Long Island is known for its elegance and prestige. It’s home to one of the most renowned beaches in the country, beautiful wine vineyards, PGA-quality golf courses, historical museums and estates, and of course — the Hamptons.

Much like the rest of Long Island, there are incredible fine-dining restaurants for travelers and residents alike. Here are the top three restaurants on Long Island for fine dining.

Located on the south shore of Long Island, Patchogue offers great accommodations for travelers. While you’re staying here, you will appreciate the simple yet delicate dishes at Chachama Grill.
