Abboccato, meaning “a touch of sweetness,” will feature a menu that reflects the true appetites of Italy. Owned by The Livanos Family, Abboccato will provide a taste and experience similar to that of authentic restaurants in Italy. Anyone looking for that unique Italian flavor will find themselves at home when dining at Abboccato. <br /><br /> The 75-seat restaurant serves true and time-honored Italian recipes elevated through the talent and techniques of executive chef David Arias, and features a multitude of Italian products and ingredients. <br /><br /> Abboccato offers a selection of Chiccetti, small plates for sharing, which encourage a lively dining experience. Plentiful pasta fill out the Primi Piatti options and fresh Artic Char, Lamb Chops, Whole Branzino and even Veal Sweetbreads make up the savory Secondi Piatti list. <br /><br />In addition to the savory Italian cuisine, Abboccato’s dessert menu allows diners to end their meal as elegantly as they started it.

A genuine American Bistro, at George Martin The Original the emphasis is on prime steaks, chops and seafood. The mood is lively and upbeat with a casual, yet sophisticated atmosphere.

Akbar, with genuine Indian character and charm, is aptly named after the Grand Mogul Emperor famous for splendor of his hospitality, fabulous feasts and elegance of living. As the first Indian Restaurant in Long Island, Akbar has lived up to its name, providing unparalleled services to its guests for years. Inspired by the diverse tastes and flavors from India, each chef at Akbar not only brings years of culinary expertise to each dish, but also has his own specialty, creating a unique balance in each menu item. An elegant setting with dramatic high ceilings, plush carpeting, Indian carvings, and the romantic glow of candle light add to the memorable and unique dining experience.

"This was our first time at Akbar & we loved the food. Service was fine, a bit slow, but they were very busy, so we understood.
We'd recommend & will be back soon!

"This restaurant is very conveniently located right across the street from City Center where we often see a show; so we dine right across at Abboccato. Food is very good, cocktails are delicious, service is very good. I would highly recommend."

Nicholas James Bistro has brought the taste and culinary adventure of Manhattan to Merrick since late 1996. Offering a contemporary and seasonal American approach to food has achieved us an enthusiastic and loyal following in the community. Executive chef, Kevin Liebov"s imaginative menus, together with his careful preparation, exquisite presentation of dishes,and exceptional wines & spirits, make dining here a delicious adventure!

In the Tap Room guests can enjoy a menu of specialties from the wood-burning oven. An extensive selection of artisan beers, as well as a distinctive wine list by the glass and bottle, will round out the experience. Colicchio & Sons Tap Room is an excellent option to gather after a brisk walk on the High Line or a long day of work! Colicchio & Sons Tap Room accepts Brunch, Lunch and Dinner Reservations. <br /><br />For Brunch reservations, guests may be sat in EITHER the Tap Room OR the Main Dining Room. The same menu is served in both rooms.

City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill offers a varied menu including delicious hearth baked pizza, dry aged steaks, housemade fresh pasta and seafood. Some of the more popular dishes are Gulf Shrimp & Sea Scallop Risotto and housemade Charcuterie. The menu also features a daily selection of hard to find artisanal cheeses. The desserts are all enticing, all house made and all delicious. The restaurant features a huge award winning wine collection that can be sampled by the bottle, glass or "flight." City Cellar has been named one of The Top Ten Long Island Restaurants by Newsday and called "A sure thing" by The New York Times.

Waterzooi is Long Island's only Belgian Bistro, setting the standard for cutting edge food, service and style.<br />The Bistro is always raising the bar with innovative cocktails, martinis,<br />global wines and over 130 Belgian beers. The Euro Chic lounge creates a sleek and sophisticated atmosphere.
