To honor the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels, performing in the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach this weekend, why not make dinner a "blue" event? Here are three restaurants whose names honor those precision pilots flying high in azure skies.

BLUE FISH
828 S. Oyster Bay Rd., Hicksville
516-605-0655, bluefishny.com

A cool blue sushi salon where pristinely fresh fish is presented with flair. Menu highlights include the lively "tuna pizza," towering five-flavor sashimi and a rainbow of colorful sushi rolls. The kitchen does well with miso-glazed black cod and tender steak teriyaki with bok choy.

BLUE MOON
26 N. Park Ave., Rockville Centre
516-763-4900, bluemoonpizzeria.com

At this nostalgic spot, the toppings on the Neapolitan pies are robust and garlicky, the crusts crisp and thin. The traditional menu features all the parms -- chicken, veal and eggplant, plus such pasta classics as house-made lasagna and linguine with white clam sauce.

BLUE POINT BISTRO & GRILLE
154 Montauk Hwy., Blue Point
631-868-7900, bluepointbistroandgrille.com

In comfortable, tasteful surroundings, chef Danny Avalos offers a menu of new American classics, among them pot roast, marinated skirt steak and house-made gnocchi Bolognese.
