Montauk Mainstay


Who: Perry Duryea, Sr., bought the place in the 1930s; now, same name, new owner
What: Outdoor deck­-taurant and seafood market on Fort Pond Bay
Where: 65 Tuthill Road
Why: Super fresh lobster, flounder, mussels, corn enjoyed dock­side
Insider tip: They keep a stash of blankets inside, because, well, Montauk. Ask for one if it gets windy/chilly out on the deck.

A 200­-foot­long wood pier extends out over clear blue­-green waters of Fort Pond Bay, with a view that extends easily to Gardiner’s and Little Gull islands, and on the clearest days, as far as CT and RI. Feel free to paddleboard, boat—hell, even swim—right up to the place. Because if you score one of the handful of tables on the Lobster Deck, you will have one of those moments where everything works. The food is ridiculously fresh. The view, especially around sunset, is ridiculously beautiful. Enjoy this gem—which has been sitting in the same little complex of wooden buildings since the 1920s–while you still can because new plans are in the works.
