Will be heading to WESTBURY to see Glenn & Bill, anyone know of a good restaurant close by?? I love French food, I like lamb, veal, shrimp, duck, sweetbreads, frog legs, escargot, rabbit, foie gras. Anything fit this bill in that area?? Thanks

    There are 2 French restaurants I can think of nearby, both in Williston Park. One is La Marmite, on Hillside Avenue, about a mile or 2 west of Willis Avenue. The other is Oliver Bon Dinant, also on Hillside about 2 blocks east of Willis Avenue. However I'm not sure if Oliver's is still around. Also, last I heard it was byob. Both of these places should only be about a 15 minute drive to the theater.

        Oliver Bon Dinant is no more. The owner Oliver Leung who was Cantonese sold the place in '04. His escargots in garlic butter were excellent and the Croque-monsieur would have been a perfect thing to eat before a Bill/Glenn show. I find your wanting to dine on French cuisine before a Bill O'Reilly show ironic, but "Freedom Fries" seem to be a thing of the past. Good luck!

          Brasserie Cassis in Plainview is a very good bet and only a couple of exits east on the Northern State, off South Oyster Bay Rd. There's also Chez Noelle in Port Washington, but that may be a bit more out of the way. Wherever you go, bon appetit!
