Long Island restaurants close for storm (most of them, anyway)

As if you needed more incentive to stay off the roads, restaurants are dropping like flies: Relish in Kings Park, R.S. Jones in Merrick, Tullulah's in Bay Shore, Kyma in Roslyn, Blackstone Steakhouse in Melville, Rare650 in Syosset, Insignia in Smithtown, Restaurant Five Five 2 in St. James, Jewel in Melville, Sweet to Lick Bakery in Williston Park — all are closing because of the storm. The list will go on all night.

Not Tutto Pazzo of Halesite, though. “I live in Port Washington,“ said co-owner Joe Petrone. “There's no way I'm driving home. Me and a couple of the guys decided we'd just stay here and serve.“

If you happen to live — or are stranded — in Halesite, head on over to Tutto Pazzo. Wednesday the Italian restaurant is selling food (not drinks) for half price, cash only.

Tutto Pazzo is at 84 New York Ave., Halesite, 631-271-2253.
