As a premier summer vacation destination, the East End has always been largely seasonal. Yes, Dan’s Papers is here all year, and many arts centers, businesses and restaurants stay open year-round, but there is always in influx of seasonal stores and pop-ups that come for beach season and leave in the fall. While that tradition has certainly been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, it hasn’t been wiped out entirely, with many business owners coming up with creative ways to open up shop safely and cost-effectively. As we count down the weeks to July 4 weekend, check out some of the returning restaurants, brand-new eateries and fresh delivery services that have opened for the summer so far. Check back for updates as more openings are sure to follow.
