According to Liz McCutcheon of Kitchen A Bistro, the owner of the two restaurants is set to open Orto, an eatery that will serve rustic Italian cuisine. The restaurant will be located at 90 North Country Road.

Kitchen A Bistro is known locally for it's top-rated French cuisine and a menu that changes often. At one point it was the highest ranked restaurant on Long Island by Zagat's guides. Kitchen A Trattoria offers the same format, but focusing on rustic Italian.

eric, as a life long miller place resident and "foodie", i wish you luck here. you have some stiff competition with places like alexandros. brian scotts along with the other place that tried their luck in that location did not make it because they were horrible. the times my family and friends went into brian scotts we always came out unhappy. being we are a close nit community, word travels fast and broad. if you have a great product with good service you will do well here.
