Created by David Kuperschmid and Gunnar Myers — the restaurateur behind the former Napeague Stretch restaurant on Napeague and New York City’s Tenth Street Lounge — the family- friendly eatery is in the space that formerly housed Rugosa. The building has undergone extensive renovations, and offers a relaxed setting for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or just drinks. Robert Gurvich, the chef, recently, presided over the kitchen at Alison 18 in Manhattan, the latest endeavor by Alison Price Becker, with whom he opened the original Alison on Dominick Street. Mr. Gurvich also served up meals at Ms. Price Becker’s restaurants here.
The menu includes classic diner favorites such as grilled cheese, Reuben, tuna, B.L.T., and turkey club sandwiches, a fried oyster po’boy, and burgers. There will soon be breakfast all day, a variety of salads, soups and a vegetable chili, and starters such as braised beef tacos, crab cakes, and tuna tartare. For drinks there are soda fountain favorites such as ice cream floats and chocolate egg creams, along with smoothies and healthy juices such as a “Green Monster” mix of pineapple, kale, lemon, cucumber, and celery. Entrees include meatloaf, ribeye, grilled salmon, skate, linguine with clams and shrimp, and grilled vegetables with black quinoa. A junior menu has choices for $7.
