The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
There are few Portuguese dishes more soulful than bacalhau a Bras, a bracing ode to cod that star chef Jamie Oliver has called "the ultimate comfort food."
It's a combination of delicious shredded salt cod, or bacalhau, tossed with matchstick fried potatoes, scrambled eggs, sauteed onions, parsley and black olives. At Fado restaurant in Huntington, the savory combination highlights the main courses. Enjoy it with slices of hearty, dense Portuguese bread. The price is $26.
A good way to start your meal at Fado is caldo gallego, the delectable Galician soup that combines collard greens and chourico sausage with potato, among other ingredients, for a rustic, very satisfying bowl of warmth. It goes for $7.
