Chicken Pot Pie at Cooperage Inn

Located on the “scenic route” along the north shore to Orient Point. This road is also the main route from the Orient Point Ferry and the vineyards of the North Fork area.  The restaurant is 3.5 miles from the Long Island Expressway and convenient to Tanger Outlet Mall, a destination for many shoppers. This charming country spot has quickly become a favorite.

Main-road-biscuit 2

Comfort food on the North Fork, refined. Buttermilk biscuits, house made jams, fried chicken, seasonal pancakes, from scratch baked goods and smoothies.

Sound View Greenport

We celebrate our region’s produce and bring it to your plate—direct from foragers and farmers, growers and fishermen. The team sources  ingredients from the North Fork and the Atlantic Seaboard, and serves them up in our light-filled dining room and sprawling deck above the Long Island Sound. 

Bistro 72 Dining Room

Bistro 72 is a casually elegant restaurant and lounge located in Hotel Indigo East End.  Bistro 72 brings you a distinctive contemporary dining experience on Long Island’s East End. Our cuisine seasonally showcases the finest locally grown ingredients and regional wines. We offer natural and organic options when possible, presenting a delectable menu of fine pairings and great flavors.

There's nothing better than freshly baked biscuits. The biscuits at @mainroadbiscuitco are outstanding! We ordered some with butter and marmalade sandwiched in-between and they were incredible.
