The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene
A sunny lunch at 18 Bay, Shelter Island
18 Bay now serves lunch on Saturday and Sunday, making weekends even sunnier on Shelter Island.
Elizabeth Ronzetti and Adam Kopels moved to Shelter Island last year. The relocation resulted in a charming restaurant for dinner on the East End.
Currently, the midday, the menu is pretty limited but excellent. Recent winners: duck salad with poached eggs, duck bacon and greens; a lush tuna Nicoise; and panini, especially those with speck. provola cheese, and caramelized onions and with a Swiss chard frittata and ricotta.
Lunch is served from noon to 3 p.m. Dinner starts at 5 p.m. five days. 18 Bay is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday.
18 Bay, 23 N. Ferry Rd. (Route 114), Shelter Island; 631-749-0053.
