Strong Meatball

If asked, Michael Maroni, chef and owner of Maroni Cuisine in Northport, Long Island (or should we say "Strong Island"), would honestly be able to say "My meatball is stronger than your meatball." That's right folks! After beating Bobby Flay in a meatball showdown last year, it's official.  This meatball helps put the "Strong" in "Strong Island." 

Oh, but you say you're not a meatball fan? No problem because basically EVERYTHING is good at Maroni Cuisine. Fear not vegetarians, there's food for you too. 

We want to make this post perfectly clear. Eat at Maroni!

Be sure to get the tasting menu.  In fact, if you go on a Friday or Saturday night, you must get the tasting menu. It can run from $80 to $100 per head, but it's well worth it. You will taste all of Chef Maroni's best dishes including the kobe beef sliders, the ribs, the pasta, the eggplant parmesan, the seafood and the homemade sweets. If you want to spend slightly less (around $50.00 per head), but eat most of the same dishes, try going to Maroni for lunch instead. No matter when you go, make sure you arrive hungry because you will probably want to eat until the buttons on your pants pop open. 

But wait, don't go running out the door yet.  You'll need to make reservations at least 4 weeks in advance. The food is big, but the place is tiny. You can reserve your table by calling 631-757-4500 between the hours of 12pm and 4pm. Maroni is open Tuesday through Saturday for lunch and dinner. 

Just thinking about the utter deliciousness makes us salivate!

I like the meatballs, and everything else! This place has so many good dishes I cant even comment on them all.

This is definitely a good find.

You have a cool blogger name, cosi!

Though you need an accent on the 'i.' You know like this: così. The emphasis is on the 'i' in that word.

Probably more than you wanted to know. Anyway, very cool handle.
