It was nice to go on an old fashioned date with my husband in town. Dinner at Thyme in Roslyn was perfect. The restaurant was packed on a recent Friday but we snagged a table and caught a movie at Roslyn Theater. We saw Slumdog Millionaire, with surround-sound and comfy, new seats. This movie won four Golden Globes and is a must see for everyone.
To see and be seen locally, the always popular Bryant and Cooper is a longtime favorite and the steakhouse fare cannot be beat! Plus, on busy nights, the takeout is in a league of its own.
Toku has a zen, city vibe - very sophisticated; fantastic for martinis and sushi.
We went to Barney's in Locust Valley with some old friends. The fire roared, the food was great and it was very cozy on a very cold, winter night.
