The Weekend Australian - Travel - - One Perfect Day -

STAY Gar­den City Ho­tel: Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton might not have slept here, but Charles Lind­bergh, John F. Kennedy and Mick Jag­ger did. A 2002 ren­o­va­tion of this 280-room prop­erty has made one of Long Is­land’s finest and most his­toric ho­tels even bet­ter. www.gar­denci­ty­ho­tel.com. Glen Cove Man­sion: This ho­tel and con­fer­ence venue on a sprawl­ing 22ha has 187 gue­strooms and suites, a spa, ten­nis courts, pools and even a bowl­ing al­ley. www.glen­cov­e­man­sion.com. The Andrew Ho­tel: This 62-room bou­tique ho­tel is a short walk from Long Is­land sta­tion, shop­ping and restau­rants. Wellap­pointed rooms fea­ture flat-screen TVs, DVD and CD play­ers and wire­less in­ter­net ac­cess. www.an­drewho­tel.com. EAT Panini Cafe at Diane’s (23 Bryant Ave, Roslyn): This ca­sual counter-ser­vice cafe serves tasty sal­ads, pizza and, of course, panini, but save room for its glo­ri­ous desserts. www.eatout­long­is­land.com. Mims (235 Roslyn Rd, Roslyn): A stand­out on the din­ing cir­cuit, Mims of­fers an eclec­tic Amer­i­can menu, from sand­wiches and pizza to de­li­cious land and sea spe­cial­ties. Wines avail­able by the bot­tle or su­per-size glass. www.mim­sny.com. Po­modoro (294 Main St, Port Wash­ing­ton): This lively and al­ways-crowded eatery is a lo­cal favourite for its re­li­able Ital­ian fare, gen­er­ous por­tions and at­ten­tive ser­vice. www.po­modor­o­hunt­ing­ton.com.
