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

Swingbellys Beachside BBQ has closed its Lynbrook branch.

That doesn't mean you won't be digging into the restaurant's smoky spice-rubbed ribs in the not-so-distant future.

The original Long Beach restaurant, decimated by superstorm Sandy, is working through the insurance maze. An email from restaurant spokesman Sean Sullivan said that the BBQ house is making progress with claims and expects to start rebuilding soon.

We expect to receive  — and post — updates.
