Huntington is thriving when it comes to food. Just about every corner is home to a posh new eatery or concept. This growingly urban vibe Huntington was taking on was missing something though; an all day brunch spot that nailed the classics without a hefty price tag.
Cue The Shed.
Set away from the hustle of Huntington’s main drag, The Shed seems like a tucked away little treasure. Yet this is no hidden gem, both locals and traveling Long Islanders have all been taking refuge in the restaurant. Though quaint, The Shed does not lack a distinct ambiance.
“Every little corner of this place has a specific touch to it.” Co-owner John Tunney explains. “From the art to the behind the bar, I’ve sought to create an interesting vibe for each guest.” This game is no stranger to Tunney, a mastermind behind the iconic Besito brand.
What makes The Shed most interesting is its breakfast all day concept. Patrons can expect dishes like chicken & waffles with habanero Honey and burrata toast alongside a signature mac and cheese and filet mignon benedict.
Ingredient integrity is a big aspect of what The Shed is hoping to bring to Huntington. Even dishes like The Shed Bowl, a healthy combination of roasted chicken, wild rice, vegetables and goat cheese, adds a new element to the brunch scene in the area.
Those who seek a great bar experience can also find a home here. Hip bartenders are whisking up creative cocktails that cater to both the brunch menu and evening scene.
The takeaway from The Shed is simple: It’s a humble place where classics and signatures come alive in a big way. The comforting ambiance makes it a great choice for those seeking a no-strings-attached breakfast, lunch or dinner in the area. You won’t be disappointed.
