Pico Tequila Grill, located in Bay Shore, is a striking new restaurant that has a vogue vibe once you walk through the doors. Brick, wood and metal, with pops of color make a visually pleasing restaurant. Though the Cal-Mex food doesn't always come out on top, certain dishes make up for what others lack. This fun atmosphere is a great spot for not only food, but for drinks as well.
