Tavern 18 Grills A Great...Everything

If you’re looking for a wide variety of steak choices or a hamburger with all the fixings, you will find it right around the corner at Tavern 18 in New Hyde Park. Located at 265-11 Union Tpke., right on the borderline of Nassau and Queens, the restaurant has been in business since 2009. Co-owners Roger Bajana and Vincent DiRico, who also own Luigi’s Italian Restaurant, have opened a place that serves familiar, hearty cuisine in a comfortable establishment.

 

“We serve some of the best steaks and burger choices around,” said Bajana. “We also have a wide variety of drinks and specials at our bar that a lot of other places don’t offer.”

 

Tavern 18 serves up an excellent prime steak accompanied with a port wine reduction and complimentary sides. They have specially prepared fresh seafood and you’ll need to bring your appetite for their famous charbroiled 10 oz. burger.

 

The bar menu offers a wide variety of craft beers and almost any kind of spirits ranging from scotch, whiskey and bourbon selections.

 

Happy hour, which goes from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., has many specials including 25-cent wings on Monday, $8 burgers on Wednesday and half price appetizers on Thursday.

 

Tavern 18 is especially popular with the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Hospital employees and staff, with the Hospital being located right around the corner from the restaurant.

 

Tavern 18 is open on Monday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., on Tuesday to Friday from 11 to 3 for lunch and 3-10 for dinner. On Saturday the restaurant is open from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. and 11-3 for brunch on Sunday and 4-9 for dinner.

The debate over New York State Common Core standards continues, with students from local school districts showing a mild resistance to the exams.

 

According to the New York State Allies for Public Education, 39 students in the Herricks School District opted out of the English exam, while 74 did not take the math test. For the New Hyde Park-Garden City Park School District, 17 students did not take the English test while 18 refused to take the math test.

At the Oct. 17 meeting of the Herricks Board of Education, Superintendent of Schools Dr. John Bierwirth discussed the recent investigation of students who have been illegally attending school in the Herricks School District, despite living in outer areas. Bierwirth said that 14 prospective cases were investigated and eight students were forced to leave the district.

 

Board of Education President James Gounaris said weeding out students who are attending school in Herricks under false pretenses is boiled down to one fact: it takes away valuable resources from the children of tax-paying members of the community.


Sports

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. 

Sewanhaka Indians Head football coach George Kasimatis told his team to expect a dogfight in this weeks game against the New Hyde Park Gladiators, and he was right after its 35-21 victory last week. 

 

“All the kids know each other really well, it’s always competitive when we play each other,” he said.
