Food Scene

Po’boys and Burgers. Chef Ouita Michel owns several restaurants and has been featured on TV. https://www.ouitamichel.com/ Smithtown is open 11am to 9pm. Our favorite dish at Smithtown is the Fried Oysters with Creamy Grits and Greens. We highly recommend the fried Silvercarp fish sticks with the homemade remoulade sauce. Yep...CARP—it’s delicious!
