The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Javier’s Café is turning out pancakes, omelets, sandwiches and salads in the Smithtown digs that last hosted Luso (which moved to larger quarters nearby). Chef-owner Edgar “Javier” Viera cooked for 16 years at Maureen’ & Daughters' Kitchen, also in Smithtown. His new place, like Maureen’s, serves only breakfast and lunch.
On the menu: banana blueberry pancakes ($8.25), stuffed peach pecan French toast ($7.50), a Polish sausage, potato, scallion and smoked mozzarella omelet ($9.25), a turkey, tomato, bacon, swiss and rémoulade sandwich on grilled rye ($10.25), a cheeseburger with fries ($10.25) and a chef salad ($13.75).
The place offers patio dining out back.
Javier’s Café is at 101 E. Main St., Smithtown, 631-406-7712.
