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

Roses and chocolate are familiar themes for Valentine's Day. Then, there are blood oranges.

They certainly have the right tint, and their mix of sweet and tart reflects romance in its own way. And Almond restaurant in Bridgehampton celebrates the citrus and the holiday with a four-course dinner themed to the fruit.
