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

Althouse 1848 is new to the restaurant scene in East Rockaway. The bi-level gastropub occupies a landmark structure that dates back to 1848. On the ground level, there's a bar and outdoor patio; a dining room with another bar occupies the second floor.

In charge of the kitchen is Franco Maffettone, who was corporate chef for the Uncle Jack’s Steakhouses in Manhattan and Bayside. He also cooked at the Ruth’s Chris Steakhouses in Manhattan and Tarrytown and at Houston’s in Manhattan.
