Ask the average Long Islander what they think of when somebody mentions Smithtown and we’re almost positive the phrase “capital of international cuisine” doesn’t immediately come to mind.
But it should.
The Smithtown and St. James area is dotted with restaurants and eateries that represent more than a dozen different countries in the world, from France to Korea and Thailand to Cuba.
Over the next few months, Smithtown Patch will tell the stories behind these diverse restaurants, looking at what’s new with each of them as well as telling the stories of the people who run these local spots for international dining. Our first installation will publish on Wednesday.
In many cases, one country is represented by a host of eateries in town, which means everybody must have their own favorite spots. To help us kick things off, tell us, what is your favorite international restaurant in town?
Which profiles are you anxious to see?
