The sign outside might still read Maryann’s, but as of Friday, there is a new Tex Mex joint open in Wading River.
Mesquite Tex Mex, Sound Beach’s hidden gem of a taco spot, opened its second brick-and-mortar location across from the Wading River Duck Ponds on Friday, according to owner Craig Scali.
“The response has been great,” Scali said from behind the new walnut wood countertop at the Wading River eatery. “I’m just trying to ease into everything.”

Brian Gurley is hoping the people of eastern Long Island, long-accostumed to the convenience of gooey, piping hot to-go pizzas, will embrace a West Coast approach to takeout.
His venture, Two Brothers Take and Bake Pizza, is expected to open on East Main Street in Riverhead by the end of the month, he said. Unlike a traditional New York pizzeria, the eatery makes fresh, uncooked pies to be cooked at home or frozen for later.
