plenty of good spots along both LI and the CT side all the way out to Greenport, Block Island and the sort.
Where are you thinking of living.

Hi. There is a place in Port Washington (on the island) called Manhasset Bay Marina/La Motta's waterside restaurant. They have great food and you'll be able to get to there from the city by boat. I personally know the owner and they have a nice lineup of boats, including 2 nice Cigarette's built by Aronow. Check it out sometime.

All great spots mentioned....... I keep my Sonic in Grover's with Vinny P. I have been to Fire Island a few times and it is a nice weekend destination, but if you looking for a nice spot to just tie up for the day, there are a few places west of Fire Island. My favorite is Short Beach just inside of Jones Inlet..... You enter the inlet and heading east it is right next to the coast gaurd station on your right. Barbecue's, docks, swimming, bathrooms, and only $8.00 to dock for the day...... plus you are only a 2 minute ride to the Nautical mile (Bracco's, the new Hurricane Harry's and numerous other restaurants). Or 10 minutes to Paddy McGees which is a nice restaurant that gets packed and loud on Sunday evenings......

Two more nice spots are Tobay and Cedar Beaches..... these are further east on the state channel..... more ammenities then short beach, but you are supossed to be a resident of the towns to dock on the weekends but anyone can dock on weekdays....... sometimes they let you stay on quiet weekends.

If you are living in the city, then Chelsea Piers is a nice spot, but its in water dockage.

La Motta's ----- GREAT FOOD ?
N O T

Their service is horrific as well ......... food is always cold and you wait forever to be served.

Louie's in Port Washington is much better and their food is GREAT

Just around the corner from LaMotta's

LaMotta's apps are nice...
Main courses are hit and miss.
But the friday/sat nights can be hopping w/ bands.
La Parma opened down from Louies, and may be building a dock... awsome italian.

If they are building a dock, that would be sweet. Right near my yacht club. Hows the food there?
