Larry Wolhandler and Steve Laird wanted to create a community for artists and people who like art, so they opened Painters in Brookhaven Hamlet 10 years ago.
The walls are covered with art. The other place you'll want to focus your attention is on the food. A menu that ranges from nachos, to the more gourmet like the halibut with corn salsa...
Chef Luis pan sears the halibut and finishes it off in the oven. Meanwhile he mixes a salsa made of tomato, avocado, cilantro, lime and jalapenos and Peruvian corn with oversize kernels.
A little olive oil and it's served on top of the fish which is served with a crab cake and asparagus.
Preheat oven to 350.
Salt and pepper the fish.
Lightly saute in olive oil over medium heat, one minute per side
Finish off in oven for 5 minutes
While that's cooking, toss corn, avocado, tomatoes, peppers, lemon and drizzle of olive oil in bowl. Serve the salsa on top of the fish.
