H2O Seafood Grill in Smithtown is just one of many restaurants on Long Island owned and operated by the Bohlsen Restaurant Group, one of the premier groups in the area. Focusing on fresh seafood dishes in a wonderful atmosphere, H2O is doing for the north shore what Tellers and Monsoon are doing on the south shore.
With football season nearing its kickoff, we’ve been wondering where to hunker down on game days while in the vicinity of Huntington. With Rookies Sports Club we’ve found our spot.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Seven days a week, Babylon Bean Coffee House is open for your pleasure. If your pleasure is sitting and enjoying a delicious cup of coffee in an inviting atmosphere (with free wifi) or listening to live music on the weekend nights, this local spot is just for you.
In the heart of wine country, Love Lane in Mattituck is one of the best little Lanes on Long Island. The Village Cheese Shop is among the highly regarded shops, restaurants and markets on the little strip – one that anyone could walk within a few minutes. We stopped into The Village Cheese Shop to show our readers the shop and their best products; cheese. Continue on for our little photographic tour.
Stopping into The Bulldog Grille in Amityville not too long ago we were surprised that they were no longer a part of the Lessing’s family of restaurants (they had just been sold), but that didn’t deter us from hopping up to the bar, taking in some football, beer, wings and sliders.
