MONTAUK, NY - Star Island Grill, featuring casual dining overlooking the Montauk Harbor, is open once again for the 2011 summer season. The restaurant will be open on weekends until Memorial Day. During the summer season, Star Island Grill will expand its hours of operation.
This year, Star Island will feature a new lunch and dinner menu featuring the freshest local seafood, the best hamburgers, barbecue items and home-style dinners. Dockage will also be available during lunch and dinner, as boaters can place their orders dockside and have them delivered straight to their boat.
Local favorites include:
— Star Island Whopper - fresh hand-packed all natural beef, charcoal grilled to your liking and served on a toasted bun with lettuce, tomato and onion, served with crispy fries
— Barbeque Sandwich - house-smoked pulled pork, homemade slaw, cheddar cheese and sliced pickles on a toasted bun served with sweet potato fries
— Crab and Avocado Quesadilla - served with salsa and sour cream
— Fresh Fish Sandwich - local flounder lightly breaded and fried on a toasted bun with lettuce, tomato and tartar sauce
— Golden Fried Calamari - tender and crispy, served with spicy marinara sauce
— Golden Shrimp Basket - house-breaded and flash-fried with a choice of dips, french fries and cole slaw
— Montauk Lobster Roll - the taste of summer on the East End
— Fresh Steamed Mussels - served with a choice of marinara or white wine sauce, butter and garlic sauce
— Buffalo Chicken Sandwich - spicy chicken breast topped with bleu cheese dressing, lettuce, tomato and onion on a fresh ciabatta roll
— Clam Strips Basket - sweet and tender clams served with french fries and tartar sauce
Patrons will also find the East End Panini toasted to order on fresh ciabatta bread. These specialty sandwiches include:
— Chicken Florentine - golden chicken breast with sauteed spinach and melted mozzarella cheese
— Gourmet BLT - applewood bacon, vine-ripened tomatoes and baby arugula with fresh basil mayonnaise and cheddar cheese
— Sam's Sandwich - sliced slow-roasted prime rib topped with caramelized onions and melted mozzarella with an au jus dip
Star Island Grill will also be open early for the Fishermen's breakfast. A full breakfast menu is available for all fishermen who want to get something to eat before going out to sea. If they catch anything, the fishermen can have the chefs at Star Island Grill prepare and cook the fish and serve it to the angler's liking.
"We can't wait for the weather to warm up and the boating season to begin. Our new menu will reinforce Star Island Grill as a unique tourist destination restaurant that attracts both boaters and non-boaters alike," said Sam Gershowitz, Owner, Star Island Yacht Club.
