Long Beach restaurants: Great places for summer dining

The Hamptons may get all the glory, but Nassau County's South Shore has its very own beachside resort town, Long Beach. In the years since it was devastated by superstorm Sandy, Long Beach has come roaring back, with new food and dining options.

Long Beach has two primary commercial districts: Park Avenue, the blocks on either side of the Long Island Rail Road station, and the West End, about two miles to the west. This year, the West End -- traditionally focused more on drinking than eating -- has some of the city's hottest tables.

Here are some places not to miss.
