Riverbay, a long-time mainstay and fixture on Willis Avenue in Williston Park has served its last dish. Closing to make way for a new bank location, this Poll family owned restaurant and building will not be pleasing diners any longer.
Williston Park on Nassau County’s north shore doesn’t have to be very expensive to fulfill your dining needs. A quaint area of the island, it harkens back to an era when times were simpler and family and food were the only two thing to worry about. If you’re looking to sample a few of their best establishments at a few different price points, look no further.
On more than one occasion we’ve found ourselves wandering around the north shore of Nassau County and in the mood for thai. When that mood strikes us, we tend to always end up at SriPriPhai, in Williston Park. An offshoot to their other popular location in Woodside, Queens, this location is a bit larger, brighter and newer. We took a trip there not too long ago to capture some of their decor and dishes for our audience to see.
With so many new restaurants popping up across Long Island, it’s easy to forget those restaurants with a rich history of serving Long Islanders for nearly a century. Hildebrandt’s in Williston Park is one such restaurant that has served many generations of families and their commitment to serving quality food and reasonable prices cannot be overlooked.
The last time we ran into the Cupcake Contessas was way back in January of 2009. At that time they were located in Huntington and were nice enough to send us over some samples to enjoy. Now with their own shop in Willison Park, we were in the area for a recent television shoot and by stroke of luck, their new shop was located just next door.
