32 Star — Montauk

32 Star is located within Gurney’s Montauk Yacht Club, which apparently is a very recent endeavor. The restaurant replaced the previous restaurant there called Coast Kitchen, and supposedly 32 Star is also a temporary visitor at the location. Nonetheless, we hit the restaurant on none other than my birthday. Gurney’s Yacht Club is generally a…

Wild Honey – Oyster Bay

Wild Honey is located on the Main Street of the historical region of Oyster Bay. The building is quite pleasant and the entry is inviting. There is sidewalk seating in rustic wooden chairs. The interior is pleasant, but admittedly very dark. Although not very evident in the photos, I felt as though it was so…

One North – Jericho

I heard of One North, but I was not expecting much — maybe a nice, small, and modern Mediterranean joint. I had never passed it or seen it, despite driving around this area constantly. However, upon arrival, I was pleasantly surprised and the place immediately exceeded my expectations. One North is tucked away in a…

City Cellar – Westbury

City Cellar is a phenomenal American restaurant in Westbury. It is very NYC-style, and the place itself looks beautiful and classy. The decor of the entire restaurant is very tasteful, with attention to detail and dim lighting. The size of the restaurant is quite big, but it gets packed quickly for dinner. The prices can…

Kisoro Asian Sushi – Carle Place

Kisoro is in a plaza near Roosevelt Field Mall, making it a convenient spot to eat after shopping. I am always initially and naturally skeptical of a new sushi restaurant, unless I have heard many raving reviews. I have never heard of Kisoro, but I soon learned that it was relatively new, opening approximately four…

Kotobuki – Roslyn

Kotobuki is considered an amazing place to go for sushi on Long Island, and I can’t say I disagree. It’s often very crowded, especially peak hours on weekends, but I could see the appeal. At first, Kotobuki looks like any regular sushi restaurant. The interior is very minimalistic, and almost too compact. It can be…

Super Bowls – Syosset

It’s quite a travesty that I haven’t reviewed Super Bowls yet, considering I’ve been to this eatery more times than I’d like to admit since their opening in Syosset. When I first heard of the renowned “acai bowl,” I was very skeptical. Sure, perhaps the bowl is visually appealing. But after all, the bowl is…

The Refuge – Melville

I’ve passed The Refuge a million times, but never thought much of it. However, The Refuge is an incredible restaurant on Long Island. It’s very trendy, well-designed, and the food is superb. It is definitely a “scene,” such that it is filled with people dressed nicely at the bar and co-workers or friends hanging out…

Cipollini – Manhasset

Cipollini is located as part of the luxurious Americana Manhasset shopping plaza, that has every store from Gucci to Tory Burch to Brooks Brothers. Cipollini has nice outdoor seating that is perfect on a summer’s day, and they tended to be very crowded on Father’s Day. The interior seating is also nice, and the whole…

Lisbon Cafe – Jericho

Right off of Jericho Turnpike is a restaurant that I probably would’ve never ended up going to if it hadn’t been for a recommendation from our family friends. However, I am extremely happy to have gone to this restaurant as it had some of the best lobster I have ever had. Lisbon Cafe is a…

Pier 95 – Freeport

I’ve only been to Freeport a couple of times in my life, but nothing quite screams “Long Island Summer” like Freeport. However, this restaurant — Pier 95 — right outside of the Nautical Mile, didn’t quite strike the right chord with me… The Nautical Mile, nearby, is AMAZING! It’s full of so much life, energy, and…

Ocean – Bayville

Guess where this restaurant is located? If you guessed by the ocean, you are most definitely the next Sherlock Holmes. This restaurant is located right by my all-time favorite restaruant, Wall’s Wharf, and so it was most definitely interesting to see how this one would compare. The overall place is beautiful. Ocean is a restaurant…
