The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Last time we took a survey of restaurants with numbers in their names, we counted 16. That was about a year and a half ago and we were only talking about places named for their addresses.
Add to that other number-named restaurants (area codes, expressway exits, dates and more) and taking into account all the openings and closings, an update is in order.
So, heres where we stand now, at 26 restaurants:
1 North Steakhouse in Hampton Bays (named for its address)
18 Bay in Shelter Island ( named for its former Bayville address)
21 Main in Sayville (named for its address)
