ART A LA CARTE – Say hello again to Campari Art House (225 Main St., Northport 631-757-6700 www.campariristorante.com) but this time with a decidedly more artistic flair. Owner Danyell Miller, who has always featured local artists during her first year and a half as a restaurateur in Northport, is now focusing more intently than ever in transforming her eatery into a jazzy artist’s hub, right down to the hand-crafted menus and votive holders, created by Campari curator Anu Annam. With local artwork, live music on the weekends and classes with guest chefs teaching about health, nutrition, history and the art of cooking through the lens of the Mediterranean lifestyle, Danyell said she’s hoping to build “a community of artists, musicians and chefs who want to heighten the experience of dining out.” During a soft grand-reopening Friday, we overheard folks at a neighboring table raving about the meatballs, mussels and fresh seafood.
