Some of my best memories are...
Rothmann's East Norwich
Linden Tree Bethpage
Jabby's Tavern Hicksvillle
Borrelis East Meadow
Steve's Pier One Bayville
Viennese Coach Syosset
Upper Brookville is still nice, as well as much of the Gold Coast. Lots of subdividing, though.
My daughter works at ROTHMANN'S. She's met Vinny Testaverde and Billy Joel there.
Totally forgot about the LINDEN TREE even though it's probably about a mile from my house and I actually even ate there once.
JABBY'S. Always remembered the Chicken In The Basket sign painted right on the brick, high up on the side of the building. Fifty years ago I thought that looked tasty. It's still there but quite faded. Was a Country & Western hotspot for a few years. I had a few beers there when I came of age. Big old shuffleboard table. Been closed quite a while and has seen several incarnations of Indian restaurants.
BORELLI'S is still there and I keep meaning to stop in for old time's sake. Haven't been there in about thirty years or so.
STEVE'S PIER ONE has that nice setting but I never hear too much about the food. Seems what I hear is you go for the view.
Never had the pleasure of dining at the VIENNESE COACH. I always heard excellent food, never anything bad.
Thanks for that reminder of the Linden Tree. I may very well have never remembered it again and I do like to reminisce.
