Surf and turf has taken on a new definition in the last decade or so, moving from the old gray filet mignon and a broiled lobster tail combo to outstanding beef and sushi. Here are three steakhouses where the first-class seafood rivals the red meat.


UNION PRIME STEAK & SUSHI, 661 Northern Blvd., Great Neck; 516-487-9200,

Last year’s big addition to Northern Boulevard’s steakhouse row, Union Prime Steak & Sushi succeeded Burton & Doyle and transformed the place. Recommended: crabcakes, colossal crab meat cocktail, grilled octopus, Dover sole meunière, sushi rolls, strip steak, filet mignon, porterhouse steak.


TELLERS: AN AMERICAN CHOPHOUSE, 605 Main St., Islip; 631-277-7070,

Tellers has one of Long Island’s more dramatic dining rooms, a high-ceiling affair in a converted bank building. The food is equally rich. Recommended: tuna sashimi, toro tartare, oysters, roasted diver scallops, local flounder oreganata, lobster, 40-ounce rib-eye steak, porterhouse steak.


BLACKSTONE STEAKHOUSE, 10 Pinelawn Rd., Melville; 631-271-7780,

Blackstone is dependably excellent, whether you’re here on business, socializing, or both. Recommended: signature sushi rolls, sushi and sashimi, steamed or broiled lobster, grouper with polenta, scallop risotto, porterhouse steak, rib-eye steak, filet mignon.
