Michael Turner and Brian Shuren oversee all aspects of the operation at Bistro 25, a casual and refined bistro located in Sayville, on Long Island’s south shore. With an interior on the smaller side, the bistro packs as much flavor and creativeness into its dishes as they do diners on any weekend night. We hit them up on a quiet weekday at lunchtime to take in the vibe and capture the essence of their culinary magic.
Cafe Joelle, located on Main Street in beautiful Sayville, has been a shining star in the area since the 1990’s when it opened. It continues to draw locals who are looking for a quaint atmosphere and a quality meal at an affordable price.
Blackbirds’ Grille may be off of the Main Street area of Sayville, but the two-minute drive to get there from the main district shouldn’t turn you off. There is plenty of parking, plenty of dining choices and a local vibe that is second to none.
Sayville is a great area with a Main Street that really throws us back in time. Surrounded by all of the great restaurants and shops lining the street is the relative newcomer, Downtown Burger at Five Points Cafe. Since February, 2011, Downtown Burger has proven to be the go-to spot for those carnivorous cravings.
There’s something about the name “Tullulah” that attracts us. Maybe it whispers of something sultry and Southern, or perhaps it reminds us of that plucky character Towanda from the movie Fried Green Tomatoes. Whatever it may be, we wanted to eat at The Eatery at Tullulah’s in Bay Shore the minute we were told about its interesting food and affordable BYOB policy.
