A greasy spoon joint gets a facelift in Huntington, Northport receives a modern American gastropub and there’s a new resident at the 125-year-old home on Hillside Avenue in Williston Park
The Seven Quarts Tavern, an upscale, modern American gastro pub at 688 Fort Salonga Road in Northport had its grand opening on Sept 30. It replaces the steakhouse J. Michaels. The 102-seat restaurant serves shared plates and entrées, draft beer and a 50-bottle wine list.
Sandbar opened in October at 55 Main Street in Cold Spring Harbor, specializing in American comfort food. Guy Reuge, who is the corporate executive chef of the Lessing Group, will be the new restaurant’s kitchen commander while continuing to work at Mirabelle in Stony Brook.
The Golden Dolphin at 565 Main Street in Huntington opened after extensive renovations and extensions. This diner offers a traditional greasy spoon experience in all its glory—albeit less greasy now—including large portions at modest prices.
Copperhill has replaced La Marmite, the 41-year-old operation at 234 Hillside Avenue in Williston Park. The new restaurant is switching from continental to modern American cuisine. It maintains a contemporary farmhouse aesthetic, occupying a home that’s stood for 125 years.
Chef Paul Miranda and partner Stu Kritz recently opened True North Restaurant on 54 New Street in Huntington where Vitae used to operate. This gastropub will feature eclectic American dining and spotlight craft beer.
