"Comfort food" is one of those descriptions that could make you lose your appetite. Maybe "homey" or "traditional" will do. No matter. It tastes good and demands nothing. Here are three establishments to satisfy the craving.

MIRABELLE TAVERN
150 Main St., Stony Brook
631-751-0555, threevillageinn.com

Guy Reuge's more casual restaurant at the Three Village Inn is an easygoing place to refresh yourself. Recommended: rollmops, or pickled herring with purple potato salad; pan-roasted scallops with curried cauliflower; fish-and-chips; steak frites.

BRICKHOUSE BREWERY
67 W. Main St., Patchogue
631-447-2337, brickhousebrewery.com

Local beer flows at this easygoing eatery, a popular stop for uncomplicated fare. Sample bluepoints and littlenecks, chili, beer sausages, beer-battered onion rings, wraps and sandwiches. Enjoy Toasted Lager and the seasonals.

PRESS 195
22 N. Park Ave., Rockville Centre
516-536-1950, press195.com

Nassau's member of the chainlet, this Press 195 is the right spot for toasted sandwiches and brews on tap. It's also a destination for Belgian fries, a plate of cured meats, tomato-olive bruschetta.
