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.
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.
