Greetings. We're doing a long weekend (Sunday - Tuesday) on the North Fork. Going to stay at Shinn Estate Vineyards.

I'm looking for lunch and dinner recommendations between Paumanok (Abueboque) and Greenport. I know this is the BYO thread, so bonus points for establishments that allow this. Restaurants can be casual or fancy. It's our anniversary.

My other question is will the North Fork be dead in early November?

Thank you.

The Gristmill in East Rockaway. No charge for BYO for now. Ambitious menu. Informal Italian-Continental.

Work in progress. Servers looked like they were in high school or college, so gave us coffee that had sat too long instead of making new pot. Almost gave us orders for another table. Desert of the day, oreo cheesecake was great. Everything else was too heavily salted for our taste.

Louie's in Port Washington corkage is $25. Stems are mediocre, BTG pours (based on observations of other tables) are good sized. Food is decent. I was there for PW Restaurant Week, which was a bargain. Regular menu not so much, you're paying for the view.

Patrizia's in Hicksville. They do not allow corkage. But my educated guess is they have decent wine at a reasonable price.

So did we. Bob the owner is a hoot. The food is delicious. As the menu states, or doesn't, the food is comfort food. Cost for 2 > $85.00 all-in.

Lola-Great Neck, on Middle Neck Road. Corkage is $20. Nice stems. Creative Middle Eastern menu with continental touches. Foie gras is a specialty. Roast duck, too. Upscale but informal. Restaurant week menu was a generous bargain.

Thai Thai Villa in Huntington. No charge to BYO. Stemless wine glasses. Informal atmosphere. We had duck roti app, stir fry egg noodle special and sweet and sour tofu. Wife cannot tolerate even a little pepper, so can't comment on spicy dishes. But our choices were very savory and not too sweet. Regular menu choices are mostly less than $20. Blackboard specials hover around $20.

Afghan Grill, on Hillside Avenue in New Hyde Park. No charge to BYO. Glasses are scarce so bring stems. Family run, store front restaurant for middle eastern kabobs and stews. We liked the charred, bone in Cornish hen, lamb stew with eggplant, large plate of seasoned basmati rice and cardamon spiced tea.

Chris & Tony's, Syosset. $35. Nice wine stems. Old school Italian, large portions served family style. Lots of garlic, a little too much salt. White tablecloths and attentive service. Many large groups on weekends. Can get loud.

We're going to be in Quogue next week. Any BYO suggestions between Hampton Bays and the Westhampton area?
Moderate prices restaurants appreciated. We're open to all food suggestions.
Bumping this because we're headed back to the area. I'm specifically looking for no or low corkage restaurants. Any restaurant will do.

If you're in the Hamptons, Stone Creek Inn is the place to go. Corkage is $35. They offer a set menu all Thursday night $35 for 2 courses. On Friday it's offered at the first seating. In Berserker-speak, it's a 100 points.

Thank you Diane Kessler for the recommendation. [cheers.gif]

I went to the (rebooted) Secrets of Flight restaurant in Port Washington during restaurant week. Corkage is $30, but we ended up ordering BTG from the small, but well chosen and reasonable, wine list. We both had the branzino off the RW menu, it was fresh and perfectly cooked, appetizers and dessert were excellent as well. I will be returning, and I hope they make it. It's a small restaurant and Port Washington is a tough restaurant town, but overall I think they are the best restaurant we have right now.

The small and cozy Basil Cafe in Saint James is a terrific Persian restaurant that is byo with no corkage charge. I brought a Riesling and Beaujolais that went well with assorted kebabs and grilled salmon. Service is extremely competent and very sweet.

I used to byo there when it first opened as Zar Cafe. Original owner was an architect and decorated the small room and outdoor patio himself. Glad to learn it's byo again.

In Nassau County, there are three byo no charge kebab restaurants I know about--

Miraj Healthy Grill in Williston Park--cook kebabs over charcoal, table cloths, nice atmosphere except for TV they added to front room, can get crowded weekends;
Kabul Grill in Westbury- yoghurt marinated chix kebab is moist, plain atmosphere, short wait weekends;
Afghan Grill in New Hyde Park-- home style cooking, friendly service, small but pleasant decor, no reservation needed.

Might want to bring cork screw and glasses when you visit.

Zar was a definite step above all three.

Asher, the only place I can think of, and it may not be what you are looking for, is Stella Ristorante in Floral Park. It has been around for over 50 years, and the menu probably hasn’t changed, but that is why I go. Corkage is $25ish.

Newsday just published a survey of wine stores on Long Island, and it's a good article. Among other things, she includes my favorite LI wine store (Village Wine Merchant in Sea Cliff) so obviously her judgment is beyond question. [wink.gif]

https://www.newsday.com/lifestyle/resta ... 1.38749402

I obviously agree with her summary of VWM, and she is also spot on with her reviews of Post, Total (I agree with her that their Italian and NYS sections are the highlight), and she was suitably diplomatic about Stew Leonards. I'm certainly interested in checking out the other stores she featured, though they are a bit far afield for me.

Newsday has emerged from the dark Tribune era to become the best it has been in years, possibly ever. All of their local coverage, not just food and restaurants, has become quite good as demonstrated by their recent piece on housing discrimination.

Any recommendations near or around Exit 57 off the LIE/Hauppauge area that will be open for Thanksgiving?
Not sure who is open nor BYO:

Mario (Italian)
Pace’s (Steakhouse)
Insignia (Steakhouse, and Sushi?)
Cirio’s (Italian)
Great! These works perfectly and 3 out of 4 are open. Pace's has free 1st bottle corkage fee. After 1st it is $25 with no bottle limit.
Let me know how it goes. Have eaten at 3 of 4 and they are good IMO (not Insignia).

When you say not Insignia, are you saying that you havent eaten there or Insigna is not good?

Haven’t been - sorry for the confusion .
Mario is old school and very good .
Ciros is a step down but still ok/good .

Enjoy whatever you do.
