5 Places for a Taste of Patchogue

Between the variety of delicious restaurants in Patchogue, it’s hard to settle on just one for dinner. The annual Taste of Patchogue—taking place on May 24 this year—is the one night a year where having it all can be an option. The event has evolved into an evening to celebrate the community as well as support it by benefitting The Patchogue Neighbor’s Soup Kitchen.

Whether you’re in the mood for sushi, tacos, mac and cheese (or even all three), these Patchogue restaurants simply can’t be missed as you taste your way through town.

Del Fuego

Looking for a dinner that will really guac your socks off? From the first dip of the dirty harry salsa, you’ll know Del Fuego has the Tex-Mex delights to do just that. While the taco trio is an obvious Tuesday favorite, the kitchen really shines with entrees like the lobster quesadilla or the surf and turf fajitas. To drink, the signature Casa del Fuego made with chili-infused Dobel Diamante Tequila will make for a meal that’s truly on fire. Address: 25 W. Main St. | Phone: 631-569-5400 Click to taste 

Hoshi Sushi & Hibachi

It’s hard to beat a well-crafted sushi roll made with the freshest seafood Long Island can offer. That’s what Hoshi is all about, serving up the likes of the aptly named Patchogue Roll, a spicy tuna roll with cucumber, avocado, caviar and shrimp tempura. More of a landlubber? Turf options like filet mignon, chicken and sirloin are also on the menu. Address: 35 W. Main St. | Phone: 631-627-8090 Click to taste

If you’re anxiously awaiting the opening of Blue Point’s stunning new Main Street brewery, curb your excitement with a few sips of the latest brews at Taste of Patchogue. The Honey Robber cream ale will be an instant favorite with six cereal grains, three hops and honey to create a refreshing sipper with floral citrusy notes. To get in that summer spirit, though, what better choice than the Summer Ale? This unique light ale is a keen thirst quencher on those hot days.

The Tap Room

Sometimes you’re just in the mood for a great burger—that’s where the Tap Room comes in. The menu has a little bit of everything from jalapeño poppers to the famous steamed mussels, but the burgers really take the prize. Made with the kitchen’s signature blend 100 percent beef patty, the classic Tap burger with all the fixings is always a good choice. Pair it with one of the 27 craft beers on tap, and you’ve got the perfect dinner. Address: 114 W. Main St. | Phone: 631-569-5577 Click to taste
