Lynn and I had gravitated towards the North Shore of Long Island from our own home on the South Shore with the approach of the holidays. Our recent trip toe Old Westbury Gardens saw us take a releatively easy detour to Northport a charming village with genuine throwback charm, particularly appealing this time of year.
We took a chance on a restaratunt that we had noticed called Rockin FIsh. Rockin Fish seemed to us a kind of interesting combination of village pub and high end eatery (a gastro pub of sorts). There are plenty of pubs on Long Island and certainly plenty of high end joints but rare to see the twain connect.
It does here. I had a plate of great wasabi and lime garnished oysters ice cold and hefty (AKA "Oysters Samba") Lynn had Tuna nachos that were delicately plated with juicy hunks of tuna and were not the huge mass of goo and cheese that you typically find in restaurants.
The design was hip and low key with whimsical touches such as a neon anime/cartoonish looking fish hovering on the wall near the bar.
Lynn and I will definitely be back as we are particularly interested in the generous happy hour with $1 Oysters on the Half Shell....M&L
