Dan’s Taste of Summer heads to The End on Saturday, July 30 for the ultimate seaside soirée, and you’re invited! You won’t want to miss the premiere of Dan’s ClambakeMTK at Gurney’s Montauk, the ultimate oceanfront food-and-drink fest at the legendary Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa. Pairing with Dan’s GrillHampton, Dan’s Taste of Two Forks and Dan’s Harvest East End to create a quartet of epicurean evenings that define summer on the East End, this is the unprecedented celebration of beach life and coastal cuisine. As we count down the days, let’s count down some our favorite reasons this will be a night you won’t want to miss…
Beach, Beach, Beach
Overlooking the sand and surf at the incomparable Gurney’s Montauk, ClambakeMTK is the very first Dan’s Taste of Summer event right on the ocean! Can you think of a more idyllic image than you sipping and savoring while the sun sets over the Atlantic Ocean at Gurney’s Montauk? We can’t, either.
The Clambake Reimagined
This is a clambake like you’ve never seen before! Sure, we all love lobster, mussels, and yes, clams that make your mouth water, but with this gathering of chefs from Montauk to Manhattan dishing up their take on the “clambake reimagined,” it’s so much more than seafood!
You’ll Party Like a VIP
Keeping with the theme of firsts at Dan’s ClambakeMTK, the debut Dan’s Taste of Summer VIP After Party will keep the revelry going at Gurney’s Montauk beyond the main event. The drinks will continue flowing and the music pumping as VIPs dance the night away at ClambakeMTK’s VIP After Party!
