To dish on the Long Island dining scene, we went to the source.

Fine dining critic Peter M. Gianotti has been covering restaurants for Newsday since the mid-1980s, so we sat down for a conversation with him fueled by readers' questions.

With his new book, "Food Lovers' Guide to Long Island," out Tuesday and plenty to say about where to eat during Long Island Restaurant Week, Gianotti answered questions about where to get a great steak, finding seafood (without breaking the bank), kid-friendly options and more.

Read all he had to say below.
