Silence Falls On Hush… Hush Bistro on Gerard Street in Huntington village closed its doors earlier this week and will not reopen. Opened by Chef Marc Anthony Bynum in summer 2017 in partnership with Reststar Group, Hush had success serving up elevated southern comfort food. Bynum, who also opened MB Ramen on New York Avenue in Huntington with Reststar earlier this year, said he left Hush seven months ago because the partnership had “soured.” “I like to have complete autonomy with creativity when it comes to the menu, bar, atmosphere and service and they did not allow me to have this,” Bynum said. He opened Fatwood Southern Kitchen in Bay Shore in June. Back at the old place, a sign in the window at Hush thanked customers for their support, and said any Hush Bistro gift card would be honored at MB Ramen, Bistro Cassis or Café Buenos Aires.

Pray For Snow… Don’t let the winter weather stop you from having a good meal this holiday season. Tutto Pazzo Restaurant (84 New York Ave., Huntington) is once again offering its annual snow discounts, and if it snows, it’s worth braving the weather for these deals. When it snows more than five inches diners get 25 percent off food items on the menu. If the snow total exceeds 10 inches, the discount increases to 50 percent. If a blizzard dumps more than 15 inches of snow in Huntington this winter, Tutto Pazzo will offer customers 50 percent off food prices and a free buffet. You just might find yourself praying for snow. Find more information, or view the menu – including Tutto Pazzo’s $39.95/per person holiday party packages – at Tuttopazzo.com.
