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

Long Island's insatiable appetite for sushi is being fed a bit more by a new Hamptonian.

Shuko Beach, a pop-up Asian restaurant specializing in chef's-choice dinners, has moved into the Montauk Highway address recently occupied by Highway Diner & Bar.

The sleek establishment is overseen by chefs Nick Kim and Jimmy Lau, formerly  of Neta in Manhattan. Shuko NYC is expected to open in autumn.

The 90-seat newcomer, with a 12-seat sushi-sashimi bar, is open for dinner six days, from 5:30 p.m. to midnight. It's closed on Tuesday. Lunch is expected to start soon.

Shuko Beach features sushi and sashimi; small plates such as Dungeness crab salad, scallop crudo, and local fluke finished with almonds, pickled tomatoes and orange oil; and larger ones including spicy lobster with clams, crab and shrimp; whole branzino with roasted clams and grilled tomatoes.

Also offered are steamed black bass; tempura of soft-shell crab, soft-shell shrimp and local vegetables; and grilled king crab.
