The North Fork's Best RestaurantsOne of the things we’re most commonly asked about by guests of our Long Island B&B is which are the North Fork’s best restaurants? It’s a hard question to answer: Long Island’s North Fork is speckled with great places to eat in a wide range of styles, and choices, often with an emphasis on fresh, local seafood and wines.
Choosing just a handful of restaurants from the many excellent, Long Island dining establishments wasn’t easy. We used the results from a recent, independent, online poll of the top 10 North Fork’s restaurants, and posted them here, alphabetically, for easy perusal.
Of course, any “best of” list is bound to be controversial. If you don’t see your favorite here, console yourself with the knowledge that there simply isn’t room enough to list every great restaurant on Long Island’s North Fork – and that’s a wonderful thing all in itself!

The Frisky Oyster remains one of the best restaurants in Greenport, Long Island.  Opened in 2002, the Frisky Oyster is a trendy restaurant which is sure to please everyone.  This modern restaurant is a little piece of Manhattan in Greenport.  Many visitors to the North Fork come for the small, lively bar and contemporary fare, such as seared foie gras atop roasted pineapple and mache, and penne with pancetta, littleneck clams, leeks and tomatoes.   Of course, this is just the beginning and the complete menu has a great variety to choose from.
So what are the patrons saying?
“Phenomenal!! Food was outstanding- creative, complex, fresh flavors cooked to perfection (all except the Truffle Fries). Atmosphere was romantic, and the service was excellent. We will definitely go back!!!”
“Well prepared, imaginative food, in a sophisticated room. Don’t miss the Oysters Friskafella or the Chocolate Pot de Creme. Very attentive, friendly service. Usually vibrant with an interesting mix of customers. Just sold by Dennis to Robbie, who has been the chef.   Much of the staff still in place; still the North Fork’s best restaurant.”
Reservations are highly suggested and the Arbor View House Bed and Breakfast will be happy to assist their guests in making sure that they do not miss out on this hip restaurant for dinner!

When thinking about the wine of North Fork of Long Island, also remember to think about cheese.  One of the favorite cheese shops on the North Fork of Long Island is the Village Cheese Shop in Mattituck.  The choices are amazing and with over 100 cheeses to choose from, it may take a little time to make your decision and they will be sure to assist you along the way.
The Village Cheese Shop was opened in 2001 and they feature cheese categories including French, Italian, American, Spanish, Dutch, English, and Swiss.  Then, there are multiple cheese options under each category.  Take it a step further and you can order sampler plates or cheese fondue which is served in a crock pot with chunks of crusty bread for dipping.  Yum!  I think that I have died and gone to cheese heaven!
One of the most popular cheese plates, the Twin Forks, includes Atlantic Mist, soft ripened cows’ milk cheese, and honey lavender goat cheese from Catapano’s Farm.  The plate includes fruit, chutney, and bread toasts.  Everything you need for a romantic picnic or sit down and enjoy it at the shop.
Here’s to the wine country’s cheese shop!

Noah Schwartz is a native Long Islander and a graduate of New England Culinary School. He worked for over seven years in California’s wine country and then made his move to long Island North Fork Wine Country.   He spent several years at the Sea Food Barge and when that closed he took the opportunity to open his own restaurant.  He has experience in opening restaurants and this one is very special to him, as it is his own. Noah’s in Greenport.  Noah will bring to Noah’s, a culinary experience enjoyed in California and he is already receiving positive feedback from his customers.  Recent reviews had customers raving about the scallop ceviche and pomegranate ribs.  The sardines were quite a surprise and totally delicious as is the  Pulled Duck from the Crescent Farms in Aquebogue.  There are so many Oyster dishes  so that you’d think that he’d call the place Noah’s Oysters. Even though the menu is mostly fresh seafood, Noah is a master with Steak which  is done with Manchego Cheese and rich crispy onions, yummy.
The concept at Noah’s is to offer “small plates” at the top of his menu ranging from $6 to $15.  Thus, allowing his guests to sample multiple smaller plates and enjoying a variety of dishes.  The menu also features 2-3 oz. wine pours to accompany the small plates.  Of course, to balance this he will also have snacks on the menu beginning at $3.  Truly a delightful way to dine!
We have eaten there several times and recommended Noah’s to guests  who rave about the selections and love the ambiance and personal service. What we love the best are the small plates giving us more choices and the opportunity to sample several dishes.  Noah’s Restaurant is now the newest and  hottest restaurant in Greenport.

Noah Schwartz, former chef at the Seafood Barge in Southold, has opened a new Greenport restaurant, Long Island.  The restaurant is at the former location of the Frisky Oyster Bar on 136 Front Street and is called Noah’s.  As the Seafood Barge could not renew their lease, Noah quickly scouted the area and found that this location would be perfect for him.  Renovations were underway and now Noah’s is officially open.
