There are changes in the kitchens of three of Newsday's new Top 100 restaurants.
Luigi Q in Hicksville, one of our Top 10 in the Italian category and the recipient of 3 1/2 stars from critic Peter M. Gianotti, has a new chef, Jorge Gonzalez.
Gonzalez had worked at Luigi Q several years ago before leaving to run the kitchen at Cafe Buenos Aires in Huntington and its Commack spin-off Cafe Mendoza, both of which earned three stars and appear on Newsday's list of Top 10 small-plates restaurants. No new chef has been named.
None of the restaurants are planning any menu changes.
Luigi Q is at 400A South Oyster Bay Rd., Hicksville, 516-932-7450.
Cafe Mendoza is at 169 Commack Rd., Commack, 631-486-8848, cafemendoza.com
Cafe Buenos Aires is at 23 Wall St., Huntington, 631-603-3600, cafebuenosaires.net
