More Than 44 Reasons For This Bistro
By Leah, Alesa&
Bistro 44 in Northport is a casual place
with an upscale selection for either dinner or lunch this
The first reason this spot is perfect right now is the peaceful
outside patio, with tall umbrellas and ivy-covered wall providing
a cool oasis on the warmest of summer days.
Another reason is the seafood. The La St. Simone Oysters on
the Half Shell at market price are so fresh, you will wonder
if they were harvested only moments before. All of the seafood
at Bistro 44 appears to be just as fresh and appetizing.
The Bistro provides enough variety to please everyone. The
simple dishes like the Bistro Salad ($7) with Mesclun Greens
with Grape Tomatoes, Goat Cheese, Carrot Strings, and Sweet
Balsamic Dressing paired with Chicken ($11) or Shrimp ($14)

The Fresh Buffalo Mozzarella with Tomato Pesto and Hawaiian
Pink Salt ($8) is scrumptious. The pesto sauce, paired with
the roasted grape tomatoes and a drizzle of sweet balsamic
is a delicious topping to the fresh mozzarella.
Some of the entrees stir things up a little bit. One lunch
entrée in particular, a sizzling BBQ Duck Confit Sandwich
($11), consisting of slow cooked duck smothered in BBQ sauce
with sautéed onions and Asian slaw, is a twist on a
french classic that makes it a fun, summer meal any time of
The Sesame Seared Tuna with Soba Noodle Seaweed Salad, Ponzu
Sauce and Honey Wasabi ($13) is an Asian-inspired meal that
is such a crowd pleaser, it is on the lunch and dinner menu.
Come nightfall, the menu dresses itself up a bit and gives
patrons a wide range of options including a vegetarian entrée
of the day!
For starters, the Bistro 44 Ceviche ($13) is a combination
of shrimp, bay scallops and seasonal fish with cilantro, red
onion, lime and tomato sauce.
More delicious seafood items include the Corona Steamed Little
Neck Clams ($10) with Bacon and Scallion and the Avocado and
Crabmeat Appetizer ($11) with Spicy Mayo, Seaweed Salad and
The Grilled Niman Ranch Pork Tenderloin ($23) with Tomato,
Basil, Balsamic Compote and Mashed Potatoes; the Pan Roasted
Filet Mignon ($30) with Bleu Cheese Butter and Grilled Onion
and Mushroom Ragout; and the Papperdelle with Duck Confit
($19) peas, aged parmesan and tomatoes in a demi Bordeaux
sauce are all delicious dinner options ranging in taste and
