The Honey Pecan Grilled Chicken Salad
If the island ambiance has you in the mood for something a little lighter but no less delicious, go for the Honey Pecan Grilled Chicken Salad. It consists of mixed greens topped with chopped chicken breast, honey-roasted pecans, bleu cheese, tomatoes and dried cranberries. When you finally put the fork down, you’ll be surprised how satisfied you can be from eating a salad.
Come on, you didn’t think you’d leave without ordering a bucket of wings, right? Hurricane Grill & Wings offers more than 35 flavors and five levels of spice, ranging from calm seas to evacuation route, to please the faint of heart and daredevils alike. If someone could report back what the difference in spice is between the “Extra Hot” and “Ridiculously Hot,” that’d be awesome.
All the waterfront views Long Islanders get to enjoy are enough to put anyone in a seafood kind of mood, so you’ll want to give the Mahi Tacos a try at Hurricane Grill & Wings Patchogue.
