There are a few worthwhile restaurants, congregated on Park Avenue just west of the train station, or on Beech Street, west of where the beach ends. Billy's Beach Cafe, 222 Park Ave. (tel. 516/889-2233), has good burgers and wings, and the kitchen stays open late. Fresco Creperie, 150A E. Park Ave. (tel. 516/897-8097), serves delicious, affordable savory and sweet -- you guessed it! -- crepes, while right next door John Henry's, 150 E. Park Ave. (tel. 516/897-9551), is a good old-fashioned pub with traditional pub fare. Both the cuisine and the decor at Duke Falcon's, 36 W. Park Ave. (tel. 516/897-7000), span the globe, and it takes a while to sift through the zillions of entrees that include everything from Italian and Japanese dishes to a delicious Chilean sea bass. Finally, you'll find creative Italian cuisine at the intimate Caffe Laguna, 960 West Beech St. (tel. 516/432-2717).
