Spend the day at Latitude 121 in Stony Brook. It's open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
This very enjoyable new restaurant has moved into the former site of the Brook House. Beadboard and nautical images decorate the bright dining area. But fans of its predecessor will be glad to know that adjoining it is an ice cream parlor.
Executive chef James Cavorti comes here from George Martin's Strip Steak in Great River. At the "coastal grill," he prepares a savory lobster Thermidor potpie and excellent grilled swordfish with caper-lemon brown butter. Also recommended: tender filet mignon and the mini-pork "wings" appetizer with sweet potato sticks.
An egg cream suits the sunny place, too.
At breakfast, choose an omelet, a frittata or waffles. At lunch: the lobster roll or the BLT, the Cubano or the Reuben.
The friendly establishment gives you just another reason to walk around and enjoy downtown Stony Brook.
