Your dream round is over -- it's time to grab a bite. Oh, and there's a hole-in-one on your card, so first you'll have to buy drinks for everyone at the bar. (It is a dream round, after all.) Then you can sit down to eat.
Taste 99 at Bethpage State Park is the final piece of Golfing Magazine's 2011 Long Island Dream Club. The Zagat-rated restaurant sits at the heart of the complex, looking out over the Black Course from the park's elegant clubhouse. Its Zagat food score of 18 is fitting considering its perch behind the Black's 18th green.
Here is Golfing Magazine's take on the restaurant and its modern American cuisine:
"Overlooking the famous Bethpage Black Golf Course, Taste 99 offers its guests many exquisite items on the menu and beautiful scenery to complete the dining experience. Executive Chef Phil Abshire helps serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and incredible desserts. Whether you are seeking eggs, a Taste 99 lunch burger or an oversized steak sandwich for dinner, Chef Abshire makes sure there are plenty of options to choose from."
