Jema Restaurant - Huntington, NY - CLOSED

I’ve been going to physical therapy for the last couple of weeks, and every session the therapist and I discuss new Long Island restaurants.  The therapist lives in Huntington, so he told me about this great new restaurant that just opened in town. When I tried to make a reservation, I realized that everyone seems to have heard about this restaurant because it was booked for the entire month!

Waterzooi Belgian Bistro - Garden City, NY

It’s Superbowl Sunday morning and my husband and I are trying to figure out what to do with the kids to get them out of the house before the game tonight. We always try to plan something that is fun for them and squeeze in something that we would enjoy as well. We wanted to go for brunch since we knew we would be eating lots of food once our Superbowl party started. After brainstorming a little bit, we came up with the perfect plan – Waterzooi for brunch and then the Children’s museum for the kids.

Rustic Root - Woodbury, NY

When I first became a mother, my days consisted of Mommy & Me classes and then lunch with the moms after class. Our favorite restaurant for lunch with the babies was Laguna Grill in Woodbury. It was a laid- back environment and nobody cared if your baby was crying in the corner (which mine was most of the time!) As my daughter aged we went back to Laguna Grill all the time for the kids eat free menu. I was so disappointed when this restaurant closed. This disappointment quickly subsided when an amazing farm to table restaurant took its place.
