Concierge.com's insider take:
On summer evenings, this Shelter Island favorite, housed in a white-shingled ranch with flower-filled window boxes, quickly fills up with a beach-chic crowd that spills out to the picnic tables. Celebs such as actor John Malkovich, designer Jonathan Adler, and style maven Simon Doonan often stop by for the fresh fare: tuna tataki pepped up with wasabi; heirloom tomatoes with basil, Parmesan, and Vidalia onions; and perfectly prepared filet mignon. Be sure to save room for a side dish—the crisp frites with garlic aïoli are sublime.
Open Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays 5 to 9:30 pm, Fridays 5 to 10 pm and Saturdays 5 to 11 pm.
