Red Fish Grille may not be as known as it should be, perhaps because it is attached to a strip of stores and is not a stand alone restaurant, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not serving top-notch seafood and other dishes to the Plainview crowd.
MP Taverna in Roslyn is a rarity on Long Island. It’s helmed by owner/chef Michael Psilakis, a heavyweight in the international scene. He’s amassed a Michelin star, a James Beard Award nomination and he can be seen on various television series regularly airing (including Iron Chef). It’s a wonderful thing that he has planted MP Taverna, his take on a modern Greek bistro, right here in our own backyard.
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.
Great Neck is filled with culinary delights for every budget. While it may be an expensive town to live and play in, it doesn’t always have to be so expensive to eat (although it can be that, too). We’ve compiled a few restaurants that we’ve spoken about on FiOS1 Long Island’s Restaurant Hunter for our readers to check out and enjoy.
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.
Being a great seafood restaurant would be enough for most establishments, but being one of the largest seafood markets in the area as well is taking Southside Fish and Clam to another level. The abundance of seafood pouring through these doors daily is helping to keep prices low and quality way up.
Real Jewish delis are hard to come by these days. As Wally Goetz, the owner of Lido Kosher Deli will tell you, it’s a dying breed. Lido Kosher Deli is a hub of activity on the south shore. During our lunchtime visit there were streams of people coming in to take out and sit down at one of the best on the island.
Riverbay, a long-time mainstay and fixture on Willis Avenue in Williston Park has served its last dish. Closing to make way for a new bank location, this Poll family owned restaurant and building will not be pleasing diners any longer.
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.
Little Sweet Jamaica is a diamond in the rough. Owned by sisters who started in Jamaica working in restaurants and eventually made their way out to New York, this is a local spot that is cheap on price and extravagant on flavor.
