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

Bay Shore is widely seen as the gateway to Fire Island. But the town’s Main Street has its own year-round allure, thanks to a compelling assortment of restaurants within walking distance of one another. Here are five to check out:

TULA KITCHEN,
41 E. Main St., 631-539-7183, tulakitchen.com
At this plush and romantic spot, the menu is geared to health and balance; vegetarians will find more than enough to choose from. Past standouts include Mediterranean spreads, like hummus and babaghanoush; sesame-crusted tuna (or tofu) and baked salmon cakes. $$-$$$

AJI 53
53 E. Main St., 631-591-3107, aji53.com.
Neon lights and techno music define this hip Asian fusion restaurant. Winning choices: the heart-shaped Valentine roll, rock shrimp tempura and miso black cod.$$-$$$

GALANGA THAI RESTAURANT
