The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
In the snowy corner of the Woodbury Common shopping center, Krinti is serving some Mediterranean sunshine.
Modern in style and traditional on the plate, it's a welcome addition to local dining and a definite distraction from any weather report.
Try a sampler of appetizers, from very good taramasalata and spiced tomatoes to feta-filled phyllo "cigars" and herbaceous cubed eggplant. Also recommended: grilled octopus and a "sultan kebab" starring lamb chops, skirt steak and chicken. Pistachio baklava is a tasty finale
