Weather Alert  

AIR QUALITY ALERT IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM SATURDAY TO 11 PM SATURDAY The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has issued an air quality health advisory for the following counties: Suffolk and Nassau. Air quality levels in outdoor air are predicted to be greater than an air quality index value of 100 for ozone. The air quality index, or A Q I, was created as an easy way to correlate levels of different pollutants to one scale. The higher the A Q I value, the greater the health concern. When pollution levels are elevated, the New York State Department of Health recommends limiting strenuous outdoor physical activity to reduce the risk of adverse health effects. People who may be especially sensitive to the effects of elevated levels of pollutants include the very young, and those with pre existing respiratory problems such as asthma or heart disease. Those with symptoms should consider consulting a physician. For additional information, please visit the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation web site at,, or call the Air Quality Hotline at 800-535-1345.

Nuvo Kitchen, serving up Caribbean-fusion food, finally opened its doors late last year and the reviews are strong with this East Meadow eatery.


Symantha W., of Rockville Centre, wrote that the place was amazing.


“The food, the ambiance, the customer service (even from the owners),” she wrote. “Initially supported because it was black owned but this has become my favorite place to go overall. A 5 star experience from top to bottom. Highly recommend. The oxtail stuffed mushroom and the jerk ribeye are soooooo good!”

The menu is hard to locate online (none can be found as of this writing on the website) but posts on review sites and images on social media give a glimpse of the Caribbean fare.


They tout their grilled octopus and rum glazed sugar-cane beef on Facebook with delectable photos. We also get glimpses of fried glazed Calamari and their NK Rum Punch.

“We had the ribs and sugar can beef for appetizer and jerk chicken and saffron lobster for dinner,” she wrote. “Not one bite was left.”
