Margarita’s Cafe on Front Street in East Meadow has to be one of our favorite Mexican restaurants on Long Island. It’s a continually festive atmosphere with nightly lines out the doors. If you’re thinking of going there on a weekend night, reservations are an absolute must. Come January 20th the lines may get a little bit easier when their newest (and 3rd overall) location opens on Wantagh Avenue in Wantagh.
Today marks St. Patrick’s Day and what better way to ring that in than to focus on one of the island’s best watering holes that also serves great food; Corry’s Ale House, located in Wantagh.
On this week’s Restaurant Hunter on FiOS1 Long Island, host Rob Petrone and East of NYC’s Publisher, Mark Levine took you on a tour of some of the best Southern Eats across the island. We’ve compiled Mark’s talking points along with supporting pictures of some great BBQ spots that you should definitely visit.
**Update: This location is closed**
Trattachino recently opened up in Wantagh in late January, and to our pleasant surprise was rocking the night away this past Saturday night. We happened to show up early and it was relatively empty during those first few minutes of dinner service. Leaving the restaurant was a different story; it was packed and everyone seemed to be having an excellent time with the wine and the food flowing. We sat down and immediately started ordering a bevy of items on this small plates / sharing New American menu. To view some of our guilty pleasures, keep on reading past the break.
