Peter Gianotti awards two stars to Prime Catch in Rockville Centre. The seafood house’s chef, Axell Urrutia (most recently of Cannon’s Blackthorn) scores big with a special of pan-fried, whole red snapper escabèche, covered with a tart marinade of grape tomatoes and onions; crunchy outside, snowy within.

Joan Reminick reviews Merengue in Garden City Park, a Dominican restaurant whose service has yet to catch up to its two-star food. Reminick also has the lowdown on Kings Park’s restaurant renaissance.

Both reviewers teamed up for a roundup of Long Island’s dozen best crab cakes. And to see video of Nader Gebrin (of Bravo! Nader in Huntington) making his signature crab cake, click here.
