Peter Gianotti reviews Mara's Homemade of Syosset in today's Newsday, praising the Cajun-and-barbecue joint's jalapeno-spiked hush puppies, char-grilled oysters, crawfish cheesecake, ribs and chopped brisket -- along with the house-made pies.

MP Taverna gets three-and-a-half stars from Joan Reminick in this week's Cheap Eats column. The new Roslyn Greek restaurant has "supernal" octopus and meatballs in a "sprightly tomato, olive and onion sauce," along with other dishes that demonstrate "a vision of Greek cuisine at once elevated and casual."
