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

Anyone distraught over the current closing for renovation of Nick & Toni's in East Hampton can head to Florida. Chef Joseph Realmuto will be cooking there this week.

Realmuto is participating in the South Beach Wine and Food Festival. George Hirsch, former restaurateur on Long Island, TV host and author, also will take part in the festivities, which start tomorrow.

Realmuto is executive chef of Nick & Toni's and Rowdy Hall in East Hampton, as well as La Fondita in Amagansett and Townline BBQ in Sagaponack. He earned three stars in Newsday last year. Realmuto will prepare grilled lamb loin with yogurt barbecue sauce; and Hirsch, grilled filet of beef chilaquiles.

SOBE runs from Feb. 21 to Feb. 24.
