Which restaurants are actually worth it? I live in Nassau, I don't want to travel too far east.

    I like Vittorio's in Amityville.

      I'd go with, Jackson Landing, Uncle Bacalas, Fishermans Catch, Mim's (Syosset) and Yuki's Palette off the list. IMO each of these places are worth it.

        I went to Mim's in Syosset. Just bad, plain bad. I ordered a pork tenderloin with a bbq glaze, which meant that a whole bottle of bbq sauce was dumped on each individual slice. The cream corned that came with it tasted like grease. My mother ordered the pecan crusted tilapia with cranberry orange compote, the tilapia was like any other "random item" crusted fish fillet. The compote meant some sickeningly sweet sauce. The combinations of sauce and meat in these two dishes were ill conceived comparable to matching salted cod and chocolate. The desserts were pedestrian, similar to desserts ordered at a diner. The portions were gigantic and presentation lacking. Suffice to say, I don't plan on going back.
