Braun Seafood 2 Go
30840 Main Rd. Cutchogue, NY 631-734-5550
In 2007, Cutchogue's venerable fish market opened a kitchen and set up about a dozen outdoor picnic tables. Seat yourself, and set the kids loose on the lawn.
On the menu is that rarest of Long Island cuisines: fresh local seafood that hasn't been "enhanced" by some exceedingly talented chef. Here's the spot for raw clams, steamed mussels, fried oysters, peel-and-eat shrimp, broiled flounder, pan-seared tuna and grilled swordfish. Kids don't like fish? There are mozzarella sticks, chicken fingers and burgers.
Braun's daily specials are drawn from the local catch. If you don't see what you want, stroll over to the fish market and see what else looks good. The kitchen will cook anything you buy there (for a $5 minimum fee).Hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Credit cards: Accepted Notable dishes: fried Peconic Bay scallops
