Lots of spark in the Thai fare at this cozy spot. Try the sweet-sour-salty-spicy duck salad laced with apples, drunken noodles with vegetables and a vibrant-hot shrimp Massaman curry. Don’t miss the house-made cinnamon ice cream.

AMERICAN ROADSIDE BURGER (80 E. Main St., Smithtown, 631-382-9500)
Done in a nostalgic roadhouse motif, this counter-service burger spot serves a classic burger menu augmented by an array of fresh toppings.

CHOP SHOP BAR & GRILL (47 E. Main St., Smithtown, 631-360-3383)

A spirited New American spot with very good food, from chopped salad to double-cut pork chops. Recommendations include Buffalo chicken spring roll, fried calamari and sesame-seared tuna.

LUSO RESTAURANT (133 W. Main St., Smithtown, 631-406-6820)

Recently relocated just west of the town center is this all-you-can-eat churrasqueira devoted to Portuguese “wood-char BBQ,” which means nonstop skewers of sizzling grilled beef, pork, sausages and bacon-wrapped turkey.

This popular Long Island Italian chainlet offers classic Italian favorites as well as some modern spins. Low-carb, “lighter side” and gluten-free choices, as well.
