Meanwhile, in The Rockaways

rockawayrestaurants.jpgDespite taking a hit from Hurricane Sandy, the Rockaways now has a solid year-round dining scene. Since the storm, old favorites like Thai Rock have reopened, a handful of new places like Uma's and Playland Motel have debuted, and a few more are still on the way. This is a big change from the early 2000s, when Rockawayist says, "the restaurant scene could best be described as utilitarian." [Rockawayist]
