With its close proximity to several popular Long Island Sound beaches, The North Fork Shack is an ideal location for takeout on a beach day.

Opened in 2016 by friends Ryan Flatley and Samy Sabil, who met while working at North Fork Table & Inn, the menu features fresh, local ingredients with lots of Mediterranean influence.  (more…)

Ryan Flatley is a lifelong Southolder and a graduate of Southold High School, his father the town’s police chief. His business partner Samy Sabil is a Casablanca, Morocco native, who relocated to the area about 11 years ago and has called it home ever since.

Side-by-side descriptions of their hometowns appear on the menus for their new restaurant, North Fork Shack, a nod to the fusion of Mediterranean touches and local seafood which will be the eatery’s hallmark.

Now after two years of planning, the restaurant and takeout spot will open at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 27. It will serve lunch and dinner five or six days per week, year round. (more…)
