Jordan Lobster Farms
1 Pettit Place Island Park, NY 516-889-3314
Short of a picnic, this is as casual as outdoor dining gets. The alfresco area is just outside the retail seafood shop. Recommended: steamed lobster and lobster rolls, fish and chips, crab cakes.
Lobster roll: At this lobster wholesaler by the water, you order your lobster roll at the counter and find a table or get it to go. The coral-hued salad is made with lobster meat, mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery and scallions, and comes on a toasted hot dog bun. Accompanied by a bag of chips and a pickle, it costs $14.95. Unless you're a purist who objects to scallions, this is a fine roll at a very good price.Hours: Sunday-Thursday: 9 a.m.-7 p.m.
