Bullfish Grill Closes Shop

Three restaurants in just over three years disappear from same location.

Bullfish Grill’s menu of fresh seafood selections and different takes on traditional dishes seemed to be a perfect fit for Sayville restaurant goers, who love healthy choices and fresh cuisine. However, after just nine months in business Bullfish Grill quietly closed its doors over the Fourth of July weekend. Calls and emails to owner Carlo Bruno were not returned.

Bruno officially took over the location in July 2010. But he spent months renovating the interior and exterior of the restaurant. He even outfitted the entire restaurant with glass artwork.

Yet, Bullfish is just one of the many victims to what seems to be doomed at that particular space on West Main Street. Three restaurants in just over three years disappear from same location.

Tex-Mex restaurant The Armadillo Grille opened for business in September of 2009. The owners run another successful location in Babylon, and their dream was to take their restaurant concept national with their Texas BBQ cuisine. The Armadillo Grille was set up in that space for less than a year as well, closing its doors in July 2010.

Yet another restaurant victim was Taste. Their menu offered wine tastings as well as small bites and fondues but it never seemed to attract the right crowd. The restaurant opened in February 2008 and after months of empty tables, it shut the doors after a little more than a year.

Why didn't I think of calling Robert Irvine of Restaurant Impossible? He would know how to bail out a failing restaurant!!

Just a few weeks ago, Newsday did a section called Top 10 restaurants on the South Shore. A few restaurants in our area made the cut (LaTavola, Verace, The View, Bistro 25, Strip Steak, BluePoint Bar and Grill). Just thought people on this site would be interested in that
