The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene
Toast and Co. in Huntington launches "brinner"
Brinner is now being served at Toast and Co. in Huntington.
In case you're unfamiliar with the term, it means breakfast for dinner. The unconventional meal is being offered from 4 to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday by chef Darren Calica who, a couple of years back, did a brief dinner stint at this casual breakfast and lunch spot.
On Calica’s new menu are omelet “stuffers,” thin crepe-like omelets whose fillings are rolled inside. Among featured fillings are truffled wild mushrooms ($16.95), short ribs ($15.95) and Philly-style seared marinated skirt steak ($15.95). You can also get Calica’s signature French toast-style chocolate yogurt loaf cake topped with strawberries, Grand Marnier whipped cream and Belgian chocolate drizzle ($14.95) as well as three styles of burger ($13.95), naan breakfast pizza ($12.95), a steak and egg skillet ($21.95) and a BLT salad ($12.95). And, if you really must have dinner for dinner, an entree of chicken piccata over pici pasta ($18.95).
The affiliated Toast & Tapas Neighborhood Bistro in Syosset (4 Berry Hill Rd., 516-364-0516) is not doing “brinner.“ Instead, chef Zane Smith features tapas, salads, burgers and entrees Thursday to Sunday nights only.
Toast and Co. is at 62 Stewart Ave., Huntington, 631-812-0056, toastandcoeatery.com.
