• Gillis Poll had had his eye on the South Huntington property for years. And about a month after the TGI Fridays at the corner of Route 110 and Jericho Turnpike closed in January 2017, he and his brother-partner, George Poll, announced that they would be transforming it into The Bryant, their first restaurant in Suffolk County.

    • In the fashion of Armani and Prada, one size never fits all. That’s why Cipollini is the ideal Americana shopping center restaurant. It’s custom-made. Read More >>

    • The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene. The cuisines of Asia are very different, but sometimes they come together. Here are three restaurants that cross borders and create their own. Read More >>

    • When it comes to restaurateurs on Nassau County’s North Shore, Gillis and George Poll have a commanding lead. The brothers own a string of winners, which “bring an urban sophistication to Long Island” and keep diners coming back to their restaurants week after week, night after night. Read More >>

    • For Gillis and George Poll, success has been a lifelong journey; one that has catapulted them to places they always imagined. The prolific brothers have taken Long Island by storm, and do not plan on stopping anytime soon. They are in the business of food, and have a knack of doing the common things uncommonly well.

    • It had been years since I’d dined at Toku in Manhasset, the granddaddy of Asian fusion restaurants on Long Island. If the experience wasn’t quite as thrilling as my first, it was still a great dinner. The place looks like a few million bucks, the food is consistently good, the service top-notch. (Although I never have liked those white getups worn by the bussers; they look like attendants in a mental institution.) Read More >>

    • They don’t look alike, but you’d easily peg these two as brothers in a room of fifty guys. Partly because they share an imposing 6ft-plus stature and partly because they have the same manner of speech, but mainly because of some precious simpatico rarely found in other pairs, brothers or otherwise.

    • Hendrick Onderdonk hosted George Washington here in 1790. George and Gillis Poll are ready for everybody right now. The Poll brothers have transformed what was the creaking George Washington Manor into the Gold Coast's newest playground, a savvy New American showcase to satisfy the highest-decibel diners. Read More >>

    • Hendrick Onderdonk hosted George Washington. George and Gillis Poll are ready for you. Hendrick's Tavern, the Polls' savvy successor to George Washington Manor across from the clock tower in Roslyn, is the newest Gold Coast playground. To say the place has been transformed and rebuilt is an understatement. It now looks both contemporary and traditional, citified and country-like. Read More >>

    • WHEN Bar Frites opened in Greenvale in late April, it was instantly popular. Even in the first few weeks, diners calling for a weekend reservation two or three days in advance were left with a choice of 5 or 10 p.m. Read More >>

    • TOKU is a sleek, gorgeous new Asian restaurant with big-city sophistication. It opened in late August in the Americana Shopping Center in Manhasset, where Millie’s Place had been, and it fits right in with its fashionable neighbors: Prada, Fendi, Escada and Kate Spade. Read More >>

    • Toku slips between Loro Piana and Escada, two doors down from Prada and Fendi. It's a perfect fit. Stylized, polished and meticulously tailored, Toku is a sparkling new Asian restaurant in the Americana Shopping Center. But it's not simply couture cuisine. Read More >>

    • CIPOLLINI defines trattoria. This Manhasset newcomer, which replaced Payard, is not a fancy spot even though it is owned by Gillis and George Poll, who also run the nearby Bryant & Cooper, one of Long Island's best steakhouses. This is no ristorante with white tablecloths and hushed service. Read More >>

    • BREEDING tells, and the lineage of Majors, a straightforward neighborhood steakhouse in East Meadow, is obvious from the first taste of the creamy coarse-cut coleslaw to the final bite of intense, moist Mississippi mud pie. Read More >>

    • JAPAN'S legendary Kobe beef is now available on Long Island. The Bryant & Cooper Steak House in Roslyn is the only Island restaurant offering this exclusive grade of beef. Kobe or Wagyu beef, as the Japanese refer to it, comes from the world's most mollycoddled cattle. They drink beer and are massaged with sake. Read More >>

    • BRYANT & COOPER in Roslyn is a steakhouse with a difference. Its dual personality will delight those who normally shun beef palaces. But fear not, the red meat gang will definitely not be shut out. Read More >>
