Coche Comedor is here to rid you of your winter blues.

The chef’s selections will change weekly and the promotion will be confined to the bar area only.

Honest Man’s Beverage Director Chimene Macnaughton says of these evenings, “Anybody who’s weathered a winter out east is familiar with this stretch we’re in now where we collectively wonder if we’ll ever see another daffodil bloom. We can all surely use some funning up!” We can get behind that!

The Bell & Anchor in Sag Harbor has announced they will offer daily specials every Tuesday through Sunday beginning at 5:30 p.m. The specials are available for dine-in exclusively.

The specials, subject to change, include Pork Milanese Night on Tuesday, Lobster Night on Wednesday, Bouillabaisse Night on Thursday and last not but least, Moules Frites Night on Sunday. Scrumptious appetizers are also being served.
