Lunch in Greenport
We are going to Greenport in a couple of weeks for the day. We eat in Noahs because it's very good and one of the few restaurants open for lunch on Thursday. Is there any other restaurant we should try? We leave before dinner.
Is Catapano Farm open? Any farm stands open on either road? We usually go out on 25 and back on 48. (or vice verse) We're coming from Nassau county.
I read that they are but I'd call first if you aren't going to be going by the farm. There's another goat/dairy farm in Aquebogue, Goodale Farms, and it's on the Main Rd., north side, just east of Route 105. Just a little further is the only farm stand I have seen open on the Main Rd., Bayview Farms, on the right. I haven't been east on the Main Rd. further than Cutchogue in the last week or so but most farm stands out here don't usually open for anything other than plants until May 1st. Brieremere Farms has their outdoor farm stand open on the North Rd., they have had heirloom and green house tomatoes lately that are great for this time of year.
And Noah's will probably be your best bet, although Blue Canoe (was The Chowder Pot for years) is open 7 days all year for lunch and dinner and has one of the best lobster rolls around. In nice weather the deck is great, overlooks the Shelter Island Ferry, can't get any closer to the water.
Sounds like you know your way around out here but just for more info you might want to check out the recent post about A Lure's opening weekend, lots of us chimed in with our favorite North Fork places. Good Luck!
We love Bruce's Cheese Emporium and Cafe for breakfast or lunch.
Right now they are only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday but they will add Thursday soon.
Also, Blue Canoe is fabulous and a great outside eating experience if the weather is nice.
If you want low key creative Mexican try Lucharito's
Hellenic has been a long time favorite too. Excellent grilled fish.
Well I just found out some exciting news. Cavaniola Cheese is open in Greenport. So if no farm stands (and all I saw yesterday, besides Bayview which only had a couple of items, were a few signs saying Open May 1, don't know your exact dates) maybe go check out some world class cheese instead?
Oh and if you're coming out this weekend, don't forget the food truck extravaganza at Tangers Mall.
