Good food, good service, good music, and Friday night ladies can grab free late night drinks at the bar from 10-11...we just found your new favorite place to kick off the weekend in style. You're welcome.
Kashi in Syosset turns out to be much more than expected from a glance at the exterior. Taking up residence on Jericho Turnpike this unexpected lounge-restaurant hybrid certainly deserves some praise, and recognition. While its equally noteworthy location in Huntington generates a big crowd, for some reason the Syosset location doesn't seem to pull in the same amount of traffic. So we're here to tell you why you shouldn't miss this hot spot.
Syosset's Kashi has the perfect 'let’s kick off the weekend' vibe with its modern-chic décor and moody lighting, not to mention specials throughout the week, and the can't-miss ladies night on Thursday. Unlike most restaurants and bars that put a cap on the number of hours ladies can enjoy their discounted drinks, Kashi's ladies' night starts at 5pm and goes on until closing time (which is 10pm on Thursdays).
Happy hour runs from Monday – Saturday for two hours, starting at 5pm. It is important to note, though, that happy hour deals are only in place at the bar. There are drink and food specials for happy hour starting with beers at $3, house wine (by the glass) at $4, and cocktails (house liquor only) at $5. For the foodies who come to happy hour for something more than just a drink, small bites like gyoza, rock shrimp (do yourself a favor, and try this!), and calamari are a steal ranging from $4-$7 – special sushi rolls like the 'angry dragon', or more simplistic style rolls like salmon avocado are in the same range, from $4-$7.
Aside from the tasty menu options – lunch, happy hour, dinner, dessert! – the impressive service at Kashi should also be reason to stop in. Once seated you are greeted by the kindest of waiters who offers you, and everyone seated at your table warm hand towels to freshen up before diving into a meal. Quickly after said waiter unfolds your napkin from the table and places it onto your lap for you, talk about service! While this was quite a bit unexpected, it did add to the experience at Kashi.
So whether you're looking for a quick drink after work with friends, or to be doted on and enjoy a nice dinner, Kashi should be next on your 'places to go' list. Also good to know, you can order in when you don't feel like going out...check out Kashi's take out menu here!
Kashi is located at 343 Jericho Turnpike, Syosset.
