Open in Wantagh: Fuscamos Bar & Grill
Barely a week old, the new Fuscamos Bar & Grill has moved into the Wantagh strip mall that last hosted the Half Full Tavern.
Although the place is owned by a few partners, it derives its name from two — manager Keith Amo and chef Chris Fusco. On Fusco’s menu: Gorgonzola steak tidbits ($10.95), seafood chowder ($8.95), a blackened chicken wrap ($11.95), shrimp scampi wrapped in bacon ($21.95) and a roster of burgers ($9.95-$10.95).
Some daily specials: $7 burgers all day on Tuesdays, wine flights and cheese on Thursday nights, Friday night DJ with sounds of the 80s and Saturday “date” night with wine specials and shared plates.
Fuscamos Bar & Grill is at 3037 Merrick Rd., Wantagh, 516-809-5100.
