What we're about

Huntington is Long Island's best dining and nightlife destination, having in excess of 150 restaurants. This group's mission is to explore the dining delights of Huntington. In so doing, we will enjoy laughs and great conversations and turn acquaintances into friends

For starters, I've compiled a list of 60 of Huntington's best dining venues to begin trying. Though our primary focus will be Huntington, we will sometimes venture into surrounding towns (loosely defined!) to enjoy some great dining opportunities elsewhere. While I have no immediate plans to do so, we may even take a "road trip" from time to time. I also anticipate doing combined events with other Meetup groups.

This group will offer only small and intimate dining experiences and limit the number of attendees to 6-8 people. We are also seeking only active members. Therefore, I will purge members who do not visit our site for six months. Moreover, in contrast to Let's Eat Long Island, from time to time, I will schedule events at restaurants that do not take reservations. This group welcomes singles and couples and, because of anticipated demand, we do not allow guests.

So........I invite you to join me and LET'S EAT HUNTINGTON!!!

Konoba Huntington

Konoba Huntington

Konoba is an exciting brand new Yelp FOUR STAR restaurant which characterizes itself as a "modern European gastropub". I'll let Erica Marcus of Newsday tell you more: The sad saga of Huntington’s Hush Bistro (Aug. 2017 to Dec. 2018) has a happy coda: Konoba Craft Kitchen & Tasting Lounge has moved into the cozy, wood-paneled space on Gerard Street. Konoba is a collaboration between owner Daniel Pedisich and chef Bruno Oliveira. The two men also run Bin 56, the wine bar that is less than a half mile away on Stewart Avenue. “It’s a more central location,” Pedisich said of Konoba, “and the kitchen is so much bigger. It’s going to allow Bruno to do a lot more.” Oliveira’s menu comprises cheese and charcuterie, salads, sliders and burgers, small plates and larger plates. Most dishes could be characterized as upscale pan-Mediterranean (fried burrata, filet-mignon carpaccio, lamb shank with wild-mushroom risotto) but an observant diner will notice a distinct Croatian bent. Croatia is directly across the Adriatic Sea from Italy and shares many of its culinary traditions. (Lidia Bastianich, the chef, author and television star was born in Istria, a part of Croatia that, at the time, was part of Italy.) “Konoba” is Croatian for “tavern” and among the Croatian specialties are kupus salata (a salad of shaved cabbage with roasted hazelnuts), cevapcici (a grilled kebab of lamb, beef and pork accompanied by fries and avjar, a red-pepper spread) and fuzi, the great Istrian pasta, here served with shrimp, white truffle and Parmesan cream. Proud of his gastronomic heritage, Pedisich uses Croatian olive oil and also features a number of Croatian wines on the well-curated wine list. Chef Oliveira is Brazilian by birth but, said Pedisich, “I’ve spent the last seven years schooling him and making him wear a Croatian World Cup T-shirt.” Konoba is at 46G Gerard St., Huntington,[masked], konobahuntington.com. There will be no meet and greet. Just ask for my table. Let's enjoy this terrific new gastropub on Monday, March 11th!!!
