Riverhead New York : The Town of Riverhead is in Suffolk County, located on the Northfork of Long Island. The population is approx 33,000 and the town is on the mouth of the Peconic River, for which the town is named. Jeroen fell in love with Riverhead while driving through last spring. He loved the farms, wide open spaces and quaint farm stands. I (Keriann) was excited by the ocean,the wineries and the short distance to New York and Massachusetts (my home town)

Grana Trattoria Antica
Keriann's favorite place for Dinner! We recommend the Margarita Pizza, the roasted artichoke salad and the decaf coffee (from Bridgehampton's Java NAtion) which goes wonderfully with the homemade cookies and melted chocolate dipping sauce they bring you at the end of the meal....love,love,love!
Grana uses organic flour, Organic and locally sourced ingredients, Hand mixed pizza dough, Handmade mozzarella, Handmade pasta, serving the world’s finest and organic meats, fresh and cured. Pasta Menu changes weekly (sometimes daily) based on fresh ingredient availability (starts at 5). This is the basis of great Italian recipes and fine meals. True Italian cooking is based on three rules, ingredients, ingredients, ingredients.
We haven't had the chance to visit any yet but hope to after the tulip season is over. Feel free to share your favorite/s with us. Keriann used to work for and run the wine and food pairing event at DuCard Vinyards in Virginia and is looking for some good local wine to fill the void.
