Why: To feel as though you're eating a cool ocean breeze
The Fishery Grill in Glen Head, an offshoot of The Fishery in East Rockaway, has closed. It made its debut a little more than a year ago.
The East Rockaway restaurant, however, continues to serve a seafood menu that includes a very good chilled raw bar platter ($22.95 for one; $39.95 for two) as well as a fine sampler of the restaurant’s various chowders ($5.95). In good weather, there's dining on an outdoor deck near the water.
The Fishery is at 1 Main St., East Rockaway, 516-256-7117, thefishery.kpsearch.com.
