Walking into the new Duryea’s Orient Point is like stepping into a Mediterranean oasis.
The light wood furniture and plush cushions that fill the seating areas spill out onto the sandy beachfront. White tones of stone make up a back wall that contrasts with a deep brown ceiling framed by exposed beams. Arched doors lead to new areas. Outside, big white umbrellas and a stretched woven covering offer shade while the deck, a light wood, has deep comfortable chairs and wooden benches to sit on. Brightness comes through via the plants and blue napkins at each table.
This second location of the popular Montauk lobster spot opened late last month with a Mediterranean-inspired menu: Greek corn on the cob; roasted tomato and garbanzo bean; grilled halloumi and octopus.
Most dishes are served family style, such as the selection from the raw bar (oysters, clams, shrimp, crab, lobster), the salads (lobster cobb, dormata, Greek melon), or the Mediterranean spread, crudités or lightly fried veggie platter. And don’t forget the lobster, served on a roll hot or cold, in the shell whole or on one of the seafood platters.
They also have several boat slips for vessels up to 75 feet long at their marina.
Duryea’s Orient Point is open Wednesday through Monday noon to 10 p.m.
