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

If you're a fan of Maize Cantina in Commack, you may want to set your DVR for tomorrow at around 5:45. That's about when the restaurant is scheduled to be in a Channel 7 Eyewitness News segment entitled "Neighborhood Eats."

Maize was included in last year's Top Ten lineup of "Cheap Eats" restaurants.  Here's what we wrote: "At his creative Latin-fusion spot, chef Michael Merida even makes the tortillas. He recently upgraded the innovative assortment of pupusas, arepas and salads, adding some knockout appetizers and entrees while earning three stars."

Not to be missed is Merida's sensational lobster quesadilla made with bacon, egg and truffle oil.

Maize is at 1141 Jericho Tpke., Commack, 631-864-2777
