A Taste Of The Gold Coast

The 15th Annual Culinary Delights provides a sampling of the best food in the area

Food vendors from all over the North Shore treated guests to a sampling of their best dishes at the Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce 15th Annual Culinary Delights, held Thursday, April 26, at the Glen Cove Mansion.

The elegant affair gave attendees the opportunity to try the menus of new restaurants and indulge in everything from the steak tips prepared by The Meat House in Roslyn, to the vegan salads and burgers offered by Sweet Tomato of Glen Cove. Baked goods, bananas foster crepes, and a selection of wine and beer were among some of the more decadent offerings.

Danny Gagnon, executive chef of DoraNonnie in Glen Head, and a contestant on season five of Top Chef, made a guest appearance to discuss his experiences as a chef. He had meatball lollipops as well as cream of carrot and sambuca soup shots available for tasting.

The event was very well-attended, and attracted more guests than in years past, according to Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Phyllis Gorham. Along with the guest appearance and some words from Mayor Suozzi, the event featured a 50/50 raffle and vendors exhibiting their wares. Many of the donations from local businesses helped to make the event such a success.

News

Glen Cove residents may see a 1.64 percent increase in the tax levy next year, the amount proposed at last week’s public hearing. Mayor Reginald Spinello and the Glen Cove City Council held an initial reading of the proposed budget for 2015, and will take final vote on Tuesday, Oct. 28, at the next city council meeting.

 

“It’s very easy for a first time mayor to raise the taxes and blame it on a prior administration, and that is not what I am doing,” said Mayor Spinello. “In the past three administrations there were budgets with increases of  almost 28 percent to down to 12 percent, but it’s a different time now...I think that the residents are certainly going to feel relief. I put together a budget...that I believe is fair and reasonable and a good budget.”

Richie Cannata may be best known for his song credits but his name will become a part of history this week. Cannata, a 28-year resident and business owner of Glen Cove, will be inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame on Thursday, Oct. 23 at The Paramount in Huntington.

 

As a member of the Billy Joel Band, the saxophone player was propelled to fame in 1975 when he joined the band and played on songs including “New York State of Mind” and “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant.”
