The families of the Organic Krush founders — Fran Paniccia, James Tchinnis, and Michelle Walrath — have played an important role in what they do and the food they offer at their shops in Woodbury, Lake Success, and now Amagansett.

Organic Krush opened at the former Mary’s Marvelous location in Amagansett in June. Ms. Walrath is a summer resident of Montauk, and heard from a customer in Woodbury that the Mary’s space would be available. She loved the idea of an Organic Krush closer to Montauk. “We are really excited to be here, it is a great town with great personalities and energy and we are looking forward to the upcoming months,” said Ms. Walrath. The owners plan to keep the store open year round, with a delivery service starting in the fall.

The owners feed their customers they way they would feed their families, and the takout shop sells smoothies, cold-pressed juice, oatmeal, acai bowls, gluten-free and vegan treats, and wraps, salads, and bowls — all of them 100 percent organic.

Along with such dishes as a spicy Korean barbecue bowl, Thai tofu, coconut shrimp, and fish tacos, the menu includes a selection especially for kids with choices like chicken B.L.T.s, quesadillas, and a Monkey Roll-Up with almond butter, bananas, and honey on a whole wheat tortilla. Kids’ meals range from $8 to $10; breakfast items are $12 and under, acai bowls are $11, with all sorts of add-ons available, smoothies start at $8, and bowls, wraps, and salads cost between $12 and $15.   

Mary’s Marvelous, which still has a location on East Hampton’s Newtown Lane, was much beloved in Amagansett, where it first opened. Ms. Walrath is hoping to follow in its footsteps and “continue serving our customers the way Mary’s Marvelous did . . .  . we have found a lot of people who care a lot about the food we are selling, and I am hoping that this continues in our new location this summer.”

The shop is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.  


The store offers a wide variety of snacks and meals.Virginia Breen
