ICE CREAM: Childhood memories may be awakened for
some by the name of Sedutto’s Ice Cream. The extra rich,
delicious creation began in Staten Island in the 1920’s
and has finally come to Huntington. Across the street from
the movie theater, set back at 52 Wall Street, Sedutto’s
has just opened in time for the warm months. We’re betting
the popular ice cream parlor emporiums that dot Manhattan
will become a favorite of locals here. Try their mint chocolate
WINE & DINE: Pairing
fine wines with fine dining is hardly a new idea. But Indigo
Restaurant in Huntington adds a new twist to the concept with
a May 4 event celebrating the wines of Bogle Vineyards. For
$75 a person, diners at Indigo will enjoy a five course meal,
each paired with a specially chosen Bogle wine. The evening
will also feature Bogle’s Robbie LaBlanc, an award-winning
musician and guitarist who – between songs – will
share his knowledge of the Bogle wines being served. For a
peek at the menu, go to indigoamericangrille.com; to reserve
a place, call 631-424-7757.

MICHAEL ROSS: Fans of the
former Fiddleheads of New York Avenue can find chef/owner
Michael Ross mixing his magic at The Wreck in Port Washington.
Ross is the head chef at the restaurant owned by the group
that owns The Woodlands, The Mansion at the Woodlands on the
Oyster Bay Golf course, H.R. Singleton’s in Bethpage
and Thom Thom’s in Wantagh. The executive chef of the
group is Tom Shaudel of Huntington’s Rockfish and Syosset’s
Coolfish. The Wreck offers a wonderful variety of creative
fish dishes. Go visit old friend Michael and tell him The
Long-Islander Foodie sends regards.
BESITO, the new Mexican
eatery by the Tunney boys of Blue Honu just hit the jackpot
with an “excellent” in the New York Times Sunday
Long Island Section. Times foodie Joanne Starkey, who is usually
stingy with her compliments, loved this one.
