for a wonderful dining day in Suffolk County.
When Sacramone’s originally opened in 1989 at their Queens location, they probably never could have imagined that almost 25 years later they’d still be going strong and opening up another location on Long Island.
