Looking for a new place to wine and dine, or maybe grab some dessert? Here are three new eateries that have recently opened on Long Island.

NORTH FORK DONUT CO.

NoFoDoCo’s handcrafted donuts have been a hit since the shop’s opening two years ago which is why another location has opened up in Bay Shore.

The donut shop sells daily classic flavors like glaze, cinnamon sugar, strawberry OG, vanilla OG, and chocolate OG as well as specialty flavors, caramel coffee cake, Boston cream, and black raspberry jelly ($3.50-$4). Additional flavors can be found on the weekly schedules on their website.

Currently, NoFoDoCo’s Bay Shore location is only offering in-store pick-up.

5 East Main St., Bay Shore, 631-298-7941, nofodoco.com

THE HARP & HOUND

This Irish-American pub and restaurant gets its name from Guinness’  harp emblem and the Irish wolfhound.

Known for excellent service and tasty appetizers, the restaurant serves up shepherd’s pie ($19.95), Irish chicken curry ($23.95), grilled lamb chops ($15.95), short-rib sliders ($13.95) or the hound burger, an 8-ounce patty with lettuce and tomato, served on a sesame bun ($13.95). You can also choose from French onion soup ($5.95) or potato soup ($6.95) and specialty cocktails.

The Harp & Hound is open 7 days a week, from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.

528 Main St., Islip, 631-446-4854, theharpandhoundny.com

HUNTER

Owner and chef Hunter Wells’ take on Mediterranean cuisine sets this upscale eatery apart from many others. 

Hunter serves a wide range of meats, Scottish salmon ($29), pan-roasted chicken ($28), duck ($34), and veal chop ($58), as well as sides, including ratatouille, saffron couscous, and snow pea leaf sauté ($10). Bring someone to dine with and share paella, rib steak or a rack of lamb from its meals for two ($42-68). For dessert, there’s something for everyone, from mini butter madeleines to pistachio parfait ($10).

Hunter is open for dining Tuesdays through Sundays, after 4 p.m.

1053 Oyster Bay Rd., East Norwich, 516-624-8330, hunterrestaurant.com
