The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
The fourth annual oyster festival is under way at Legal Sea Foods in Huntington Station. It will continue until Oct. 16.
Expect to find oyster stew, fried oysters, an oyster po'boy, oyster-and-sausage jambalaya and a raw bar with six varieties of the bivalve.
They've revised the regular menu at the eatery off Walt Whitman Shops, too. But you still can enjoy the New England-style clam chowder and the crab cake. Try the excellent, wood-grilled haddock, the pan-seared and sliced tuna "sashimi" and those plump fried oysters, along with some seaweed salad and a little red onion jam.
