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

This week, Newsday launches Eat Here Now, our annual list of Long Island’s Top 100 Restaurants. We’ve organized the restaurants by category — 10 picks in 10 categories — and the first category we’re highlighting is gastropubs.

Neither pub fare nor bar food, what you find at a gastropub is pretty refined and usually creative. It's the high end of the homey, boosted with style and accompanied by top brews.

Our last Top 100 didn’t even have a gastropub category, but this year they’ve been coming fast and furious: BBDs in Rocky Point, Joe’s Garage & Grill in Riverhead and That Meetball Place in Patchogue opened, and The Savoy Tavern in Merrick and Tullulah’s in Bay Shore relaunched.

Check out our 10 picks in the gastropub category, as well as the full list, sortable by cuisine, price and location. (App users, click the links above to view.)
