While it Lasts
    At Michael’s at Maidstone restaurant in Springs, a special on grilled steak or lobster is available daily from 5 to 6 p.m., or all night at the bar, but only while supplies last. The special is just $19.95. Reservations are required for those planning to eat in the dining room.

New in Noyac
    The Bell & Anchor, new this year at the Mill Creek Marina on Noyac Road in Noyac, has a menu featuring oysters, lobsters, pork belly, and more, and is serving dinner six nights a week beginning at 5:30. The restaurant is closed on Mondays.

Midday Muse
    At Muse in the Harbor, on Sag Harbor’s Main Street, every day is Sunday, so to speak, with both lunch and brunch being served from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the summer season. Diners can order from the lunch side, or the breakfast side of the menu. Dishes include a B.L.T. salad, tuna avocado salad, grilled zucchini rolltini, and a “grown-up grilled cheese” sandwich featuring Applewood smoked bacon, gorgonzola and smoked gouda cheeses, and sliced tomato. Burgers come in turkey, salmon, chicken, and organic grass-fed beef varieties.
    Breakfasty items include steak and eggs, omelettes made to order, blueberry or banana pancakes, creme brulée-stuffed French toast, and a “smoked salmon stacker,” with salmon, capers, cream cheese, chopped onion, hard-boiled egg, and frisée topped with Hollandaise sauce on grilled bread.

Locals’ Brewery
    Three East Hampton High School graduates have opened the Montauk Brewing Company, where they are serving their first signature brew, Driftwood Ale, an American-style  E.S.B. (Extra Special Bitter) beer. 
    Vaughan Cutillo, Eric Moss, and Joseph Sullivan opened their tasting room and gallery at 62 South Erie Avenue in Montauk on June 30. The tasting room is open on Fridays from 5:30 to 8 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 8 p.m. Growlers of Driftwood Ale can be purchased to take home.
