The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Montauk's Navy Beach, one of Long Island's most summery restaurants and night spots, reopens for the warm-weather season on Friday.
The casual, beachside eatery stands out for its local clam-and-corn chowder, conch fritters, lobster salad, and buttermilk-fried chicken with Cheddar cornbread and house-made slaw.
New this season are a series of cocktails based on the gin-and-tonic theme.
Navy Beach, 16 Navy Rd., Montauk; 631-668-6868.
