is on a roll. Not only did they just open up their second
floor for private parties and dining on Friday and Saturday
nights, theyve just overhauled their menu. Allison and
Eddie Nobre went wild with imagination, adding new appetizers,
soups, salads and entrees, giving classic dishes a new spin
and bringing popular specials like their Fishermans
Stew to the main menu. If youre a regular, youll
have plenty of new treats to explore. If youve not been
there in a while, its all the more reason to stop by.

BACK-ROOM SALE: Chocolate season, so to speak, is usually
the cooler months of the year, but for bargain-hunting chocoholics,
July is prime time. Bon Bons Chocolatier (319 Main St., Huntington
village 631-549-1059) is opening up the back room for some
summertime bargains. Starting on Friday the 13th, owner Mary
Alice Meinersman offered up an assortment of candies and seasonal
merchandise an eclectic mix of fun things, as she describes
it at 50 percent or more off their retail price through
the end of July. Rack up $15 worth of purchases in the back
room and that entitles you to a 15-percent off coupon for
one item up front. Those coupons will be good through August,
she said. But to answer the most important question
yes, the chocolate smell is just as beguiling in the back
room as it is up front.
KASHI HEADS WEST: Congrats are in order for Kashi (12 Elm
St., Huntington 631-923-1960, kashijapanese.com) as the inventive
and eclectic Japanese restaurant prepares to open its second
location on Sunrise Highway in the village of Rockville Centre.
In the meantime, enjoy Kashi in your backyard and its $25
early dinner prix-fixe Sunday-Thursday as well as drink specials
at the bar during Happy Hour from Monday-Friday.
