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

In this week’s Newsday, Joan Reminick reviews Cook's Scratch Kitchen & Bakery in Northport, a counter-serve breakfast and lunch eatery where virtually everything is made from scratch. More importantly, the food is imaginative and, for the most part, exceedingly delicious.

Peter Gianotti visits Roslyn’s refurbished Jolly Fisherman & Steak House, opened in 1957 and whose menu has changed very little since then. That, he writes, is “the fundamental appeal of The Jolly Fisherman, which happily resists most trends and advises regulars when the soft-shell crabs and Nantucket bay scallops are in.”
