12 4th Ave
Bay Shore, NY 11706
This mod venue in Bay Shore looks like a cross between a contemporary speakeasy and a French bistro. The menu changes seasonally, always offering a variety of small plates from salads to seafood and dry-aged meats. It’s hard to go wrong when ordering here, and there’s a clear emphasis on food presentation. During the summer, there’s limited outdoor seating and the chefs tend a garden for fresh herbs and produce. Suspender-clad bartenders are masters of their domain, specializing in updated classic cocktails and a stellar beer lineup.
