Montauk restaurants

Montauk may be "The End" on bumper stickers, but it's "The Start" for some of the East End's tastiest meals. Despite the increasing Hamptonization, Montauk remains basically a beach town, attracting families of vacationers and anyone with a fishing pole. In the last decade, the restaurant scene has grown dramatically, in number and in variety. Here are some area restaurants, most of them informal, some attuned to take-out, all worth visiting. -- Compiled by Peter M. Gianotti
