Who Serves The Best Lobster Roll on Long Island?

The return of summer means not only beach season, but it’s also time to sink your teeth into a delicious lobster roll made at one of Long Island’s many fabulous seafood restaurants.

But which one is best? Long Islanders voted Jordan’s Lobster Farm the Best Lobster Roll on Long Island in the 2018 Bethpage Best of Long Contest. 

Some big food chains have introduced lobster rolls to their menus, but there’s nothing quite like one from a local restaurant. Lobster meat soaked in butter and served on a steamed hotdog bun makes the perfect lunch or dinner on the way home from the beach over the summer. And with so many delicious lobster rolls on the island to choose from, we can imagine this was a tough one for the public to vote on.

Family owned and operated for more than half a century, Jordan Lobster Farm carries on a tradition began so long ago by Bill Jordan and continued to this day by his sons. Jordan’s Maine Lobster Roll is a work of sheer beauty—thick, succulent crustacean with all the fixings snuggled comfortably between the halves of a soft, warm roll, accompanied by French fries and a pickle.

Long Island Press Wins 6 Press Club of LI Awards

The Long Island Press won a half a dozen awards Thursday from the Press Club of Long Island for news and entertainment coverage during the group’s annual gala at Woodbury Country Club.

The Press took home two first-place honors, three second-place prizes and a third-place award at the ceremony, which was dedicated to former Press Publisher John Kominicki and ex-Newsday columnist Les Payne, both of whom died in recent months.

“We thank the Press Club for honoring our former publisher’s impact on the region as well as our current writers for their hard work telling the stories of the Island we all love,” said Timothy Bolger, the Press‘ editor in chief, who also serves as a PCLI board member.

PCLI, the local chapter of the national Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), had another SPJ chapter judge the awards.

Winning first place in the health category was writer Michelle Gabrielle Centamore for her story, “Early To Rise: Creating a Brighter You,” a story about the benefits of waking up earlier. In the food and beverage category, writer Eric Voorhis earned first with “For Bridgehampton’s Ludlow Family, Cheese is a Whey of Life,” which profiled a local dairy farming family.

Also in the food and beverage category, beer columnist Bernie Kilkelly won second place for “Local Ales Keep The Home Fires Burning,” about local microbrewery’s winter beers. Press veteran Brendan Manley came in second in the travel category with, “After a Decade of Reinvention, Patchogue Once Again a Seaside Gem,” an ode to the revitalized South Shore village. And Bolger won second in the government/politics with “Scandal-Plagued Election Cycle Brings Historic Turnover on Long Island,” detailing the unprecedented number of executive-level county positions with no incumbents running for re-election last fall on LI.

Lastly, Bolger and his predecessor, Christopher Twarowski, won third place in the crime and justice category with “Who Is The Girl With The Peach Tattoo?” That story marked the 20th anniversary of the discovery of an unidentified woman’s remains, parts of which were more recently linked to the Long Island Serial Killer’s dumping grounds on Ocean Parkway.

What Is The Best Waxing Salon on Long Island?

Joann Donnelly’s bad reaction to getting eyelashes extensions done at a nail salon inspired her to become a certified eyelash technician and open a specialty shop to spare others the same fate.

Ten years later, Little Lash Boutique and Little Brow Boutique are recognized as the top spots where women and men go to put their best face forward, with their eyes — the windows to the soul — looking flawless.

“One promise I’ve made to myself, and to my fellow lash enthusiasts is to keep track of the condition of every customers natural eyelashes,” says Donnelly. “If they are looking weak for one reason or another, the customer is made aware and given choices. If action is not taken by the customer such as using a growth serum, changing materials, or taking a break, Little Lash Boutique puts customers on a ‘time out’ until the natural lashes are strong enough again.”

That stellar attention to detail is why the public voted Little Brow Boutique the Best Waxing Salon on Long Island in the 2018 Bethpage Best of Long Island competition.

The company boasts being the first lash and brown bar on LI, well before that even caught on as a term. The boutiques’ team of licensed professionals, makeup artists and all-around beauty perfectionists go above and beyond the cookie-cutter approach to eyelash extensions and brow services offered elsewhere.

Here, clients have access to an array of curvatures, diameters, and 15 different lengths of eyelash extensions that the staff ensures are always in stock. The licensed estheticians also share with their clients’ details of the materials involved, the human lash growth cycle, how to avoid infections, and the proper application methods.

These self-described eyebrow regrowth specialists are committed to fully mapping, measuring, and mastering each set of eyebrows that walk through the door. That is, this is not the place to go for anyone looking for a quick brow shapeup or having lash extensions slapped on in a jiffy. This crew puts in the time necessary to ensure each customer walks away satisfied, without a single lash or eyebrow hair out of place.

Their most popular treatment, the eyebrow sculpt and tint, is ideal for those re-growing their brows and creating a fuller, denser-looking eyebrow. They also offer eyebrow extensions, body waxing, facials, and Keratin lash lift services. Technicians can also recommend top-quality beauty products and Juvederm injectable treatments for clients.

With friendly and reliable customer service, the Little Brow Boutique looks forward to welcoming you as one of their many return customers.
