The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

Robbin Haas, a veteran of Florida restaurants, is the new chef at the Montauk Yacht Club. He succeeds Michael Domitrovich, whose food last season earned the Club's Gulf Coast Kitchen two-and-one-half stars.

Domitrovich departed to pursue his writing career. Keeping some of Domitrovich's themes, Haas plans to emphasize seasonal fare and local ingredients in a New American menu. In 1994, he was among those named a "best new chef" by Food & Wine Magazine. His experience includes work with Turnberry Isle Resort, China Grill Management and Four Seasons.

The Montauk Yacht Club is at 32 Star Island Rd., Montauk; 631-668-3100.
