Visited Montauck this weekend with several suggestions from this list in my wallet; here are the results:
Dave's Grill is a charming, crowded seafood "shack", with OK food and Manhattan overprices. Cyril's was so packed (with beautiful people on lines) at 8 pm on Sunday, could not even approach the place. Everything along the way was overpriced with attitude (Candy Kitchen owners at Bridgehampton are smirking all the way to the bank). One great surprise is Stuart's Fish Market in Amangansett, right off #27, who sells local seafood along with freshly- prepared salads, Sullivan Street Bread, wonderful sweets - a reliable food purveyor with fair prices.
For a travel article, please some recommendations for new places to eat well (skip Mohonk House and Depuy Canal) around Mohonk, High Falls, Stone Ridge.
