What’s a bullfish? In case you’re wondering, there is no such animal. But there is a new restaurant called Bullfish Grill that opened recently in the former Sayville digs of Armadillo Grille.
Owner Carlo Bruno said the playful name means many things. Not surprisingly, the restaurant’s “bullfish chowder” is made up of an ever-changing assortment of many fish. Chef Ray Lovell, who cooked at the Water Mill in Smithtown and Bocce Beach Restaurant on Fire Island, offers a seafood-centric menu with dishes such as hazelnut crusted catfish and cedar planked LI bluefish. Non-marine main course choices include garlic roasted chicken and veal porterhouse. Dinner entrees run $14 to $29.
Nice to know in winter: the dining room has a fireplace.
Bullfish Grill is at 298 W. Main St., Sayville, 631-563-9400, bullfishli.com
