The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
It used to be that some of the best BBQ on Long Island could be found midday at Lily Flanagans in Islip. Until recently, pitmaster Will Breakstone was smoking chicken, pork, corned beef and pastrami from a mobile smoker behind the restaurant. Now, however, Breakstone who, years earlier, had a Bay Shore BBQ takeout called Willie Bs is no longer at Lily Flanagans or in the restaurant business.
These days, at Lily Flanagan's, youll find an Irish pub menu with a side of OTB. No house-smoked ribs, though.
Lily Flanagans is at 528 Main St., Islip, 631- 581-1550.
