16 East Ct. Babylon, NY 631-482-1465
Named for a point break in Puerto Rico popular with surfers, Tres Palms has glided into Babylon, with a view of Great South Bay.
Owner Danny O'Donnell says the new, "coastal dining," waterside restaurant offers local seafood as well as landfare, with main dishes in the $26-$39 range. Pan-roasted fluke, pan-seared tuna, steamed lobster; pan-roasted loin of lamb, grilled buffalo strip steak and Berkshire pork tenderloin with sweet-and-spicy apple chutney are among them. The chef is Mark Farrell, formerly of Lucy's in Babylon.
Tres Palms is open every day for dinner from 5 p.m., and Friday, Saturday and Sunday for lunch, from noon to 5 p.m.
O'Donnell, who has been an avid surfer on Long Island and elsewhere, named the eatery after a specific point break in Rincon, Puerto Rico.
