After many stops to say hello to Chef Jeff and not finding him there at the moment, I finally got to the Crow's Nest for dinner. He is always there for that. A wonderful menu that makes it very hard to decide what to get. And the food is delicious. Simple, flavorful, summery, well-presented, just all around yum.
There were four of us. We all had a little tastebof each others plates. Here is the rundown. Beginning with squash blossoms stuffed with ricotta and basil. Simple, fresh, crispy and just plain good. Super hot when they come out so wait a few seconds before jumping in.
The coup de grace is the chocolate brioche pudding topped with a ice cream. Not to be missed. We have been discussing this for days. The whole meal could be bad but the chocolate brioche would make up for everything. The good news is that the meal if excellent too.
Looking over the water in Montauk, with a big bonfire and a circle of chairs before entering the restaurant. You really feel as if you are not only at the beach but you are on a really nice vacation.
