Great Bacon infused Vodka at North Fork Table and Inn...
One of Mark and Lynn's favorite places is North Fork Table and Inn. The owners, the Mraz' are great people and they always make things interesting. Recently, during Restaraunt week one of NFTI's offerings was a great drink with bacon infused vodka. Bacon flavored vodka is available, but it is an acquired enough of a taste to keep it from being a trend (maybe a cult concoction but that might be it).

Peconic Bay Winery has a nice Chardonnay-(Please don't call it "oakey")
We recently went to the Peconic Bay Winery near us on and enjoyed some of their award winning wines, most notably the 2007 Steel Fermented Chardonnay which was had a nice warm feeling on a crisp late afternoon/early evening. According to the vineyeard's website the wine has flavors of orange peel, tropical fruit and pear. The orange peel flavor made it nice and appropriate for the fall. The winery is also emphatic in mentioning that the wine "has never seen the inside of a barrel" (I am paraphrasing). This is in line with the fact that oakey Chardonnay is not much in fashion (Chardonnay isn't either, but that is neither here nor there).
Nonetheless, despite all of this fussy PR, the wine was very good and the day and early evening was clear and beautiful.

Porters bartender Jamie is a new M & L favorite...
We enjoy restaurants as much for the personalities there as anything else (or don't enjoy). Jamie, a smooth bartender at Porter's On the Lane in Bellport has become one of our favorites due to her soothing manner, skill with a dirty martini and knack for remembering our favorites at this new Bellport mainstay...
