The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
The newest Ting in Huntington turns out to be another Asian Fusion restaurant. Open barely a week, this one makes its home in the lavishly decorated space that previously housed Legacy Asian Fusion and, before that, Dao and, for a number of years, Empire Szechuan Gourmet.
Executive sushi chef Jacky Zheng, who rolled raw fish at Dao, returns to his reincarnated digs with a repertoire that includes wonton sushi tacos ($13), the ornate Playboy roll — spicy salmon, peppered white tuna and more ($13) — as well as chirashi ($23).
Executive chef Alex Neoh cooked at the Four Seasons Hotel in Malaysia. His menu includes red curry duck ($24), shrimp with Malaysian sambal sauce ($17) and kung pao chicken with cashew nuts ($14).
Ting is at 92 E. Main St., Huntington, 631-425-7788.
