Brasserie translates to “brewery” in the English language, but the English term is more commonly use for a fairly upscale high end bistro. These meanings come together inside the Inn at New Hyde Park, at a restaurant known as Brasserie 214. Serving a wide selection of European cuisine, this bistro also boasts one of the widest selections of beer lists on Long Island.
“Brasserie 214 came about in 2007, after extensive renovations to the Inn’s event facility,” said Restaurant General Manager Chris Anthony. “We feature many selections from Europe, including menu items from France, Northern Italy, Belgium, Germany, and Scandinavia.”
Brunch, lunch and dinner items include European style oven-baked pancakes, Old Amsterdam paninis and the Bavarian Alps sandwich, which features grilled bratwurst smothered in onions, Swiss cheese and honey mustard.
Dinnertime features prix fixe (fixed price) menus with lobster and mussels night on Wednesday, steak night on Thursday and seafood fest on Friday. Sundays are an All Day Oktoberfest from 11 a.m. to closing time with a wide variety of Bavarian specialties on the menu.
“Sunday is a big day for us and we have a lot of German fare including bratwurst, weisswurst, sauerbraten and all types of schnitzels,” said Anthony.
The beer selection at Brasserie 214 is extensive to say the least, with the full spectrum of craft beers on tap. There are Belgian beers, Italian beers, German beers and small batch beers like Sam Adams Indiana Pale Ale. All of these are served at the restaurant’s modified oval bar, which is still in its original state since the Inn first opened in 1938.
Brasserie 214 is more than just high quality cuisine and imported ale choices. The bistro also features live music acts every Friday and Saturday night with local bands playing an assortment of contemporary, rock and dance music. The music usually begins at 9 p.m. and lasts until the early morning hours.
All special events including anniversaries, birthday galas, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and private parties are welcome.
Anthony took the position of general manager this past February, after transferring over from Runyon’s Seafood Restaurant in Seaford. He is a veteran in the restaurant business, with over 34 years under his belt.
“I want our customers to enjoy authentic dishes with modern gourmet twists,” said Anthony. “I want them to have a dining experience to remember.”
Brasserie 214 is located at 214 Jericho Tpke. in New Hyde Park. It’s open Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. The restaurant is closed on Tuesdays. For more information, go tobrasserie214.com

Peter Zuckerman is running as the Democratic Party’s incumbent candidate for 2nd District on the Town of North Hempstead Council. The Second District encompasses the villages in the Mineola area.
“Nine months ago, I was recommended by Supervisor Judi Bosworth and approved with bipartisan support of the Town Board. This has been a dream job for me,” Zuckerman told the
Mineola American, on explaining why he is running for office. “I had the pleasure of serving the residents of the incorporated Village of East Hills for 11 great years, but this job has given me the opportunity to expand the area I represent and, thus, the opportunity to be of service to a greater number of people.”

Running for his second major office in as many years, Adam Haber touched on familiar themes in a visit to Anton Media Group to discuss his candidacy for the Seventh District New York State Senate seat, where Haber is challenging the Republican incumbent, Jack Martins.
Haber entered politics in 2009, when he ran for and won, a seat on the Roslyn School Board. The district was then reeling from an embezzlement scandal that had cost it millions of dollars. Haber touted his achievements on the board, including bringing finances into line to the point where the district has seen the lowest tax increases of any district in Nassau County. Last year, Haber ran for the Democratic Party’s nomination to challenge Edward P. Mangano for the Nassau County executive’s race.

The Sewanhaka Indians varsity football team hosted Elmont Spartans on Saturday, Oct. 18 in its final home game of the regular season.
It certainly did not go as the Indians had hoped, falling 18-8, in a mistake filled game. Head coach George Kasimatis said the Indians had their chances, but kept digging themselves into a hole with mental mistakes on both sides of the ball.
Playing from behind, senior running back Brenton Mighty was able to break free for a long touchdown run, to put the Indians on the board.
