Please tell me those are not ribs topped with shrimp with a steamed vegetable medley.

The Best Egg Sandwich... on Long Island - Southdown Coffee in Huntington

I know what you mean! I long for the days when I thrilled to Cafe Bustelo.

The Best Egg Sandwich... on Long Island - Southdown Coffee in Huntington

Thanks! And, Gastronomos, the coffee at Southdown Coffee is of very high quality:

That's odd. Edible Long Island posted that on their FB page but, you're right, the link is no longer working. Perhaps it was too enthusiastic to live?

Flamenco or Marriachi (live) with dinner on Long Island

Joan Reminick reported this article, "Latin restaurants serving up dance," two years ago, and at least one of the restaurants mentioned have closed, but it's a start:

The Refuge Rt 110, Melville

We haven't eaten there, but here's some more information. Report back!

ISO Peconic BayScallops 2014

So by my calculations you had fried blowfish, sauteed scallops, fried flounder?, grilled tuna. And I want to know...you couldn't fry the tuna? Looks fantastic. Good on you!

The new Mesquite Tex Mex in Wading River, we totally love it

OK. I am writing that down! Sometimes I think that those North Shore Suffolk towns--Wading River, Sound Beach--just cease to exist, Brigadoon-style, from Monday to Wednesday!

I've never been able to find the Sound Beach location open!

How much more info do you want?

Need Northport Recs.

Motosport, where'd you end up?

Need Northport Recs.

Not to confuse matters, but highly recommended in nearby Greenlawn (though sadly lacking in oysters) is Old Fields.

Need Northport Recs.

Congratulations! Great food not so easy in Northport. I think Coll is referring to Mill Pond House, gorgeously situated, food not quite up to the view since chef Antonato departed. There's Rockin Fish, more casual, probably mobbed on a Friday night, but specializing in oysters so there's that...

Peruvian Chicken in Patchouge

I think it's Los Andes, branch of a well-regarded Peruvian in Deer Park. Details:

Caci in Southold??? Anyone been??

Rehearsal Dinner for 30-40 Babylon area

Three restaurants come to mind, all owned by Bohlsen restaurant group, all large and well appointed, well equipped to handle a party, none of them cheap: Monsoon in Babylon is modern Asian fusion, Tellers in Islip lovely steakhouse in old bank building, Verace in Islip modern Italian.

I wouldn't call ten days from now plenty of time but can you give an idea of your budget, needs (private room?) and taste in terms of cuisine?

Lunch spot on North Fork this coming Friday

As far as I know, Taylor Knapp is still at the helm at First & South...

Long Island Gyros

Doesn't a real gyro use a column of actual pieces of meat, stacked on top of one another and not a log? Gastronomos?

Lombardi's comes to Mattituck

Good pizza in Greenport at 1943 Pizza Bar, though the off-season hours may be a bit hinky...

Lombardi's comes to Mattituck

The place is lovely and lively. Not as rarified as Love Lane Market was under Mike Avella, but offering everything a good Long Island Italian grocer should, including fresh mozzarella made every morning.

Looking for really good food for Kings Point parents weekend

Let us know how it goes. Also recommended in Great Neck: Kensington Deli, real, old-school kosher-style deli.

Looking for really good food for Kings Point parents weekend

It's Long Island. Portions are never small. Lola has small plates but also plenty of regular-sized entrees and one fantastic Hudson Valley whole duck for two with cabbage, Brussels sprouts and truffled polenta which you can also have topped with foie gras. (Restaurant owner also owns Hudson Valley Foie Gras.)

Mid-day train to Georgia?

Mastic recs

Coll, what exactly at Frank's is as good as in the city? Thanks.

HELP!!!! Does anyone know where I can get great TEX-MEX? [Long Island]

I'm confused, Hungryman8. The list of sins committed by Long Island restaurants is long, but it does *not* include Americanized "Mexican" restaurants failing to deploy vast quantities of whole-milk cheese and full-fat sour cream. Which specific places have you been to where they skimped on fake cheese?

It's ALL Greek to me in Nassau County and Western Suffolk

I truly am curious to hear what you think! Fingers crossed (for all of us)!

It's ALL Greek to me in Nassau County and Western Suffolk

Gastronomos, my failure to personally alert you should not be taken as a reflection on Nissos. I confess that I have yet to understand exactly what it is you are looking for in a Greek restaurant, but based on my visit on the very first day it was open, it looked serious about fresh whole fish and other simple, non-Americanized Greek standards. No gyro, no lettuce in the horiatiki, etc. It's no Onera--but then again there aren't too many Oneras in Greece...

East End ...local whitefish?

Aha! Both menus list "white fish," not "whitefish," so it very well might be a generic term for whatever, well, white fish they have on that day. Why not get the server to ask the chef?
