Beachfront dining in Mount Sinai for Memorial Day Weekend
Note to those casting about for a beachy place to dine this Memorial Day weekend: Cedar Beach Bar & Grille in Mount Sinai opens for the season on Friday, May 24. The tented outdoor restaurant is under the same ownership as West East Bistro & Wine Bar in Hicksville. Chef-owner Jay Jadeja will spend a couple of days a week in Hicksville, but when the weather is nice, chances are, he'll be at the beachfront spot.
On Jadeja’s New American menu: slow roasted wild boar spareribs ($12), Vietnamese crispy shrimp roll ($12), brined and grilled Berkshire pork loin ($24), pan seared sea scallops ($24) and an all-natural Wagyu burger ($14).
Live music will prevail Friday to Monday night and, at the height of the summer season, five nights a week. Parking is free to anyone after 3:30 p.m.; before that, it's only free to Brookhaven residents, costing nonresidents $20.
Cedar Beach Bar & Grille is at 1 Harbor Beach Rd., Mount Sinai, 631-928-1747, cedarbeachbarandgrille.com.
