Whether you’re hoping to slurp Bluepoint oysters or sip a blended cocktail, Long Island’s East End has the eats your summer requires.
New York’s Montauk, a once-sleepy beach town on the eastern-most point of Long Island, has long been dubbed the “End of the World.” And it’s no wonder: the hamlet is the last stop on the Long Island Railroad, and juts out into the Atlantic, affording panoptic views of the ocean and empty horizon.
Still, despite the isolated feeling one gets staring out from its beaches and peers, Montauk is far from remote, boasting a patchwork of top-notch restaurants, bars, bistros, and coffee shops.
Since Montauk has become known as The Hamptons’ bohemian, indie-chic neighbor, the food scene has been booming, offering the world in fresh seafood and culinary creativity. That’s great news, because nothing sounds better after a long day of catching waves at Ditch Plains than a lobster roll or octopus tempura.
Montauk’s very best restaurants and cafes offer hyper fresh fare, a breezy vibe, and with dynamite waterfront views. Read on.
