Local Food News

   A three-course prix fixe at the Gulf Coast Kitchen, a restaurant at the Montauk Yacht Club in Montauk, has a Creole take. The menu for the $29.95 special changes weekly.
    At 668 The Gig Shack, also in Montauk, dinner is served nightly starting at 6, as well as lunch on the weekends, beginning at noon. On the menu are Gig Shack classics such as fish tacos, Hawaiian-style ribs, and scallop salad, along with weekly specials, among them pumpkin ravioli with brown butter, sage, and pignoli nuts, and filet mignon with pesto-roasted fingerling potatoes. There is live music at the bar every weekend.

Red Horse Doings
    The three chef-owners of the Red Horse Market in East Hampton will present the next East End Chefs at the Whalers Church in Sag Harbor this evening at 6:30. On the menu are fresh mozzarella with prosciutto as a starter, followed by homemade sausage and a chocolate-caramel tart. Admission is $30, which includes wine. Space is limited, so those interested in attending have been asked to call the church.
    At the market itself, there are some new offerings for those looking for takeout options. A “restaurant-style” takeout menu is offered from 3 to 7 p.m. most days, and until 8 on Friday and Saturday nights, and the shop’s collection of “grab and go” meals has been expanded.

Old Stove Pub
    The Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack has reopened under new ownership, but is still serving some of the classics for which diners have looked to the eatery for many years: authentic Greek food, and steaks.
    Dinner is served nightly starting at 5, and continues until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and until 10 on other nights.

Harbor Grill
    The specials at Harbor Grill in East Hampton this fall include a $19 three-course prix fixe and a two-course lobster dinner for $29, both available every night.

    Harbor Grill, which has added a selection of world and United States microbrews to its beer list, has a daily happy hour from 5 to 6 p.m. On Saturday nights there is live music from 7 to 10.

Cultural Evening

Fun and Food
    Townline BBQ in Sagaponack is reviving its Thursday-night pub quiz, starting at 7 p.m. each week. An entry fee of $10 per person goes into the pot for the grand prize. Teams of five can be formed in advance, or will be formed at the event. All participants will receive a 10 percent discount on the regular menu.

Learn About Raw Foods

    Those who visit will have an opportunity to learn about the benefits of incorporating raw and vegan food into their diets.

Fall Specials

On Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 5 to 10 p.m., diners can choose among a la carte items included in a three-course, $27, prix fixe. A pasta-and-salad special is also offered, for $19. On Wednesdays, lobster fra diavolo is the special, for $21, and on Thursdays the $21 special is farsumagru, Sicilian-style stuffed steak, a steak rolled with speck, ground beef, eggs, peas, and cacciocavallo cheese.
    Beginning at 9 every night, a late-night menu is available. On Friday and Saturday, lunch is served from noon to 3:30 p.m., or brunch during the same hours. Osteria Salina is closed on Tuesdays.

Author at Sylvester Manor
    Silvia Lehrer, a cooking teacher and the author of “Savoring the Hamptons: Discovering the Food and Wine of Long Island’s East End,” will be among the authors at the Plant and Sing event at Sylvester Manor on Shelter Island on Saturday.
    She will read from her book, and provide tastings of some of the food referenced, at 12:45 p.m.



That one is really going to make foodies happy. Specially the reopening of old stove pub is exciting. I soon hope to make a visit there. Pest control bed bugs
