WHAT BUSINESSES WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IN THOSE VACANT EAST END SPOTS? WHAT IS THE EAST END LACKING FOOD-WISE?

I asked this same question about the West End about a month ago (read: seabythecity.com/?p=24521). With new places such as Lost & Found and Grotta Di Fuoco, it’s safe to say that the West End is really becoming a foodie destination. Both of those places are pretty damn hip with rave food reviews. I was inside Lost & Found the other night and actually felt I was in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I didn’t get to eat there due to the crowd, but I am hearing their food is amazing.

Anyway, I’m going off topic here… I am curious to hear what you folks think the East End is lacking?

With the new Seasons opening, plus other places such as Brixx & Barley, I personally feel we are ok on the Asian food/ Italian Food/ Pub front.  What are we missing? And what are we missing as far as non-food is concerned?

  1. If I were to wish for restaurants to come to LB (and possibly help the east end with more variety) – I would love to see any one of these:

    1. Tapas place
    2. Steak place (a nice one – not a glorified pub)
    3. French inspired place
    4. Wine bar (a real selection of wines over various price-points with some appetizers sort of like Salumi/Massapequa)

    As for retail establishments outside of restaurants – both the East End and West End could use more clothing boutiques that cater to a wider range of buyers. We have some cute places here – but a lot of the offerings are club/weekend/beach/kitschy vibe – -what about clothes that appeal to those who have to get dressed for work each day (men/women) instead of having to drive to a mall or shop online?

    Even a consignment/resale shop would be great (RVC has a great one – “Lucky Finds” — shop owners is a pretty smart cookie – she has great pieces to choose from at a good price).

  2. A nice Steak House where you can get a decent Steak without spending your mortgage payment for a steak. Where you can take your wife or girlfriend out to withot the music blasting and the smell of pot

  3. By the way , I tried the new Asian placeast night an wasn’t to impressed, I thought it would be an authentic Chinese place but it was just snothe General Tos Chicken joint, with some Orerntal lanterns on the ceiling. Not at all anything special .
    I was very disappointed, I had hoped for more.

  4. I would love a Houstons style (Realizing they are to big for our little city) restaurant for the evening and a Maureens Kitchen (Smithtown) for the day… My two favorites. I was so hoping for one of them when Blockbuster went down and we got a CHASE bank instead. Boo hoo. And I would love to see an Italian style bakery like they have in Queens and Brooklyn. One can only wish…

  5. Maureen’s Kitchen is amazing. Imagine that with a weekend Jazz breakfast. I was hoping for a cool diner/restaurant/coffee/micro brew place where King’s pharmacy went, but instead we got a liquor/beer warehouse.
