A new restaurant could soon open on Front Street with a familiar North Fork bartender at the helm.

Many know Andy Harbin as the face behind the bar at some of their favorite restaurants—Sophie’s in Southold, Legends in New Suffolk and the Frisky Oyster in Greenport.

But Harbin will likely soon have a bar and restaurant of his own. The beloved local barkeep has partnered with Greenport Village Trustee Doug Roberts to open Andy’s, which will be located at the former home of Rhumb Line restaurant on Front Street in Greenport. (more…)

Standing at the counter of a coffeehouse located inside their Brooklyn brewery, Threes Brewing partners Greg Doroski and Josh Stylman are reminiscing about the early days of their then fledgling company.

Doroski, who was living full-time in his native Cutchogue, recalled a trip to Brooklyn three years ago to take a look at some of the equipment Threes would use to brew its beer.
