New Burger Joint In Town

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on July 24 to celebrate the grand opening of Sid’s All American, the burger and ice cream joint located at 80 Glen Cove Ave.

 

Owner Ross McCalla has redesigned the site in a loving tribute to his grandfather, Dr. Sidney Canarick, a life-long dedicated member of the Glen Cove Community who passed away in 2007 at the age of 90. 

 

“My grandfather was an exceptional man,” said McCalla, “and he was a remarkable athlete. Naming Sid’s after him was only fitting since we are located by the ball fields.”  

 

In addition to his fame as an athlete, Dr. Canarick had been a city lifeguard, an active member of numerous Glen Cove organizations and a member of the Recreation Commission for many years. He served as the dentist for the Glen Cove School District and was also the sculptor of the unique weather vane (currently under repair) that graces the top of the firehouse.

 

Members of the Canarick family, including Dr. Canarick’s wife Jean, joined McCalla as Glen Cove Mayor Reginald Spinello, Councilman Michael Famiglietti and State Senator Carl Marcellino officially welcomed Sid’s All American to the neighborhood.   Mayor Spinello presented McCalla with a certificate and thanked him for all the time, talent and hard work that went into opening a business.  An avowed ice cream connoisseur, the mayor has already tried Sid’s ice cream and has declared it “the best vanilla by far.” 

 

In addition to hard and soft-serve ice cream, Sid’s offers a full compliment of All-American favorites including burgers, hot dogs, cheese steaks, chicken sandwiches, salads, fries and shakes.  

 

“We really worked on the menu,” said McCalla, noting that he and Chef Danilo Zaldivar continued to try out various options until everything  was “just right.”  

 

McCalla hopes that Sid’s will become known not only for its good, fresh, made-to-order food, but also for the “perfect customer experience” he and his staff strive to provide.  With the addition of the colorful red and white tent, outdoor dining space has been increased and plans are underway to continue to provide a family-friendly atmosphere. 

 

“We are exploring the idea of outdoor movie night, as well as being able to provide a space for birthday parties,” said manager George Harvey.

McCalla, Harvey, Zaldivar and all the wait staff are local Glen Cove residents. 

 

“It’s a real neighborhood place,” said McCalla. “I want people to think of it as a kitchen away from home.”

 

“This location has a great history in Glen Cove,” remarked Councilman Famiglietti, “and it gives me such pleasure to drive by and see the sign for Sid’s and know it is associated with one of the most respected and generous families in Glen Cove.”  

 

As Jean Canarick watched her grandson share ice cream with the crowd who attended the grand opening, she said, “Sid would be very proud of him.”

It was the second annual goal setting workshop at Glen Cove High School on Tuesday, Oct. 14 and both the board of education and the public came up with some sound ideas for the district. School Superintendent Maria Rianna presented a slide show of four main areas that are the focus of district goals.

 

“We began this process last year and these goals are representative of what the community wanted to see,” said Rianna.

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.”
