This summer, prepare to get Hooked.
That’s the name of a casual, counter-service seafood spot slated to open in downtown Montauk on May 1.
Hooked will move into the site vacated by Red Hook Lobster Pound. Red Hook continues to have restaurants in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
Brian Mooney, who worked for more than two decades at Clam Bar in Amagansett; and Gillian Mooney, formerly of nearby Herb’s Market, are opening Hooked.
Takeout seafood is the lure. Expect lobster rolls, chowders, fish tacos, fish sandwiches, salads, and a raw bar highlighting Montauk Pearl oysters and local clams, plus burgers and fries, Brian Mooney said.
“It will be local seafood at a reasonable price,” he added. Prices will be in the $10 to $30 range. Benches and tables will be available outside, as they were at the eastern branch of Red Hook Lobster Pound.
Hooked will be at 34 S. Etna Ave., Montauk, 631-668-2111.
Last week, another Montauk casual spot was announced. MTK Lobster House is expected to open mid-March.
Owner Diego Flores formerly was manager of Shagwong Tavern, a longtime landmark in downtown Montauk.
Flores said the restaurant menu hasn’t been finalized. But diners can count on dishes such as a lobster roll, fish and chips, chowders, lobster bisque, crabcakes and a clambake.
Prices will range from $10 to $25, Flores said.
MTK Lobster House will be in the former site of Soursop Tree Cafe, a Jamaican eatery, on the second floor, above Plaza Surf and Sports at 716 Montauk Hwy., Montauk.
