A tiki bar downwind from the Fresh Kills Landfill may not be the ideal spot to appreciate a sea breeze, but this irony-free place could help you forget local geography. Take a seat in a bamboo booth illuminated by a taxidermic blowfish lamp and enjoy rum drinks served in coconuts or hula-girl glasses.

Still one of the best. I was Howard's first customer back in the seventies and it's still as good as ever.
Please update your info. This is a great place and is not "downwind " from anything. The famous landfill has been closed since 2000.
Strong, boozy drinks served in massive pineapples. Worth the trek out near the SI Mall. Straight out of the 60s Polynesian chinese/tiki restaurant craze, nearly untouched by time.
PLUS: This is David Johansen's favorite place in SI. He and Bourdain shared a pu pu platter while sitting in a grass covered hut on No Reservations. A+.
