The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene
Open in Stony Brook: Latitude 121 Coastal Grill
Latitude 121 Coastal Grill has taken over the Stony Brook Village space that, for years, hosted the Brook House. The restaurant, which shares ownership with The Oar in Patchogue, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Co-owner Lindsey Chalifoux said that in keeping with the site’s former identity, it also functions as an ice-cream parlor.
Helming the kitchen is James Cavorti, who cooked at George Martin’s Strip Steak in Great River. On his menu, at breakfast, you’ll find a vegetable Benedict ($12), tortilla Espanola frittata ($12) and buttermilk hot cakes ($9). For lunch, there’s a BLT ($12), lobster roll ($18) and a Cubano sandwich ($14). Dinner choices include mini pork wings ($14), a wedge salad ($12) and lobster thermidor pot pie ($28), as well as a seafood stew ($32) and filet mignon ($32).
Latitude 121 Coastal Grill is at 121 Main St., Stony Brook, 631-675-9263.
