Blackstone is right down the road, or Prime up on the water in Huntington is always a good choice.

Planning on going Saturday night . Will call to find out current corkage policy (not listed on website ).
Still $20 .
Food is really good-highly recommended

Osteria Morini, whose flagship restaurant is in Soho, has a location in Roosevelt Field's "Restaurant Row". The food is primarily based on the cuisine of Emilia-Romagna, and portions are large. We're not dainty eaters, and sharing a pasta and a main course is plenty. Corkage is $25, with corkage waived on Wednesdays, but the Northern Italian centric wine list is exceptional by LI standards. There are many fine options available in the $40-60 price range.

The wine list is exceptional and one high end bottle I noticed is $75 less than current retail.

A rarity for any restaurant.

Nautilus, on the nautical mile in Freeport, is now $25. Terrific old school fish house. Nautical decor, linen tablecloths and napkins, servers in suits. Warm rolls, strong drinks, fresh fish, nicely charred steaks, too. Provided proper stems and a cold chiller for our white wine.

Still $25, and $5 Sunday. Still live music most nights.

Rialto Restaurant,Cale Place, charged us $30 corkage. As from the name, cozy two room Italian restaurant with atmosphere and cuisine reminiscent of Venice. We were impressed with the house made gnocchi in pesto sauce and the branzino fillet, nicely pan crusted. Warm bread, generous portions, good service. Family owned, with wife greeting everyone and husband in kitchen. A little loud on a busy Saturday. We'll try to go a different week night to enjoy the comfortable atmosphere a little more. A new favorite for us.
