The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
If hunger hits while youre prowling the racks at Neiman Marcus Last Call or the Banana Republic Factory Store, it might come in handy to know that Milano Pizzeria & Ristorante is the newest eating option at Tanger Outlet at the Arches in Deer Park. Find it in the space last occupied by Fratelli Trattoria.
Like its predecessor, it offers choices that range from a quick slice of pizza to a full-course Italian-American dinner. Seating is both upstairs and downstairs, indoors and out.
On the menu: eggplant rollatini ($8.50), chicken wings ($9), spinach salad ($9), a 12-inch Margherita pizzetta ($10), a grilled chicken panino ($6), chicken parmigiana ($16) and baked ziti ($11). Manager Chris Maniaci said that steak and seafood items will be offered as specials on weekends.
The restaurant is under the same ownership as Rustica Brick Oven Cafe in Garden City.
Milano Pizzeria & Ristorante is at 152 The Arches Circle, Suite 996, Deer Park, 631-667-8000, milanodeerpark.com.
