Happy Wednesday! Just in time for summer, the Inn Spot on the Bay will be parking its food truck (pictured above) on its lawn tonight, part of its “Food Truck Wednesdays” that feature live music. The Hampton Bays restaurant, owned by Colette Connor and Pamela Wolfert, also has an unusual way to survive the desolate cold months: It devotes each winter weekend to a different international cuisine (Italy, France, Germany, etc.), something we might try at home. Now that things have warmed up, the Inn Spot is open seven days a week for dinner. Here’s a recent sunset, taken from the lawn.

Did someone say figs and hummus?

A new Mediterranean restaurant, Oreya, has opened at the Capri Hotel in Southampton, under the guidance of chef and owner Greg Grossman, who is roughly the same age as Justin Bieber. Actually, strike that — Grossman, 21, is younger than Bieber. Yup. He is apparently a wunderkind in the restaurant business (see this Wall Street Journal article, about his time at Georgica) and probably a good advertisement for Ross School, his alma mater. Grossman and partner Evan Finkelstein say they will source Oreya’s menu from local farms and fisheries. The menu includes Crispy Beluga Lentils and Roasted Carrot Tartare with Harissa.

Quick takes…

Muse in the Harbor will host a fundraiser this Thursday benefitting all those directly affected by the mass shooting in Orlando. “Get ready to bring out your glitter, your sequins, your boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives, donations and most of all your dancing shoes!” the Sag Harbor restaurant says. Tickets and details for “One Pulse Hamptons” here.

Fresco of Southampton, which humbly claims to serve “the best pizza and deli this side of the Mississippi,” took the opportunity of a rainy Tuesday to remind patrons that it will deliver locally (and for a $4 fee)…

Blue Duck Bakery over the weekend celebrated the second anniversary of its “Poetry Street” events, held every fourth Sunday afternoon at its shop in Riverhead. And thus, we craft a haiku to announce its next gathering: Creative worders, gather with poem and croissant, July 24.

Social Media Quote of the Day

“@FrankiesBikinis are really all you need this summer,” Flying Point Surf Shop, posting this photo on Instagram. Isn’t this a one-piece? We are perplexed.
