The Good, the Bad, the Ugly of East End Eating This Week

The Good, the Bad, the Ugly of East End Eating This Week

The Good: I raise a glass to B. Smith’s, where I had many (too many?) a sunset cocktail over the years and vowed to one day have a drink named for me on the menu (Ray of Sunshine, anyone?), as the longtime Long Wharf staple (it opened in 1997) won’t be opening its doors this summer in Sag Harbor. But when a door closes, a new window opens, or something like that. So I also raise a glass to Richie Notar, who, Grub Street reports, will be taking over the B. Smith locale with an East End version of his New York City spot Harlow, and they should be serving by Mother’s Day. Now I have a brand new place to take my wife for that mother of all eat-out holidays…

The Bad: Hamptons Restaurant Week started only yesterday, and I already can’t find time to go get a Surf & Turf Spring Roll at Bobby Van’s, Crab Empanadas at Mercado, Seafood Brousse at Cooperage Inn, Duck Empanadas at Rumba (yes, I have a thing for empanadas), Roasted Beef Shank Risotto at Jamesport Manor Inn, Bison or Elk Hanger Steak at Tweed’s, Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding at The Coast Grill…

The Ugly: Men grow older, but we don’t necessarily grow up. So when a good friend told me there was no way I could eat one suicide wing from Boom Burger for every game I’d get wrong in my March Madness bracket before the Sweet 16, I had to prove that I could. I got 14 games wrong…
