The sun has unofficially set on summer.

Something different anchored down in Long Beach earlier this summer. Craig Attwood, a name East End regulars may remember from his stints at Jedediah Hawkins Inn and East Hampton Point, opened Five Ocean Bar & Grill just off the boardwalk Memorial Day Weekend.

No region does a lobster roll quite like the North Fork. From Southold Fish Market, to Claudio’s and Love Lane Kitchen, just about every restaurant has its own impeccable take on the summertime favorite.

Chef Bruno Oliveira has carved out a slice of his American dream, with a little Croatian flavoring. Oliveira teamed up with Daniel Pedisich, his one-time boss at wine bar Bin 56, to open Konoba Craft Kitchen & Tasting Lounge in Huntington Village in February. 

The eatery with a focus on Croatian and Mediterranean dishes, located in Hush Bistro’s old digs on Gerard Street, is a half-mile down the street from old Bin 56, but a long way from where Oliveria started.
