La Buena Vida opened in February, 2020 in Moriches. Owner Tom Freck was inspired to open the restaurant because while there are terrific American and Italian restaurants in the area, he noticed that there were a lack of authentic Spanish cuisine options. For restaurant week, they'll be supplying a $44 three-course dinner featuring noms such as pork osso bucco, salmon piccata, veal meatballs, grilled artichoke hearts and paella Valencia. Oh, and the margaritas are to die for!
