Oyster Pond in Montauk - a sleeper

Lori | Jul 1, 2001 02:26 PM

I am going to unmask a sleeper in Montauk. It has only been open for about two years, and I want to make sure it stays open, because it is great!! The place is called Oyster Pond, and it is on the right side of Montauk Highway as you head into town (past the IGA store). The food is amazing! We started with this salad that had orange slices, carmelized nusts and a really good dressing (I am not a salad person, but this was the best salad I have ever had!). Then we got mussels steamed in a chardonay cream sauce (with lots of really good bread to sop up the sauce). Then, for entrees, we had macadamia crusted monkfish and a seafood stew over soba noodles. Both were really good. This is one of the best restaurants in Montauk, but it is unpretentious, quiet, there was jazz playing and the service was very friendly. Oh, did I mention that our entire meal was part of a two or three course price fixed special that cost only $19 or $25 (depending on the number of courses)? (you have to get there before 7:00p.m.) We drove by Harvest, which is a restaurant across the street that everyone goes to, and the lines were out the door. Granted, Harvest does have good food and a great view, but it is noisy, they don't always honor the reservations when it gets overbooked, and there is always too much food when ordering for two (it is family style). I highly recommend Oyster Pond - please keep my new favorite restaurant in business!!
