3 New Restaurants to Try on Long Island

The Cuban is one of the many options at I Heart Mac & Cheese

PDQ

PDQ, or People Dedicated to Quality, is opening its first location in New York after a longtime stance in Florida, with other locations scattered across the country.

The restaurant will offer dine-in, drive-thru and catering options as well as many different sandwiches, salads and bowls made to order. The menu features a variety of meats and menu items free of hormones and steroids. Its goal is to take away the harmful additives  to add to the flavor and quality of the food.

There are many different sandwich options all served on toasted brioche buns, including popular favorites such as the pimento crunch and the grilled hawaiian sandwich ($5.99-$8.99).

PATRIZIA’S

Brothers Giacomo and Gennaro Alaio, who brought the taste of Italy to New York, recently opened the latest location of Patrizia’s in Hauppauge.

Using family recipes that date back 150 years, they crafted a menu full of Italian favorites. This includes a family style dinner feast for $50 per person that consists of seven appetizers, homemade pasta, three entrees, homemade desserts, and coffee, as well as unlimited domestic beer, house wine, sangria, and soda. There’s bound to be something for everyone.

The menu offers gluten-free pasta and pizza as well so all can enjoy. To finish it off there is a generous dessert menu including Patrizia’s special dessert, a puff pastry filled with Nutella ($6).

I HEART MAC & CHEESE

This Florida-based fast-casual restaurant chain offering a customizable menu of build-your-own mac and cheese recently opened its first restaurant on Long Island.

The menu offers many new takes on beloved oldies. Chef specials include the lobster and white truffle mac and another fan favorite, the best of both worlds. This baked mac-and-cheese-filled sandwich contains slow-cooked short rib, white Cheddar cheese, American cheese, and barbeque sauce. There are many other chef specials so patrons can choose toppings for mac and cheese or grilled cheese as well as the build-your-own section of the menu.
