Long Island foodies, rejoice!

Verizon FiOS1 launched a new show Thursday Feb. 24 focusing exclusively on the restaurant and food scene on Long Island.

Called Restaurant Hunter and hosted by FiOS1’s award-winning reporter Rob Petrone, the show is a relaunch of the popular two-minute feature segment “Reservations with Rob,” which has been running on FiOS1 News.

The premiere of Restaurant Hunter will air at 8 p.m. and will focus on “cheap eats.” In this episode, Petrone will visit Zim Zari in Massapequa Park, American Roadside Burger in Smithtown and Long Island Bagel Café in Merrick. Airing every Thursday evening, each weekly half-hour show will focus on a particular restaurant or food theme. Upcoming episodes will focus on Asian cuisine, barbecue and “High-End Huntington.”

“Restaurant Hunter” will be rebroadcast several times throughout the week. Long Islanders can check FiOS1 News Long Island for the programming schedule.

FiOS1 Long Island is available on Channel 1 only for Verizon FiOS customers on Long Island. Tune in to a new episode of Restaurant Hunter every Thursday at 8 p.m., only on Channel 1, FiOS1 Long Island.
