Mavericks Montauk: Do you even steak?
GETAWAYS • Restaurants
The Skinny: A sleek surf and turf spot with unobstructed views of Montauk’s Fort Pond from former Crow’s Nest chef Jeremy Blutstein and partner/sommelier Vanessa Price. Mavericks planned to open last summer, but beach glitz of this sort can’t be rushed. It finally opened its doors last month.
The Vibe: With its angular lines and contemporary feel, Mavericks stands in stark contrast to the myriad beachy bohemian shacks that define the area. It wouldn’t be out of place in the Hollywood Hills.
The Food and Drink: Mavericks bills itself as “A Steak Place. But not a Steak Place,” which, okay. To be fair, there’s plenty of local produce and seafood on the menu. Look out for whole Montauk fluke meunière and a porterhouse for two. There’s also a serious wine program.
Where to sit: Any seat on the patio.
Verdict: A shiny place for post-beach drinks (opens at 5 p.m.) or dinner. –Kat Odell
