The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Huntington Social first opened in 2011 in a second-story space overlooking Huntingtons Main Street. Now, the restaurant and bar has had a major menu change. Same chef Christopher Lee but, instead of a roster featuring entrees priced as high as $38, there is now a gently priced list of small plates, sandwiches and burgers, no dish costing more than $16.
We wanted to be more approachable and draw large groups on weekends, said chef de cuisine Luke Omarzu, who noted that many of the small plates like Marys meatballs over polenta (formerly $9, now $7) are the same as before. Other small plate options include charred Spanish octopus ($8) and short rib flatbread ($9).
Also on the menu: baked or fried bourbon BBQ wings ($9), a wild mushroom Angus burger ($13) and a grilled tuna Hawaiian club sandwich ($14).
Huntington Social is at 330 New York Ave., Huntington, 631-923-2442.
