ilili is New York’s premier contemporary Lebanese restaurant offering inspired Mediterranean cuisine. The menu mixes authentic Lebanese dishes with modern Mediterranean influences to create a culinary journey for the palate and senses. Complementing the international cuisine, ilili offers an impressive wine list that includes wines from all over the world and features favorites from Lebanon and the Mediterranean. The restaurant’s decor echoes the diverse menu, combining the architectural richness of Old Lebanon with an attitude and style that is unmistakably New York. A DJ sets the mood with music from around the globe and soft, amber lighting punctuated by candles create a sexy, sophisticated atmosphere in which to enjoy a relaxed meal. The cuisine, décor and ambience come together to create a new world for your senses to explore, whispering gently in your ear, ilili.

"This meal was so fantastic. It was my second time visiting and I loved every bite. Great to go with a group (although we were just 3). We ordered a bunch of small plates. Loved the delicious variety. Everything was awesome. My favorite dish was the shrimp salad. Sounds pedestrian, but the greens included mint and parsley and it had some sort of pickled (I think) lemon rind. So YUMMY! There are not many good restaurants in this area. Great when looking for something near Penn Station/Madison Square Garden. I highly recommend!"

Mother nature is a living canvas. Winter is the essence; the pencil sketch. Spring is the creativity as the oils begin to be applied in a mixture of colors. Summer is the painting reaching its maturity ready for exhibit. And Fall is the many years of the painting being displayed as it slowly weathers from the elements until its hidden spirit is once again revealed, the pencil strokes; "a Pentimento".<br /><br />Inspired by the spirit of Mother nature, culinary artist and owner Dennis Young reflects this progression by creating a series of menus that are in sync with each of the seasons. And like the seasons each menu is merely a layer on the culinary canvas that chef and artist Dennis Young has been painting on for more than half of his life, and if one looks closely you can see through all of those layers and find a covered essence, "a Pentimento".

"I haven't been to Pentimento in a long time and was really pleased with the new menu. The food and service were fantastic. I recall limited selections in the past. The menu has more to choose from now. Although I did not get any of the cheese or cured meats, I look forward to trying that in the future. Will definitely go back!"

Local farms and waters are the inspiration for this New American restaurant that focuses on preparing menus using ingredients that change with each season. American microbrews and wines are carefully selected to pair with each dish our chefs create. Enjoy our House-Infused Artisanal Cocktails made with seasonal purees and fresh squeezed juices while overlooking the Long Island Sound on either the outdoor patio, upstairs seating or cozy lounge. Established in 2004 in Greenport, this Zagat top-rated restaurant for both food and service moved in Spring 2008 to Port Jefferson harbor.

"I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Very beautiful setting and amazing view. Food was really delicious! Usually Korean BBQ is more casual. Was nice to have it in a fancier setting."
