Main Street Patchogue: Restaurant Row

We recently headed to downtown Patchogue on a Sunday morning with the goal of having a nice Sunday brunch at a very popular restaurant called Toast. However, it seemed a few hundred other people had the same idea. Not wanting to wait an hour for a table, we decided that we would search for another restaurant. Not knowing downtown Patchogue too well, we were concerned that there may not have been many other restaurant choices. Our concerns were quickly put to rest when we noticed a restaurant directly across the street with its doors wide open. As we crossed the street, our peripheral vision caught glances of restaurants to both our right and left sides. What seemed at first like a lost cause because of the hour long wait, had turned into a myriad of dining choices.

We decided to take a chance on a restaurant called Public House 49 Bar and Grill. The restaurant had a large bar on the left, and a section of tables to the right.The Bar and Grill had two rooms that were separated by large garage doors. The doors were on tracks that probably allowed them to be raised late at night when the Bar and Grill turns into more bar than grill. The room had a variety of tables and booths. What we really enjoyed was the wide open wall that offered an open air experience to main street.

There were only a few items on the Sunday Brunch menu. We had an order of french toast with home fries and a grilled chicken BLT with french fries. The grilled chicken  came on a fresh bun with avocado, tomato, and hickory smoked bacon. It was an incredible fresh tasting sandwich and very filling. The fries were cooked in a fresh oil and were simply superb. The french toast was spot on with just the right amount of egg and butter, and cooked perfectly. The waitress was extremely friendly and very professional. The grill also offered a free mimosa with each meal. The rich coffee served came from the coffee shop next door called Roast. We probably drank about five cups of coffee with our brunch and yet our entire bill with tax only came out to twenty six dollars. We had heard the restaurant Toast across the street was a fabulous restaurant , but we were very happy with the experience we had at Public House Bar and Grill 49. We were even happier that there was no wait.

After leaving the restaurant, we decided to explore Patchogue’s main street. On every block we walked, we were met with restaurant after restaurant. While walking for a while,we discovered that one would be able to find a restaurant on Patchogue’s Main Street that would cater to any taste. From Goldbergs Famous Bagels and flagels, Arooga’s Grille House & Sports Bar, duck empanadas at Rhums, the great Brick House Brewery, Hoshi Hibachi, Meetball Restaurant, and so many more, the choices seemed to never end.
