Mara’s Too in Wantagh just launched a new roster of small plates, most of them New Orleans and Southern-style dishes. Among choices: savory crawfish cheesecake ($14), chargrilled clams ($10), deviled eggs ($7), shrimp nachos ($6) and cornbread etouffe ($12). The restaurant is also adding a charcuterie and cheese menu, available after 8 p.m. as of Friday.

Co-owner Mara Levi said that full-sized main dishes, BBQ items and sandwiches are still part of the mix. Whether she will go over to an all small-plate menu depends upon what customers want. “We’ll be watching what’s selling,” Levi said.

Levi added that at her original restaurant, Mara's Homemade in Syosset, the menu of full-sized portions will remain the same.

Mara’s Too is at 3261 Merrick Rd., Wantagh, 516-785-5300,
