At The Dish in Stony Brook Village Center on a recent winter afternoon, a hearty beef chili was one of the soup-of-the-day offerings. Here's why we'll come back for more.
The Dish: Beef Chili with Spinach Salad ($9)
What's Inside: A traditional, hearty beef chili accompanied by a soft whole wheat roll, together with a side of crisp spinach salad featuring roasted red peppers and topped with balsamic vinaigrette.
Eat this Because: Simply put, it's cold outside. The classic chili will warm you up inside just like comfort food ought to do, the roll is just right, and the spinach salad rounds out the meal in a healthy fashion.
Side Dish: The Dish offers nearly a dozen flavors of chips and other snacks, and chances are there will be at least one that suits your preference.
