Moved to Great Neck about 10 years back and started a discussion about the best food here (most people told me it was all mediocre). Found some solid places and meals worth trying, so I figured, in honor of my 10 years there - that I'd share them:
Seven Seas Diner - pancakes with strawberries, and my wife digs the chopped salad
Great Neck Diner - best diner in the area for breakfast
Antonino's - Pasta with olive oil and garlic, or their pasta in red sauce - both delicious
Santoor - on Union Turnpike - best Indian around, try the lunch buffet
Aunt Bella's - Penne a la vodka sticks to your ribs
Toskana - thin crust pizza with fresh garlic - super tasty!
Matsuya - Sushi
Lola - expensive but good food
Lima 33 - the chicken is well spiced and juicy, the rice and beans are flavorful, and the sachipapas are tasty
Bareburger - solid burger and fries
