Opening in Montauk
Nick's on the Beach is opening Memorial Day weekend at 148 South Emerson Avenue in Montauk (most recently the Sloppy Tuna) with a limited takeout and grab-and-go menu available for window-service pickup. The restaurant and club occupied the space in years past and "is ready to reestablish itself as a favorite," according to a release. Initially, Nick's will offer simple fare — like quesadillas, burgers, wraps, and lobster rolls — as well as frozen specialty drinks and mini wine bottles, with charcuterie platters and ice cream and root bear floats. Its management team, headed by Jeff Capri, has kicked off the season by donating $10,000 to the Montauk Food Pantry and will match customers' donations to the pantry up to an additional $10,000. Nick's will be open daily from 11:30 a.m. until the evening.
