Ruby at Your Door
Ruby Murray's Indian restaurant is offering delivery of its dinner menu to sites outside of third-party delivery service zones, which only span about 7.5 miles from the Sag Harbor store's location. This program will include the entire South Fork as well as areas west of the Shinnecock Canal.
The restaurant's website will publish the dates and times of the weekly delivery service to reserve in advance. Only limited slots will be available for each delivery. To receive notice of discounts and specials ahead of time, registration can be completed on the website. Pickup of orders will continue to be available in Sag Harbor.
Rosie's restaurant in Amagansett will close out September with two remaining pop-up experiences. This weekend is Wayla, a Thai import from New York City, which is serving dinner from 5 to 10 from Thursday through Saturday. The menu is available as a prix fixe or a la carte.
Little Owl will be in residence next Thursday to Sept. 30. The restaurant is a Greenwich Village institution with a Mediterranean focus and a neighborhood spirit. The restaurant's chef, Joey Campanaro, supplements the menu with his own local catch and dishes he recalls cooking with his grandmother.
"Two Jews Making Food" fans can join the pair Friday when they make potato and cheese blintzes, a traditional Yom Kippur dish, at the East End Food Market in Riverhead. In addition to the demonstration, they will offer their signature witty banter, some insights into Jewish tradition, and samples of their cooking. Mocktails and regional wines will be poured.
Tickets, which are $45, are available on Eventbrite.
