The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Meet Morrison's, the gastropub successor to Red Fish in Plainview. Like its predecessor, it is owned by restaurateur Art Bloom, this time, with his daughter, manager Shelby Poole, and her husband, co-chef Harry Poole. Both will be going back and forth between Morrison's and their Commack restaurant, Jackson's, while co-chef Jason Adams will remain in Plainview.
The restaurant, designed and built by Art Bloom, has been almost entirely outfitted with booths. In both the bar and dining room, the emphasis is on craft beers and small batch liquors. The menu, Bloom said, features from-scratch preparations and carefully sourced ingredients. Options include burned Brussels sprout leaves ($6), spicy lobster egg rolls ($10), orecchiette with chicken sausage ($18), a burger ($13), barbecue mahi mahi ($23) and a grilled double cut bone-in pork chop ($21).
At the bar, a separate menu will introduce some new items, such as empanadas, and feature others that probably won’t ever make it to the dining room, among them a doughnut burger.
Morrison’s is at 430 Woodbury Rd., Plainview, 516-932-8460.
