Gimme 2: One For
Now, And One For The Road
By The Foodies./ email@example.com
Why might one call their new restaurant Gimme 2? In this case,
its unbridled optimism.
Owner Mike Massetti, of Dix Hills, said the name came during
a brainstorming session with a friend on a possible name for
the shop. His goal, he said, was to offer customers a selection
of top-notch food so they cant help but say, Gimme
Their menu is diverse, ranging from Sabrett hot dogs
he was friends with the late owner of the hot-dog purveyor,
Gregory Papalexis to tacos, Reubens, Cubans, falafel
and everything in between.
We have a little bit of something for everybody, and
our prices are very good, he said.
Breakfast offers a menu of hearty rolls, bagels and wraps,
along with steel-cut oatmeal and omelets. Get a morning jolt
with fresh-ground, cold-brewed Georgios Iced Coffee,
made in Georgios famous coiling, slow brewing pots.
For later in the day, theres a selection of salads to
be had, and Mike tells us its a popular portion of his
Sandwiches of all sorts are right in Gimme 2s wheelhouse.
Check out the Brooklyns Best Reuben ($6.95), hearty
fare which combines rich corned beef and Swiss, sauerkraut
and sweet Russian dressing on toasted rye. Their Cuban Sandwich
($6.95 on a roll, $7.95 wrap/hero) is a true belt-buster,
packed with generous helping of roasted pork and ham, Swiss,
mustard and Devilish Dill pickles from Huntington
Stations Divine Brine. They start cool and sweet but
finish tingly and zesty, adding a new dimension to their Cuban
sandwich. His Sliced Filet Mignon Sandwich ($12.95) pairs
tender morsels of teak with melted mozzarella and onions on
Chicken salad ($5.95 roll, $6.95 wrap/hero) combines white
wine, celery and red onion for a simple, tasty sandwich, and
those in the mood for disco fries (or poutine, as our neighbors
up north call it) should look no further than the Gimme 2
Special Fries ($4.95), a plate crisp, flavorful fries mixed
with bacon, onion, sour cream and cheddar.
Have a sweet tooth? Fear not Gimme 2 has that covered
as well. Bubble tea a Taiwanese treat popular in Flushing
and full of tapioca beads that taste like gummy bears, but
not quite as sweet is a popular choice, Mike says.
Cookies and cupcakes galore are available via the Randa Bakery
in Ronkonkoma. And old-fashioned soda pop lovers can take
advantage of a selection of pure sugar cane sodas with no
high-fructose corn syrup. Thats something just about
anybody can say Gimme 2 to.
