Best Portugese bar none!

In Jim Leff's book, he raves about Little Portugal in
Mineola, but if we're talking Portugese cuisine, the
only place to take seriously is, (and I am about to
butcher the spelling) Lehraire. It is located not too
far from Little Portugal on Jericho Turnpike, just
east of Willis Avenue. They opened a sister restaurant
called Atlantis on Mineola Blvd, which has since
closed down. The soup, calde verde, a Portugese
specialty consisting of kale and potatoes with a hint
of chorizzo; and their marischada (again, spelling--
sorry), which is assorted shellfish cooked in green
sauce or a red sauce if you request it. I will try to
get the real spelling and post it as soon as I can
unless someone else out ther may know it.
