News for Foodies: 09.07.17

Local Food News

As this issue of The Star comes out, no doubt restaurateurs all over the East End are taking a deep breath, having navigated another summer season. But don’t forget, some of the favorite seasonal places will remain open through September, or even beyond, providing those who eschew the heavy crowds a chance to partake.

The seafood specialties offered by Gosman’s Dock, at the end of West Lake Drive in Montauk, include grilled Block Island swordfish served with orzo salad, almond pesto, and lemon-mint vinaigrette; Gosman’s surf and turf, with a steak filet and lobster tail served with potato and vegetable; blackened yellowfin tuna steak, and, of course, lobsters served a variety of ways. 

Across the channel from Gosman’s, Inlet Seafood restaurant and sushi bar offers a great view on even a chilly day, when one can gaze out through expansive windows. 

Other waterfront sites that might be more tranquil spots to dine and sip now that we’ve passed Labor Day include two on Three Mile Harbor in Springs — the Harbor Bistro and Bay Kitchen Bar. 

 

Vegetable Gleaning

Another end-of-season focus for some foodies is the gleaning program organized by the Amagansett Food Institute, which mobilizes volunteers to collect excess produce from farm fields that would otherwise go to waste. The yield is donated to food pantries here.

Volunteers are needed and can get in touch with the organizers by sending an email to info@amagansettfoodinstitute.org. Farmers interested in offering the leftovers in their fields have been asked to get in touch as well.
