Premium prices at Ben's Deli in Scarsdale

Be happy that you have a Ben's in Scarsdale. In Suffolk County, LI, we have Zan's. It seems that they lost their good cole slaw recipe.

The Orient Bethpage

Thanks dixdiner! $10 corkage is not bad.

A restaurant/caterer in the Farmingale (Long Island) that could accommodate a party of 20 or 30?

Try Tre Scalini in Farmingdale. One of my clients invited me to a holiday party there. The food was very good and from what I gather, so was pricing. We had a choice of 3 or 4 fixed dinners. The place is in the village of Farmingdale and it is on Main Street.

O'Mally's Southold Sold - How's it Now?

Motorsport, thanks for the info about Parto's. The restaurant is convenient, but as long as they use the same chef, I will not be going there. I particularly dislike the taste of the food. Nothing is too wrong with the menu or ambiance, as long as it does not get too hot in the summer in there.

Coll, I am looking forward to your review when the weather gets decent again.

Coll,

Has Parto's changed since they sold it?

I won't be eating in Riverhead until boating season begins.

Hy Ting -Riverhedad, NY - Classic Chinese American Chow

Went to Hy Ting with two other couples. There were two tables occupied and the waiter said to us that he could not take our order for a half hour. He said there was lots of takeout that he was working on. Maybe he was acting as the chef also? It was a place we really like and I feel that there is now one less place to go to in the Riverhead area. The North Fork is loaded with too many high priced restaurants opened by an executive chef who designs a fancy menu and then is gone, leaving behind a dysfunctional restaurant with poor service and exorbitant pricing.

The Orient Bethpage

I have been going to the Orient for about 20 years and it is really good. Too bad that you cannot get reservations. My favorite is the roast pork with fried noodles, dry.

It was great in the old days where you could bring your own bottle of wine or liquor. Now they have alcoholic beverage service and you can get a bottle of Tsingtao if you want one.

any good food recs for Monticello, Liberty NY

If you want good food in that part of the Catskills, you will need to get a time machine.

Those days are long gone. The customers have moved on. I used to like Singers Deli in Liberty (Chinese and Kosher style Deli) and the Antrim Lodge in Roscoe, great prime ribs.

Typekit

I do not have any browser extensions and very few add-ons, just symantec and skype. I am finding that Chowhounds site is very slow to respond. I am in Florida now. In NY it is fine. All the other websites that I connect to do it fast and crisply.

Typekit

Win 8.1 plus Firefox. I am still seeing it. It really takes a long time to load pages. All other pages from other websites load quickly. It is just at Chowhound that I get that message about loading typekit. I do not think it is worth using on your site, just to get some fancy fonts.

Is anyone out there getting very slow loads of Chow that say it is loading use.typekit.net and takes about 2-3 minutes? This posting is for the people at Chowhound. Please remove once addressed.

Cinquo de Mayo, Calverton, Long Island

Thanks for the update.

At 1.5 stars it does not sound cost effective at all. I will travel the extra miles and do Major's in East Meadow.

Long Island Good Eats 2014 in Review

Is that the former "Mah Johng" location?

Legal Seafood exits LI

I think that it was the same ownership as Nisen 110, which just closed. It may not have anything to do with the 'Legal' chain. The remaining Nisen 347 restaurant in St James has a totally un-readible sign, just like the previous two restaurants at that location. They last about a year each.

Special Occasion Recommendation - Nassau County/Western Suffolk

You should of addressed this issue with the restaurant manager. Sometimes there are just bad waiters, or over-worked waiters. There is no excuse for not getting your water, even in an inexpensive restaurant or pizzeria. In a more expensive restaurant, that deserves a "Pretentious" rating if they have high prices and crappy service. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Graduation dinner for Syracuse University

We did my daughters graduation from SU at the Arad Evans Inn in Fayetteville. Good food and service. A stately restaurant. One suggestion, book early.

Partos Pizza in Riverhead gets bought out by Uncle Joes

I am looking forward to the new menu, and possibly a new chef.

It has been a while since I went to Carlo's, but I will now keep it in mind.

Partos Pizza in Riverhead gets bought out by Uncle Joes

I ate at the "new" Partos last week. It is the same staff and the same food. Nothing has changed.

I was hoping for a new taste in the food.

Pressed Duck in Westchester?

On one of the Anthony Bourdain shows he traveled through Paris and stopped at a chef supply shop called Dehilleran's and purchased a duck press. I had been there 2 years ago. We thought that it was a terrific store. I really enjoyed seeing it on television. A duck press would be great to have, but it takes up a lot of space and you would only use it once a year.

Partos Pizza in Riverhead gets bought out by Uncle Joes

I checked "Two Brothers" website. They just put together a pizza, they do not cook it. You are supposed to take home a raw pizza and cook it yourself. Why bother?

Partos Pizza in Riverhead gets bought out by Uncle Joes

Does anyone know anything about "Two Brothers" at 49 East Main Street, Riverhead? Looks like a new pizza place coming in. They have a sign with the name of the business in the window, but they fail to mention what they do. Seems pretty stupid.

Long Island: Went to Chowder Bar and White Cap, any other places to try along Montauk Highway between Babylon and Patchogue?

In Patchogue I like Bobique for barbecue, the Brickhouse Brewery for pub grub and Gallo Restaurant for excellent chicken, Colombian style. I also like to taste beer at the Bluepoint Brewing Company.

Turkuaz in Riverhead

I was there last week and it was very hot and damp inside. I was told that the air conditioner was broken. They stopped making the delicious Turkish bread because the do not have their oven any more. The food is still good, but they seem to have other issues. Maybe someone's misplaced idea about cost control.

Partos Pizza in Riverhead gets bought out by Uncle Joes

Glad to hear the news. I never cared for the food at Parto's. Many of the items that I ate there seemed to have a sour taste. In the hot summer, the air conditioning was poor. I hope Uncle Joes is an improvement.

I also noticed that there is a place called Two Brothers under construction which I think may be a pizzeria. They do not say on the building under construction what it is. When Julia's changed to a Taqueria, there became a pizza vacuum in town. The pizza place next to the Blue Duck bakery closed and I did not feel bad, because one day I went in for a slice and they told me they did not sell slices. This was a poor business model for a pizza place. Not being able to get a slice allowed me to predict their future downfall.

Syracuse

My favorites are Danzer's, Coleman's, The Great Wall, Scotch and Sirloin, Saratoga Steaks, Delmonico's, The Egg Plant, Kitty Hoynes and Dinosaur. Many of these places have been around for a long time and there are many people who feel that they have slid downhill. I still like them.

Woodstock,NY where to eat?

I also like Joshua's Cafe. Great soups and salads. We have been going there for almost 50 years.

Lombardi's comes to Mattituck

Olive Garden is trying to figure out how to improve their menu. The report suggested that they add veal dishes, but management at Olive Garden did not know what kind of vegetable veal is. They are also trying to find a source for real mah-za-rella cheese.
