In this week’s Newsday, Joan Reminick reviews Stango’s at the Orchard, the Glen Cove landmark recently relaunched by a group of investors led by former Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi. Reminick praises the “first-class red sauce” and the “straightforward Italian repertoire melding the skills of chef Gabriel Massaro with the culinary legacy of 96-year-old restaurant matriarch Stella Stango Cocchiola, who still drops by to eat.”

“Sometimes, it seems as if a new restaurant pulls in near the Port Washington railroad station with each train,” writes Peter Gianotti. Crave Restaurant & Bar is the latest tenant in the space that has hosted Haven Grill, Cafe Capriccio and Montebello and, “more than any of its immediate predecessors, Crave probably suits the site. It's attuned to commuters coming and going, as well as couples and families looking for an easygoing night out.”
