The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

A Freeport favorite for Dominican fare, La Cocina de Marcia, has closed. The restaurant earned two stars for such well-wrought dishes as pernil (roasted pork), whole baked red snapper and sopa de mariscos (seafood soup).

Now occupying the same space is a new Dominican restaurant, called La Cocina del Papa y la Mama. Manager Jonathan Buenrostro said the restaurant offers the same dishes as its predecessor  — among them whole baked red snapper ($14.50) pernil ($11.99), barbecued chicken ($11.99) and sancocho ($6) — but with additions, such as a chicken breast stew with seafood ($29), which serves 2.

La Cocina del Papa y la Mama is at 77B W. Merrick Rd., Freeport, 516-442-2462.
