PeraBell in Riverhead - Very good

OK, clearly a Riverhead taco crawl is in the cards.

Las Mexicanas Tacos?? Details please! I liked the tacos at Cielito Lindo across from Star. (Not to mention Taqueria Mexico up the road.) How does this place compare? Thanks.

Visiting Oyster Bay, where to get lunch?

Nope, Huntington closed; Oyster Bay still open.

The sandwich place is Dugan's and it's still there:

Visiting Oyster Bay, where to get lunch?

My number one pick in Oyster Bay is Canterbury Ales. Lots of TR memorabilia there and good, simple pub food. Oyster Bay Fish and Clam is a good place for simple seafood. Have heard good things about Jack Halyards but I'd probably still go to Canterbury Ales. BUT, why not just head to Hicksville for lunch? Have you been to House of Dosas? There's also a new place that I've been to once and was very impressed: Papee da Dhaba, serving Punjabi food: http://www.newsday.com/lifestyle/rest...

Cake Sized Black and White Cookie - Eastern Nassau or Western Suffolk County

They're only 4 inches across, but very good. And who knows they might make bigger ones...

Top Long Island restaurants of 2015: Eat here now - Newsday

Have you had the pizza?

Top Long Island restaurants of 2015: Eat here now - Newsday

Hello! The link was being, um, serviced this evening and should be fixed now. As for omissions, all I can say is that there are 100 restaurants on the list, but only 10 in each category--and some of those categories are very competitive. Reasonable people can disagree, as Chowhound proves every day. Unrelatedly, anyone been to Boccone Pizzeria in Selden?

Oriental Grocery in Lake Grove/Stonybrook...gone?

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

Oriental Grocery in Lake Grove/Stonybrook...gone?

There are two other Asian markets in Stony Brook, University Asian Market and Stony Asian Mart. Neither is as large as Oriental Grocery. Asian One Best is fantastic and is probably the most pan-Asian of all since owners are Filipino.

Omakase in Nassau County?

Great! Please report back.

Oriental Grocery in Lake Grove/Stonybrook...gone?

Please PLEASE, will you area hounds keep your eyes on this? If this place closes I will be bereft! (If I were out there I'd ask the other Chinese tenants of that shopping center what they know; there's Tao's and another takeout place, no?)

What's good near Nesconset Highway?

Excellent to know. But it was whole, on the bone?

Omakase in Nassau County?

Taka in Westbury, Nagashima in Jericho, Koiso in Carle Place. All excellent if you communicate to the chef (in all cases, Japanese and the owner) that you are serious.

Local farm and seafood delivery service in Nassau & Suffolk

Based on my recollections of your posts on this board, you're usually right, right? (Share with spouse.)

What's good near Nesconset Highway?

You're in a great corridor for authentic Chinese food. In Stony Brook: Ten89 Noodle House, Red Tiger, Green Tea and Tao's Bakery / Dim Sum (mostly takeout). Good, local wild-caught seafood served whole: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Local farm and seafood delivery service in Nassau & Suffolk

Well of course you're right. We'll see how these businesses do in the long run.

The prices may be higher than buying directly from East End farm stands, but not from farmers markets. Right now Our Harvest is selling Briermere strawberries for $7.29/quart, which is comparable to what I pay at my local Brooklyn green market. The bottom line is that someone needs to pay for transportation--the farmer, the customer, or the middleman.

I wrote about OurHarvest last year; I really liked them: http://nwsdy.li/1Gn3TAS

More recently, we profiled a four farm-to-kitchen businesses with similar models: http://nwsdy.li/1FcuGol

GREENPORT: JB WINES....SCARY

Good for the winery. And thanks for the warning!

Jarred Kimchi on Long Island?

You buried the lede!!!

GREENPORT: JB WINES....SCARY

It's a longshot, but you might try to contact the winery. They're certainly not obligated to help you out, but they might want to do so. Who knows?

Organic Salads [Port Washington, L. I.]

Oh dear. Then it's official: Trust no one!

Organic Salads [Port Washington, L. I.]

I would also trust Whole Foods. Good thinking, @stuartlafonda

Organic Salads [Port Washington, L. I.]

I would not trust any restaurant that claims to serve organic produce unless they show me the labels--especially if this is a health issue. If your friend is serious about eating only organic produce and meat, he or she is going to have to buy her own food and cook it. There's actually a restaurant in Port Washington called Organico that claims to serve only organic but, again, I would ask to see the labels, boxes, cartons, etc. If they won't show you, then there's your answer.

North Fork strawberries

I bought some lovely strawberries at Patty's on Saturday.

Greenport

One great newish place in Greenport is Little Creek Oyster Market, right on the water between Claudio's and Mitchell Park, they teach you to shuck your own oysters and clams.

Mother's day brunch in Great Neck, LI area

Well remembered

Here's an article I wrote a few years back about GrK--which you, Gastronomos, will not be able to read!

Gastronomos! Only a fraction of what we report on the blog winds up in the paper. Seriously. Like 10 percent.
I do dine in Brooklyn occasionally.
