In this week's Newsday, Joan Reminick finds "it's 1980 all over again" at Green Tasty, a "retro-new" Chinese restaurant in Williston Park that takes over the space once occupied by the semi-Vietnamese Paradise Island.
And the late, lamented Blue Sky Bistro in Malverne has been replaced by Il Villaggio Trattoria. Peter M. Gianotti finds it a friendly local destination.
Thinking about Valentine's Day reservations? Here's a list of Reminick's and Gianotti's favorite romantic restaurants.
