Restaurant Week on the North Fork of Long Island

Starting Sunday November 1st some of the top restaurants in the North Fork area are participating in Long Island Restaurant Week. I assembled this list of participants in my area from various websites including www.exploreli.com which seems to be one of the most comprehensive if you want more information. Below is the list in alphabetical order of their towns for the North Fork and a little further west, and includes several of my favorites. This is a great opportunity to sample the work of some excellent chefs. If you are traveling to the East End from Manhattan or the Western part of Long Island for instance I highly recommend that you take this opportunity to try La Plage in Wading River, or stop there on the way back. It is a bit off the beaten track but very much worth the diversion. More locally this is a perfect opportunity to try The North Fork Table and Inn in Southold which just achieved Four Star status.

We still have rooms at the Shorecrest Bed & Breakfast for this weekend and next, the perfect place to stay between meals while on your Gourmet adventure. I’m thinking up something special for the breakfasts as well!

Diliberto Winery Features Music and Wine

During your visit to Shorecrest Bed & Breakfast, enjoy a North Fork summer evening in July with music and wine at Diliberto Winery.  Be sure to pack a picnic or enjoy takeout from one of the local restaurants.  Then sit back and enjoy your evening while sipping on one on their award winning wines.  This is surely a way to relax after a stressful week of work in the city. 

Live music will be provided on the patio at Diliberto Winery on the evenings of July 24th and 31st from 6-9 P.M.  Guests will enjoy a delightful mix of folk rock, jazz, and soul sung by Jeanine Cullen.  Jeanine Cullen is a gifted singer, songwriter, and musician and has performed in the past with wonderful reviews.

A stay at the Shorecrest Bed & Breakfast is always enjoyable, especially when accompanied by music, wine, and a visit to a local winery.
