Bistro 72’s Patio Series: All Things Cider with McKenzie’s Hard Cider & April Rain

It’s hard to find something that complements fall as much as crisp apple cider. So we’re going all in. This October, Hotel Indigo is welcoming in fall traditions with the latest in Bistro 72’s Patio Series: All Things Cider with McKenzie’s Hard Cider and April Rain.

McKenzie’s Hard Cider is an award-winning brewery straight from the Apple Belt of New York. With their exceptional flavor, they’ve won gold and “Best in Show” at several domestic and international competitions. McKenzie’s Hard Cider creates their clean, refreshing taste with Hudson Valley apples, champagne yeast and top-quality ingredients, and they offer a variety of flavors like Original, Black Cherry and Peach Tea.

This evening, Bistro 72 also welcomes back Long Island’s eclectic duo, April Rain — a Hotel Indigo favorite. With their simple yet satisfying combo of guitar and percussion, April Rain entertains a wide range of audiences with music from all types of genres.

Of course, Bistro 72 will be offering up a thoughtful and tasty menu that pairs well with the evening’s beverage of choice, McKenzie’s Hard Cider. With our delicious cuisine, music by April Rain and the crisp, fall flavors of McKenzie’s, we think we’ve made this evening a triple treat you’re sure to love.

The fun happens October 11, 2018, from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. For reservations, call 631-369-3325 or visit to reserve via OpenTable.

Patio Series: A Celebration of BBQ and Whiskey

Join us Thursday, September 13 from 6–9 PM

Slide off of the summer flip-flops and slip on your best fall boots for an evening on the Patio at Bistro 72’s BBQ and Whiskey. On September 13, we will be celebrating American cuisine, liquor and music.

Our whiskey-inspired drinks menu will treat your taste buds to notes of smooth spices. We’ll be basting seasoned brisket and smoked meats in our signature barbeque sauce flavored to compliment your whiskey selections. You can also try our whiskey-rubbed, slow-cooked barbeque sliders.

At the bar, we’ll be mixing up cocktails with Widow Jane Whiskey, made in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Widow Jean’s flavor notes butter, cream, and toffee, with a complexity that boasts a cinnamon afterglow. Like the best whiskey manufacturers in the world, Widow Jane starts with a critical component: the water. Made with sweet water from the Widow Jane Mine, deep in the heart of Hudson Valley, it contains the perfect mineral content to make and cut this award-winning whiskey.

Our Americana celebration continues with the folk-rock stylings of Dave March. March is a celebrated local singer and songwriter whose musical talents have been highly recognized. He was a founding member of the critically-acclaimed ensemble, Miles to Dayton. His seasoned style of musical entertainment highlights hometown roots and will have your boots tapping along as you sip and savor the flavors of the evening.

Join us on the Patio as you sip, savor, and soak up the last days of summer. Make your reservations now at 631-369-3325.

Bistro 72 Presents Palm on the Patio with Michael Duca

Thursday, August 16 | 6-9 pm

The story of Belgium’s Palm Brewery goes back centuries and is rich with history through the march of industrialization, the tragedy of two World Wars, and the Flower Power movement of the 1960s. The name itself is a tribute to the dominance of top-fermentation beers over bottom-fermentation, something that Palm stuck with out of necessity at a time when it was out of fashion. Now in the 21st century, people around the world are still enjoying the refreshing, summery taste of this Belgian craft brew — Bistro 72 included.

Here in Long Island, we find that the fruity bouquet and light notes of Palm pairs exceedingly well with the aromas and tastes of our local seafood. That’s why Bistro 72 brings you our summer event series, Palm on the Patio.

On August 16th, from 6 pm to 9 pm, Bistro 72 is hosting Palm on the Patio with music by one of our favorites, Michael Duca. Michael Duca’s acoustic sets include originals plus an eclectic mix of covers by artists such as The Beatles, Elvis, Adele, Jack Johnson, Mumford and Sons, Pearl Jam, and The Black Eyed Peas — sounds that are a perfect pairing for outdoor summer nights with great beer and great food.

Bistro 72 at Hotel Indigo is a unique, East End dining experience, crafting memorable cuisine infused with local ingredients set in a casually elegant, contemporary atmosphere. Summertime, with its lively flavors and warm coastal nights, is one of our favorite seasons to create savory pairings and serve them up on our patio against the backdrop of good music and East End’s idyllic setting.

So, Bistro 72 and Hotel Indigo invite you to come, relax and enjoy our East End flavor under the stars with a glass of Palm and music by Michael Duca. For reservations call 631-369-3325.

Don’t Miss These Amazing Long Island Seafood Dishes

Summertime is the best time of the year for fresh, mouth-watering seafood — and the menu at Long Island’s Bistro 72 is teeming with options.

At Bistro 72, we believe you can taste the difference, which is why we serve only freshest fish, crab, lobster, mussels, and oysters — caught right out of the Sound and just off the coast. To do it, we partner with local seafood company Braun Seafood based in Cutchogue, NY; they’ve been catching the best seafood for more than 85 years.

During your next trip to Bistro 72, you’ll have to try our succulent seafoods yourself. For a classic crowd-pleaser, try the Scallop Ceviche, which combines citrus marinated scallops with mangos, bell peppers, cilantro and red onion. Or, if you’re a seasoned sea-foodie, go for the local oysters which will give you a feel for the local crop. Oh, and we can’t forget about the Ahi Tuna Taco: a magnificent take on a raw seafood staple, which pairs sesame crusted, sushi-grade tuna with pickled ginger and wasabi crema on a flour tortilla.

As you head into our main courses, peruse our extensive collection of local white wines to find the perfect pairing, or ask our servers for help. (Hint: Our Seared Sea Scallops with creme fraiche polenta, spinach, pine nuts, and beurre blanc pairs wonderfully with the One Woman Chardonnay.) For the bold flavor lovers, the Blackened Salmon with coconut risotto, salsa fresca, and lime herb butter sauce will satiate your taste buds.
