Happy almost #MDW! Today, everybody’s favorite place for lunch — Lobster Roll restaurant, on Montauk Highway in Napeague, a.k.a. “Lunch” — officially opens for the season. Which means you can now get a lobster roll (pictured above) every day of the week, if the urge strikes. Which god willing, for the sake of our waistlines, it won’t. “Summer hasn’t officially begun until I bite into one of Lunch’s eponymous piles of invertebrate deliciousness,” says one Yelp reviewer. The roadside joint has been family-owned since Lyndon B. Johnson was president (an impressive feat for a Hamptons restaurant). For Showtime viewers, it’s also where Noah and Allison met and began a steamy affair….but that’s neither here nor there.
Did someone say freshly squeezed kale?
Solutions, the organic juice bar, is opening in Montauk (728 Montauk Highway) this Friday and then in Amagansett (367 Main Street) on June 3. We know: Just what the world needs, another juice bar. But we’re partial to this one because it appears to have a kale smoothie named “3 Mile,” after the harbor in Springs — and nobody ever names anything after locations in Springs. So there’s that. In fact, all the smoothies are named after Hamptons locales, according to One Healthy Hamptons, including the “Ditch Plains” (banana, strawberry, spinach, coconut water, and pineapple, and basil) and the “Napeague” (peanut butter, banana, almond milk, chia seeds, agave, and cinnamon). Yum. Pass the flax seeds, please..
What will that crazy Elon Musk think of next. Tomorrow, he is opening a Tesla showroom at 50 Newtown Lane in East Hampton, following the success of last year’s Southampton pop-up. The showroom will be open year-round, which makes us wonder if Mr. Musk has ever visited the Hamptons in January. Also, everybody here seems to drive gas-guzzling Land Rovers. But we’re fans of eco-friendly cars, so godspeed, Tesla.
Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack, another family-owned restaurant on the Montauk Highway, is kicking off Rock ‘n “Open Mic” tonight, 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., with Paul Fried of Hampton Jams and others. Performers get two free cocktails and 50% off menu items, which desperately makes us wish we had musical talent.
Annika Connor, a New York based artist, will be speaking at the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton next Tuesday about her newly published art book, Point Suite Contemporary Art, which features the art of 34 contemporary artists (painters, sculptors, print makers, and photographers). The talk, from 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., is part of the library’s free “Tuesday Talks” series; details here…another reason one should endeavor to be in the Hamptons on Tuesdays.
