The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
The restaurant, which combines seafood, steak and Italian specialties, opened about a year ago in the shopping center space that had housed Charlie Brown's Steak House. It received a single star from Newsdays Peter Gianotti, who praised its eggplant Parmigiana, steamed lobster and excellent filet mignon, big and tender, but found the crabcakes a bit short on crab and the porterhouse somewhat chewy.
