Maragarita’s Cafe in East Meadow

For years, Margarita’s Cafe in East Meadow (in the East Meadow Bowl shopping center) has been a staple of our dining experiences. Many people who live within a 5-10 minute range of this restaurant / bar don’t know that it is there, and that’s not such a bad thing. On weekend nights the wait for a table can top an hour; but at least the great bar is there to pop out an endless supply of margaritas and other drinks while you wait.

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.

Just south of Atlantic Avenue and on the way to the Nautical Mile lies Bagel Dock and Cafe, a local bagel shop that through thick and thin has survived to stay open and provide those heading to the open waters (and to work) with freshly baked bagels, muffins, salads and more.

Pete’s Pitaria in Island Park

Pete’s Pitaria is one of those restaurants that has been around on Long Island forever. As the name would suggest, they have loads of pita breads that are served daily and with that, healthy skewered combinations with hummus and Greek salads are coming off the line daily.

Margarita Grille in Westhampton Beach

With summer winding down we’re only a few weeks away from a quiet trip out east and a return to normalcy in the Hamptons. The village of Westhampton Beach, Main Street, especially, is a great spot to walk around, grab a bite to eat and explore. We stopped by Margarita Grilled recently for a mid-day lunch, sat outside on their deck and watched as pedestrians passed by.

Photo Tour: Queen City Cupcakes in Patchogue

Back in Patchogue’s heyday, Patchogue was known as the Queen City. It was a popular destination for shops, restaurants and hotels alike. Keeping that moniker alive today is Queen City Cupcakes, pulling double duty as a store for home-wares and a bakery with exquisite desserts. We stopped inside to snap some photos to let our readers see some of their wonderful wares and sweet offerings.

An award-winning Colombian / Latin American restaurant is hiding in plain sight right there in Valley Stream, on Nassau County’s south shore. Located on Rockaway Avenue, Chicken Coop may not have any chickens running wild inside a wire cage, but they’re serving up some tasty cuisine from another part of this world.
