I was a lucky girl this year for my birthday able to spend it with friends and family at Maroni's, a restaurtant located in Northport, NY. The meal consists of around 20 or so courses and includes as much wine, beer or soft drinks as you would like. The food and atmosphere of this place is amazing. You are surrounded by rock and roll memorabilia and Led Zepplin playing in the background. The decor couldn't be more perfect for my rock and roll loving husband. What could be better than listening to his favorite music, surrounded by pictures of rock legends while being fed 20 courses of food for 3 hours? It was a perfect night with perfect company and great food. I hopefully will be celebrating many more birthdays at this restaurant.
The pictures below are some of the courses we had the pleasure of trying. I will post a recipe this week of the Portobello mushroom with Gorgonzola that I recreated at home (one of our favorite of the night). I would definitely recommend trying this place. It is expensive at $125.00 per person but for a special occasion, I would say it is well worth it. I also have to add that they are accommodating to food allergies. You may not be able to taste everything but they will try to substitute when they can. I'll admit that I have a gluten allergy and I couldn't resist tasting everything. They did give my gluten free pasta, which was the BEST I have ever had!
