Old Is New At Old Fields
By The Foodies./ email@example.com
A longtime fixture in the Greenlawn
community and regional steakhouse attraction, Old Fields Restaurant
has come back with a bang under new ownership.
The old Greenlawn standby was established in 1956 and was
famous for its marinated steaks. The closely guarded recipe
came with the restaurant when Huntington restaurateur David
Tunney bought the place last year. After a top-to-bottom renovation,
the restaurant opened in time for the holidays and has since
hit its stride.
Tunney, who with his brother John is a founding partner of
Huntingtons Honu and Besito restaurants, returns to
the simple life with Old Fields. The renovated interior has
a ring of familiarity, but is brighter and more welcoming.
The welcome mat especially has been extended to families,
the clientele Tunney aims to please. Indeed, with no single
item on the menu priced more than $20, the restaurant is family
friendly. And theres pretty much something for everyone.
Starters include classics like spinach and artichoke dip,
French onion soup, chicken wings and BBQ pulled pork sliders,
along with dishes like Prince Edward Island mussels and stuffed
mushrooms. The list of burgers leaves your mouth watering.
The Greenlawn burger with bacon, cheddar and crispy onions
($13.95) is a crowd pleaser, while the flavors of the Davey
Gravey (beef burger between two grilled cheese sandwiches,
$14.95), Pulaski (barbecue, jalapeno jack and cole slaw, $13.95)
and The 56 Burger (original 55-year Marinade,
Swiss, sautéed onions, $13.95) practically popped off
The restaurant keeps to its steak tradition, featuring a marinated
strip ($19.95), filet mignon skewers ($17.95) and skirt steak
($18.95). Entrees are comfort food to the max, featuring classics
like osso buco ($18.95), Guiness beef stew ($16.95), seafood
risotto and house mac n cheese.
