Shark Bar

Fans with fond memories of the Bailey’s Banana Colada at Cyril’s Fish House on the Napeague stretch will be happy to know that Jeremy Blutstein, the executive chef at Mavericks Montauk, has opened Shark Bar at the former Cyril’s Fish House spot on Napeague. You won’t need a GPS to find it; just look for a shoulder lined with cars.

Described on its website as a “sandy, beachside surf shack with a fresh take on flip-flop friendly fare and contemporary takes on tiki classics,” Shark Bar is open Thursday through Monday from noon to 9 p.m.

Bostwick’s Double Play

Bostwick’s on the Harbor in Springs has announced happy hour specials available Monday through Friday from 5 to 6:30 at the bar and lounge only. Bar bites include shrimp cocktail, Peconic oysters, littleneck clams, yellowfin tuna poke, New England clam chowder, chicken potstickers, crispy goat cheese croquettes, Parmesan-truffle fries, and a lobster roll. Drink specials are $6 draft beers, $12 house wines, and $12 specialty cocktails.

The restaurant is now open Thursday through Monday; days will expand in mid-June.

Bostick’s Seafood Market on Pantigo Road in East Hampton is now open Monday through Thursday from 11 to 5 and Friday through Sunday from 11 to 6. Offerings include lobster bakes and clambakes to go as well as freshseafood, prepared food, and a well-stocked pantry. More information can be found on the market’s website.

Northern European Wines

Wine classes at Park Place Wines and Liquors will pivot from the spirits of Mexico to the wines of Germany, Austria, and Alsace next Thursday at 6 p.m. The wines from those northern regions are delicious but often overlooked or misunderstood, says the shop. Expect rieslings, gewurztraminers, and more.

Wines will be paired with snacks provided by the Cookery in East Hampton. Tickets are $45 and nonrefundable. Ticket buyers unable to attend have been asked to notify the shop so they can offer the spot to someone else.

Karaoke on the Move

Almond Restaurant and Bar in Bridgehampton will shift its “world-famous” karaoke night to Thursdays. Starting at 9:30, patrons can choose their favorite songs to belt out or croon. D.J. Carlos Lama is the host, and Karaoke Thursdays will run until midnight.


Paul’s Italian Restaurant on Hill Street in Southampton has announced that it is under new management and has a fresh yet classic Italian menu and a full service bar.

Also now open is the Surfside Inn at 685 Old Montauk Highway in Montauk.
