The Phoenix, Seaford: First bites

A recent lunch at The Phoenix in Seaford proved revelatory.  It's a surprise that a place with the black and red decor of a 70s rock club could turn out the kind of food it does.

Chef Ryan Augusta impressed with the first fiery-sweet sip of spicy peanut soup topped with grapes, pumpkin seeds and fried sweet potato curls. A BBQ pulled duck flatbread pizza featured a cracker-thin crust crowned with duck confit and hoisin barbecue sauce. It was irresistible. So, too, was a hearty roasted pork and broccoli rabe sandwich.

The kitchen is open every night until 2 a.m.

The Phoenix is at 3915 Merrick Rd., Seaford, 516-809-9693.
