I'm leaving the office now and heading over to the billed-as-glitzy Jewel, the latest venture from Long Island's best-known restaurateur-raconteur, Tom Schaudel. I'll be live tweeting about the food and the crowd, so follow me @feedmeli.
And if you want to join me, I'll be the one at the bar tapping away furiously on an iPhone.
Jewel, the megabuck Melville project of Chef Schaudel and principal partner Mark Beige, opened tonight at 5 in Rubie Corporate Plaza, a Route 110 office building just south of the Long Island Expressway. Schaudel says it will rival any restaurant in Vegas. We shall see.

Jewel is at 400 Broadhollow Rd., Melville, 631-755-5777.
