Even though there are two of them, Brandon and Rebecca Osman, make their presence at photo shoots subtle and unobtrusive. The duo adopts a photojournalistic approach as they capture indelible moments out in the natural beauty of their Long Island surroundings. They can create natural and striking images for engagement photo shoots and weddings.
At Four, chefs prep fresh Long Island edibles, which are under the influence of Asian-American flavors and techniques. Lunch and dinner menus include wonders such as tomato and mozzarella flatbread ($12), and crispy calamari with mango chutney, banana chips, and jalapeno cream ($15). Entrees include complex servings of pan-roasted black bass with hearty veggies and warm truffle vinaigrette ($24 at lunch, $29 at dinner), and a 12 ounce NY strip ($17 at lunch, $38 at dinner) with enough fried zucchini, horseradish, and green peppercorn sauce to make a taste bud retire, take up golf, and spend more time with his saliva glandchildren.
Founded in 1954 by James McLamore and David Edgerton, Burger King rapidly expanded from humble beginnings as a lone burger joint to more than 12,400 locations across 79 countries today, making it the second-largest fast-food-hamburger chain in the world. Its signature burger—the Whopper sandwich—consists of one to three flame-broiled, quarter-pound beef patties crowned with a miniature fedora and a fully customizable array of toppings such as tomatoes, onions, and dill pickles. Focused on continual improvement, the chain recently reinvented the fries that accompany each value meal, outfitting the spud slices with a thicker cut of potato for a fluffier texture on the inside and crispier golden-brown exterior. A spread of decadent desserts including dutch apple pie and an Oreo sundae keeps sweet teeth from elongating into fangs, and made-to-order breakfast sandwiches clasp eggs, american cheese, and bacon, sausage, or ham between two halves of a flaky croissant to round out the speedy menu.
Though it's nestled in the lobby of a Four Points by Sheraton hotel, Super's Cafe is no ordinary hotel restaurant. Because it takes its name from the nickname of Chris Pickford, one of the first firefighters to give his life rescuing survivors when the Twin Towers were hit, the eatery has much to live up to. Pastas get a personal touch with housemade bolognese and parmesan pesto, and entrees carry international influence, as seen in dishes such as the kung pao chicken and churrasco steak. Diners also bulid their own half-pound burgers by choosing from a range of ingredients, while inventive burger creations include Super's Blazing Hot, a blackened beef patty served with hot sauce and blue cheese.
Tucked in a quiet corner of the Holiday Inn, Bistro 46 serves upscale steak-house and seafood dishes in a sleek, elegant environment. At the central bar, lattice-backed chairs surround a marble countertop under several HDTVs glowing in a recess in the ceiling. Polished wood floors and silver-rimmed wall sconces fill out the dining room, and in the kitchen, Chef Ernie Herzog whips up bistro specialties such as Maryland jumbo crab cakes that once graced that state's official flag before Governor Spiro Agnew ate them all.
