Little Fish, the new restaurant from the owners of Montauk’s beloved 668 The Gig Shack, had its soft opening in Southold this fall.
The restaurant, with views of the Long Island Sound at Kenney’s Beach, is in the completely renovated space that once occupied Elbow East. A bright new coat of paint — both inside and out — pops with bold colors, the exterior accented with a green trim and the interior awash with blues and yellows, greens and pinks, all inspired by the gorgeous sunsets at Kenney’s. It’s light and airy and bursting with potential.
“This is a family affair, just like our Montauk restaurant,” said owner Arden Gardell, who developed the restaurant with his mother, Tracey.
Little Fish is an adaptation of the Gig Shack concept: seafood that is eclectic and coastal. The menu, by Ryan Barth-Dwyer, contains a mix of favorites from the Montauk restaurant like fish tacos alongside new creations and colorful, flavorful cocktails.
Little Fish (50 North Sea Drive, Southold) is planning a grand opening in the spring of 2023.
