We recently went to Riverhead for a wedding and ended up eating at Bistro 72, a restaurant a serving farm to table menu located in the Indigo Hotel. First I should mention that the access is better by car than walking...I know: we made the mistake on our way, as true New Yorkers, but not on the way back to the hotel! Secondly, as soon as you enter the restaurant, you get the feel that it is in a hotel, from the decor to the atmosphere. But you know what, the food there was quite good!

Mediterranean plate, composed of tapenade, hummus, tabouli, grape leaves and haloumi cheese. It was quite good, but I admit that I was surprised by the small portions.

Pan seared salmon, served with fingerling potatoes, local vegetables and a beurre blanc sauce. This was delicious, especially the salmon that was perfectly cooked and had a delightful crispy skin.

Long Island Duck Breast, served with local vegetables, mushroom risotto and a raspberry Demi-glace. It was really good, although the risotto made the dish heavy. The duck was quite good, even if I would have preferred it more pink.

Last was dessert. We went for the banana brûlée. On that one, I should have read the description as I thought it was a banana crème brûlée. It was in fact just caramelized bananas served with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and candied nuts. Still good though.
