The much-loved Kitchen A Bistro, 404 N. Country Rd., St. James (tel. 631/862-0151), which moved to this location in 2008, turns out impeccable New American fare. The acclaimed Mirabelle, which reopened in May 2009 at the Three Village Inn, 150 Main St., Stony Brook (tel. 631/751-0555), continues to serve some of the island's finest upscale French cuisine. The pubby, atmospheric Canterbury Ales Oyster Bar & Grill, 46 Audrey Ave., Oyster Bay (tel. 516/922-3614), is the perfect place for a beer and a burger -- and, of course, fresh oysters. For friendly roadside dining -- and lobster rolls -- try The Shack, 1 Stony Hollow Rd., Centerport (tel. 631/754-8989).
