There's four things Long Island music fans have come to expect from The Paramount since the venue opened in 2011: friendly staff, tasty drinks, a comfortable atmosphere and great music from A-list acts. Heading into the busy summer concert season of 2014, Long Island's greatest performing arts venue has added a fifth reason why its the place to be for concerts, comedy shows and boxing.

The Paramount has spruced up its food menu with tasty treats such as veggie spring rolls and chicken avocado sandwiches. Additionally, the new menu includes beef sliders made from scratch, and turkey meatball parmigiano sliders with tomato sauce,
fresh mozzarella and garlic knots.

Make no mistake about it, the new menu is a far cry from venue offerings of the past. While other New York-based concert venues are sticking with traditional fare such as french fries, hot dogs and nachos, The Paramount is setting the standard for what music fans should expect food-wise when attending a concert.

Sure The Paramount still has jumbo pretzels available, reasonably priced at five dollars a pop. But its the specialty food items that have had customers raving in recent weeks. The "Jake Fries" is one particular item that has fans buzzing. Featuring fresh parmigiano and a touch of truffle oil, the "Jake Fries" make for a perfect snack while catching a concert.

Elsewhere, the venue has added parmigiano-crusted chicken fingers and homemade kettle chips to the menu. The kettle chips, known simply as "The Goods," are quickly becoming one of the most popular menu items available at The Paramount. For just $11, customers receive a hearty portion of homemade chips with a delightful Mascarpone bacon dip on the side.

The Paramount, located at 370 New York Ave. in Huntington, New York, hosts Boz Scaggs on May 13 and Blackmore's Night on May 22. Rusted Root and the Wailers hit the venue on May 23. Fans are encouraged to check out some sweet tunes, enjoy the beverages and try some of the new food items available.
