In this week’s Newsday, Joan Reminick cracks open Thai Coconut, “a simply but tastefully appointed little restaurant just steps from the LIRR station in Wantagh. Hop off the train and within minutes, you can be communing with a bowl of sour-spicy tom yum goong that's rife with plump shrimp.”

Peter Gianotti reviews Il Luogo, the new Italian spot in Lynbrook whose “executive chef, Marco Jara, make the successor to Paul Anthony's a big-time player on Sunrise Highway.” Bonus: On Tuesday nights, actor Joseph R. Gannascoli (who played Vito, the doomed gay gangster, on "The Sopranos") guest-stars in the kitchen.

And check out Gianotti’s roundup of great business-lunch venues: 16 restaurants in five of Long Island’s busiest business hubs “where you can seal the deal.”
