There is something comforting about going to your favorite restaurant and knowing the menu will be exactly the same every single time. You can rely on getting your favorite dish cooked exactly the same way.


The new Restaurant X in Port Washington is not that place.


Led by a team of restaurateurs with experience in every facet of the business from bussing to managing and overseen by executive Chef Tomo Kobayashi and Chef de Cuisine Cesar Aguilar, Restaurant X will feature a rotating menu designed by select guest chefs.

The restaurant will present a pre-fixed multi-course tasting concept from hand-selected guest chefs. According to a statement released by the restaurant, guests will get to experience each new menu created and developed from the minds of a different chef, perhaps one of their favorites or TV personality.


As one of the most important missions, the Restaurant X team has always set out to inspire others, not only through food, but with a greater sense of generosity. Restaurant X has pledged to donate all profits from every dining experience to St. Mary's Hospital for Children, which provides long-term and rehabilitative care to critically ill and injured children. This charitable partnership was brought forward by Robert Heicklen, the liaison between St Mary's and Restaurant X. This is part of the ongoing mission that Restaurant X and its team hopes that they can do their part to help better the lives of thousands of pediatric patients per day.
