And pick up some fried chicken first. Zorn’s is Nassau County’s poultry specialist, founded in Bethpage as a farm in 1940 and now operating takeout operations in Bethpage and Bellmore (which also has seating).

The Southern-fried chicken is equally good hot or cold. Buckets range from $24.69 (8 pieces of chicken with two sides) to $70.75 (25 pieces with six sides).
