10. Main Street
Port Washington’s Main Street is one of the largest in Nassau County, with dozens of restaurants, shops, markets, and cultural centers. The historic downtown extends to Manhasset Bay, and sites like the Town Dock and Sunset Park, which houses the Sousa Band Shell, are popular destinations. Nature lovers also flock to Blumenfeld Family Park, with flourishing gardens.
Popular restaurants along Main Street include seafood restaurant Louie’s Grill & Liquors, French eatery La P’tite Framboise, Japanese eateries like Restaurant Yamaguchi, Aiko, and Bonsai, and Thai eateries like Port Thai Place. Although currently closed, Landmark on Main Street, home of the 425- seat Jeanne Rimsky Theater, often puts on concerts with figures like Jeanine Tesori, Joan Osborne, and Rufus Wainwright.
