Cheap eats on Long Island

Big flavors don't have to cost big bucks.

Anyone who tells you otherwise doesnt know beans about Long Island restaurants. From Cedarhurst to Montauk, you can score culinary coups for under $30 a person.

How does slow-smoked barbecued ribs with mac and cheese sound at a BBQ joint? Or fresh pasta with wild mushrooms and truffle oil at a gastro pub? Sparkling sashimi at a homey Japanese storefront?

In the mood for Thai red curry with beef? Shrimp oreganata? Succulent copper-skinned rotisserie chicken at a Colombian cantina?

Let this restaurant guide point the way to whatever you crave, with a new restaurant added each week.
