The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Chef Jonathan Chevlin is no longer cooking at O'Hara's Ale House in Port Washington.
Chevlin, who earned a two-and-a-half-star rating for hearty fare that "tasted of serious gastronomy," was most recently featured in an article on creative Long Island hot dogs. His franks weighed in at a pound each and featured such unconventional topping combinations as scrambled eggs with cheddar, bacon and scallions.
Those dogs, as well as the rest of Chevlin's menu will remain, said restaurant owner Tom O'Hara, who added that current head chef Roberto Hernandez has been cooking with Chevlin since the restaurant opened last fall.
Chevlin, reached by phone, said that a recent move to the Upper East Side made for a difficult commute to Port Washington.
O' Hara's Ale House is at 611 Port Washington Blvd., Port Washington, 516-321-9254
