Apr Welcome Spring at the Best Outdoor Dining Spot on LI

Now that it’s finally starting to feel like Spring, we’re all looking for a reason to get outside. The perfect place to enjoy warm weather is Long Island’s East End, because our breathtaking scenery is unlike anything else you’ll find on the Island! Bistro 72, everyone’s favorite Riverhead restaurant, has officially opened its doors to outside dining for the season, and we can’t wait for you to come down and indulge in a locally-sourced meal in the comfort of our fireside patio.

The distinctive, contemporary dining experience that Bistro 72 provides is a casual yet elegant way to enjoy the best of what our region has to offer. Our menu changes by season to showcase the cream of the local crop, using homegrown ingredients from neighboring farms and serving wine and spirits from nearby vineyards and distilleries, delivering a truly farm-to-table meal. Whenever possible we also offer natural and organic, vegan, and gluten free options, catering to all of our guests’ individual tastes. In the coming weeks, we’ll be unveiling our Spring/Summer 2014 menu—stay tuned!

As we all know, Long Island Winterfest Live on the Vine was an incredible success, but just because it’s over doesn’t mean that live music has come to an end at Bistro 72. Join us every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night to enjoy great local tunes. Between the fabulous live music, delicious local cuisine, cozy fireside and dazzling poolscape dining options, there’s no better way to spend a Spring evening than at Bistro 72.

We know that dinner is far from the only enticing aspect of Long Island’s gorgeous East End, which is why we provide several tour options for guests to experience a collection of the best vineyards, breweries, and distilleries on the North Fork. Our North Fork Uncorked Tours and Indigo Wine and Spirit Tours both offer a variety of locations for guests to choose from, tailoring your tour experience specifically to what you love most. Curious about some of the venues out on the East End?

Check back with us next week for a list of some of our favorite spots for Wine and Spirits tours on the North Fork!
