Wherever there's shopping, food usually follows close behind. So it's not surprising that two new eating spots have cropped up at Tanger Outlets at the Arches in Deer Park.
UNO Fresco, the first Long Island branch of a casual chain from the Chicago-based UNO, offers both Chicago-style deep dish and thin crust pizzas, along with a roster of entrees, pastas, panini and salads. Here, you order at the counter from such items as a cheese and tomato deep dish pizza ($5.99 individual; $11.99 large), thin-crust Margherita pizza ($5.99 individual; $11.99 large), pan-Asian chicken salad ($8.99), spinach and ricotta manicotti ($7.99), Cuban panino ($7.99) and meatballs marinara ($4).
UNO Fresco is at 152 The Arches Circle #996, Deer Park, 631-865-0920, unofresco.com.
Also, Joe’s Crab Shack, the freewheeling Houston-based seafood chain with branches in Westbury, Oceanside and Riverhead, is up and running on the perimeter of the outlet center. On the menu: a bucket of shrimp with Old Bay seasoning (12 for $9.89 or 18 for $13.49), cedar roasted salmon ($17.99), a chipotle bacon cheeseburger ($10.59) a bucket of crab — choose among snow crab, queen crab, Pacific Dungeness crab and arctic king crab ($25.49 to $34.99) and a variety of seafood steampots ($22.49 to $44.99).
