Eaters Digest: New To You, Soon To Come

Salsa by the Sea, Munchies with Martinis and Seafood in Oakdale

Singleton’s Salsa Shack
Bay Pavilion at Tobay Beach
1 Ocean Pkwy, Massapequa

Singleton’s Seafood Shack
Cedar Beach
Harbor Beach Road, Mt. Sinai


Next to their successful waterfront Seafood Shack (with parking for non-residents) is this Mexican food stand with a full menu of Mexican-American faves, plus more ambitious fare including Mole Poblano and Grilled Mahi Mahi, plus margaritas and sangria.

Also, another Singleton’s Seafood Shack has opened on the bay beach in Mt. Sinai, where you can also snack on Fried Oysters, Shrimp Jambalaya, Steamers and everything else the Tobay original has (except for Lobster in the Rough).

Sugar Dining Den & Social Club
246 Voice Rd., Carle Place
516- 248-7600

This new nightclub shoved into the corner of a shopping center where a branch of Ciao Baby was has some interesting menus both early and late. Early in the evening you’ll find a number of entrées, but the sharing menu has a multitude of trendy fun foods to have with drinks: Drunken Share Ribs, Coconut Shrimp, Tuna Tartar Cones, Meatballs, Veal Spiedini, Pulled Pork Mini Tacos and of course, sliders. Late night is even more casual with lighter options including Mini Grilled Cheese sandwiches, Kobe Corn Dogs and more sliders—even Cupcake Sliders.

3 Consuelo Pl., Oakdale

The Riverview has been transformed with William Muzio (Le Bernardin) as executive chef. The new menu—featuring a raw bar and sushi bar—changes with the seasons, using local foods when available. Appetizers include Thai Calamari and Duck Tacos and there is a full roster of seafood and steaks. The sushi menu has something called Duke of Fluke, made with locally caught fish. They have a great three-course $24.95 early bird prix fixe every night but Saturday.

Coming Later This Summer:

441 E. Main St. (Rt. 25A), Centerport

Another roadside attraction offering an old-time soda fountain, clam bar, sushi bar and Kobe beef frankfurters, angus beef burgers and pound-and-a-quarter lobster rolls with a great view right on Mill Pond.

Asian Bistro Next Door
Woodbury Commons Shopping Center
8285 Jericho Tpke., Woodbury

When Graffiti, An American Grill moves next door to the larger space that housed Baang Café & Bar, this new café will open with the addition of Asian specialties and a new menu of sandwiches and salads, with an emphasis on sustainable foods and hormone- and steroid-free meat, fish and poultry. Both new spots will have outdoor seating and the new Graffiti will have a bar.
