Chef Peter Curcio's chicken scarpariello, on the bone

Chef Peter Curcio's chicken scarpariello, on the bone and served with sausages, peppers and fingerling potatoes, is a standout at La Cucina in Hewlett. (Aug. 18, 2012) (Credit: Barbara Alper)

The new La Cucina on Broadway in Hewlett is the new star of the Five Towns, says Peter M. Gianotti, citing its first-rate pastas, especially the bracing cavatelli with sweet sausage and tomato stew, finished with a scoop of cream ricotta.

In Deer Park, Cheap Eats critic Joan Reminick visits  Dominican Restaurant 5, a no-frills place with a steam table. The chicken soup, Reminick says, has great depth of flavor and is rife with hunks of poultry on the bone.
