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

For more than 36 years, Canterbury Ales, a British-style pub, has been a Huntington standby as well as a landmark.  Now, the restaurant has closed its heavy wooden doors. In a mass email, owner Billy Hoest gave as a reason the economic slowdown and a multitude of other factors.

The popular gathering spot was known for its brews and burgers as well as its autumnal Oktoberfest specials.
