Vauxhall and Bee-Organic, two operations we announced would be coming to Huntington village, have officially opened for business.

Vauxhall (26 Clinton Ave., 631-425-0222), run by the owners of Seaford’s rock bar, The Leaky Lifeboat, opened on Dec. 3. Earlier this week, on a mildly cool Winter Solstice eve, the dimly lit restaurant was crowded. Almost all the tables were taken, with a few customers at the bar. The idea behind opening the restaurant was to bring a missing hipster feel to Huntington , said co-owner and former hardcore rock music player Sal Magnino. “We saw this spot was open and we really wanted to do something cool and hip,” Magnino said. “And bring a vibe into the town like a New York City, Brooklyn vibe.” The Dec. 3 opening was not a formal grand opening, and Mignano said they may not have an official grand opening. He said the public’s reaction has been positive so far. Vauxhall offers a burgers, an assortment of craft beers and beers on tap as well as vegan options, like a black bean sweet potato burger. It has a late-night build-a-burger special that starts at 10 p.m. weekdays and 11 p.m. on weekends. The offer starts at $12 and increases in price depending on toppings.

Additionally, Bee-Organic (24 Wall St.,  631-470-1924, bee-organic.com), an organic cafe and juice bar offering breakfast, juices, smoothies, salads, wraps and veggie burgers, opened Nov. 29. There is also a location in Great Neck.
