There is no shortage of restaurants with American and continental menus in Nassau and Suffolk counties, but what is the best American/Continental restaurant on Long Island?

Long Islanders voted Mercato Restaurant Best American/Continental Restaurant on Long Island in the 2022 Bethpage Best of Long Island contest!

Mercato has made a name for itself in the Long Island dining scene. There are so many American/Continental-style restaurants in the region – so why Mercato? Owners Brian and Keleigh, Executive Chef Matt, and the Mercato staff have made the eatery all about providing guests with a great dining experience. With both Italian and American influences, Long Islanders know that Mercato’s savory dishes, such as flatbreads, burgers, pastas, and delicious entrees, will pair stupendously with wines, cocktails, or other alcoholic beverages. Plus, the restaurant offers “mercato,” or “market”-fresh salads and uses fresh, local ingredients for all their dishes. Mercato also offers daily specials, so check the website and plan to eat out at the restaurant everyone’s talking about!

Mercato Restaurant is located at 4958 Merrick Rd. in Massapequa Park. It can be reached at 516-308-3582
