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

Zane Smith has taken over as executive chef at the new Toast & Tapas Neighborhood Bistro in Syosset. Smith, who worked and studied with both Wolfgang Puck and Gary Danko in California, also cooked at Wild Honey in Oyster Bay and Wild Harvest in Glen Cove.

Smith's revised dinner menu features, among small plates, filet mignon brochettes with lemon orzo ($14), Bayou crabcakes ($13) and golden beet and brussels sprout napoleon ($10). Main courses include Southern fried chicken ($17), a “down home” gumbo ($17) as well as a Kentucky “hot brown” sandwich of smoked pulled chicken with bacon, tomatoes and Swiss on toast ($15). There are also burgers and salads.

While the breakfast and lunch menus are similar to the ones at the affiliated Toast & Co. in Huntington, the Syosset restaurant is serving Starbucks coffee and features several different specials.

Toast & Tapas Neighborhood Bistro is at 4 Berry Hill Rd., Syosset, 516-364-0516.
