Where to eat in or near Plainview and Massapequa, Long Island

Visiting for a long weekend and would like to escape some of our family events for some yummy meals on our own. Would like some great kosher style deli, Italian, breakfast, and nice fish restaurant for a party of 9. Suggestions with locations would be most welcome

  1. All American on Merrick Road in Massapequa is an old fashioned burger spot, reminiscent of an original McDonald's.

        Unfortunate recent report at Brasserie Cassis:

        As far as All American goes, I definitely have some fond sentimental memories about the place, but the food is nothing special. I always used to like the fries better than the burgers (which are unexceptional), but I don't know if I'd actually send someone there.

          It's been so disappointing to experience the slide from reliably wonderful to frequently mediocre, sometimes just plain awful, at the Bistro Cassis and Brasserie Cassis. Company culture starts at the top, and these places too often scream "we don't care."

      1. For breakfast, try one of these two:

        Nothing spectacular for kosher style deli, but pretty good choices are
        Regal Kosher Deli (1110 East Old Country Road Plainview), corner with Manetto Hill Road
        Boomy's Kosher Deli & Restaurant‎ (437 South Oyster Bay Road, Plainview


        Italian food isn't my thing so I can't help you there, and I don't know of any really good fish places in your area (that is, I know fish places, but nothing all that special).

          1. La Piazza, corner of Old Country Rd. and Manetto Hil Rd. in Plainview. Very good italian, and reasonable to boot. Our go-to Italian place and we live like 40 minutes away.
