theRIVERHEADPROJECT gets an "A" from Mark and Lynn
Lynn and I had been circluing The Riverhead Project for awhile. As chic and upscale as Lynn is she has a knee jerk suspicion of chic, upscale eateries. I was more optimistic. The few times we stuck out head in the door peoplew ere inviting and friendly and the place was absolutely a beauty. Finally, we (Lynn) got up the will power to check this place out. I had dropped some issues off of a magazine I write for at an upscale fitness studio on Main Street in Riverhead and we were hungry so . . . .
We were greatly impressed. Our bartender, Zach, was very cool with his impossibly crisp pink shirt and made me the best Manhattan I think I have had on Long Island (maybe anywhere). Lynn had a stress reducing drink called a Tangerine Blosso whose main ingredient is Mandrian Blossom Vodka. As for the food, we managed to have a couple fo things that I had always been interested in trying: a grilled romaine salad and grilled oysters.
Lynn and I tried to take it all in but it was tough since the whole experience was so sensual. We are looking forward to going back and becoming regulars . . .
