Long Island Chefs

Long Island’s top chefs take great care to create amazing dishes that reflect the personality of the region.

Many prefer to use only the freshest ingredients from the surrounding sea, combining these with ripe fruits and vegetables from New York organic farms, and then further pairing these with the best vintages from Long Island wineries.

Restaurants consistently brought to the top of Zagat’s top food ratings include: Kotobuki (Japanese), Maroni (Italian) Kitchen a Bistro (French), North Fork Table and Inn (American), Mirabelle (French), Le Soir (French), Peter Luger (steak), Chachama Grill (American), Piccolo (American), La Plage (eclectic), Fifth Season (American), Polo (American), Mill River Inn (American), Dario’s (Italian), Plaza Cafe (American).

While on Long Island, discover a variety of restaurants and inns. Visit wineries, breweries and a distillery; take a lunch or dinner cruise; explore historic restaurants; stop at an area farm stand to bring home your own fresh ingredients so you can create your own Long Island recipe.
