Years of chasing the perfect surfing waves once led Danny and Jodi O’Donnell to Rincón, Puerto Rico, and specifically, a break named Tres Palms. When they found themselves returning to Tres Palms time and again, they knew they’d found something special—something that now lives on inside the O’Donnell’s restaurant of the same name. Overlooking the great South Bay, and offering a fresh mixture of land- and sea-based dishes, Danny and Jodi’s version of Tres Palms provides a brief island getaway right in Babylon Village. Or, as the Tres Palms website puts it, a chance to enjoy “fine dining in flip-flops.”
Though chef Luciano Di Rico refers to his cooking as "American Eclectic," he pulls culinary influences countries across the globe—from his ancestral Italy to Latin America to Asia. Luciano captains the kitchen at One Main Restaurant & Bar, where he folds local produce and fresh meats into the variety of creative contemporary dishes, including the braised pork and beef gnocchi lauded by reporters from Fire Island Tide Newspaper as "outstanding." The innovative chef also whips up an array of savory specialty pies, filled with gourmet ingredients like goat cheese and applewood bacon. To complement chef Luciano's eclectic dishes, the restaurant's bartenders dole out craft beers and inventive cocktails. Their guests sip glasses of fine wine at white-cloth tables, bathed in the warm glow of soft lighting.
Numerous Irish counties lend their names to Lily Flanagan?s Pub's traditional Irish and internationally influenced meals, such as the Kerry corned beef and cabbage made with locally grown greens. The Galway Bay fish 'n' chips pairs beer-battered cod with chips that are cut by hand rather than lasers, and the Portrush pork chop flirts with the flavors of Italy with accents of sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, goat cheese, and bacon alfredo sauce.
It?s not just the food that transports diners across the pond, but the dark wood wainscoting and furniture topped with kelly-green padding. The bar pours foaming glasses of Guinness and Smithwick?s, perfect for slowly sipping while watching one of the pub's 15+ flat-screen TVs.
