We will be meeting a friend in Merrick for dinner this Sunday. I live in Manhattan and my experiences in Long Island restaurants have mostly been disappointing. I'm hoping to find something I will really enjoy. Our friend wants to try Sage Bistro in Bellmore, and I read a NY Times review of George Martin the Original, in Rockville Centre, that rated it an "excellent". Any opinions? Anything else in the same price range that you think is better?
