The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

One of the first “boutique” burger spots to hit Long Island, Burger 9 Point 5 in Merrick, closed for a three-week renovation and reopened under the same ownership as Cafe Nee.

The little storefront on Merrick Avenue underwent chef and menu changes since it first opened in 2008. Among the varieties of burgers that have come off its grill over the years: beef, lamb, bison, Kobe (sort of), turkey and vegetable burgers. All manner of toppings, too.

A new menu still spotlights burgers but also has panini and salads, among other items. More details coming soon.

Cafe Nee is at 139B Merrick Ave., Merrick, 516-543-4141.
