An average eatery. A fly is hovering over us the entire time. We’ve lunch box. There are plastic lawn chairs outside, perhaps they get busy at certain time.

It’s the Yelp event.

It’s three locations. As usual, I didn’t check and went to their Roslyn branch. It’s busy with parking lot filled to the brim.

Driving out to this Bayville location, I pass by Oyster Bay Nation Wildlife Refuge on W Shore Road. The view is pretty even as the sky darkens. Unfortunately the restaurant is not on the water but the food is delicious and the staff is friendly. The utensils and tableware are nice.

Oyster Bay

Drive by shooting. A little too dark with poor photography skill (do I ever have? ha ha ha).

Freeport

South shore. The Woodcleft Avenue comes to live on weekends for parties. Open air bars, plenty party boats.

Sushi Family

Little Neck NY 11362 Yelp

At 6:50pm, the restaurant is empty. Both young men are playing with his cell phone, one behind the counter and one in the dinning hall.

I order sushi, sashimi and roll platters – deluxe @ $48. The rolls are huge, must have been hamburgrized, very unappetizing. The salmon sashimi tasted dated. Won’t return.

Oyster Bay ice skating center

It’s pretty huge, pool, four tennis courts, play ground, a nice little cafe.

New York (88 & 89th streets) Yelp

A lovely neighborhood wine bar. They serve the best mustard. The prosciutto and Spanish ham are super tender and delicious. Love their brick walls and art works on them – one of it looks rather like Hillary Clinton. Whatever.

Bordeaux is the lightest, all good tho:

  • 2012 Rocaille, Syrah langue doc-roussillon France $11
  • 2014 rascal, Pinot noir Oregon $10
  • 2013 Chateau Allegret, Bordeaux France $11

The first thing I spot is Save Water Drink Wine which is identical to this at Chez Napolèon … hmmm … plagiarism -:)

Ivanka Trump is just here, out of a limo and into the building. The merchant ship Peking is being restored elsewhere.
