Mark and Lynn discover Casamigos Tequila....


We had frequented Montauk lately and had tried a first rate well aged Tequila Anejo from  Casamigos at Saltbox. Casamigos had a smoothness and a hint of oakiness that we associate with a well made bourbon.  This smoothness of course makes sense since Geroge Clooney, no stranger to smoothness, is one of the owners of the company (along with Randy Gerber).

Mark and Lynn take in the Montauk Brewing Company....

We finally made it to the well regarded  Montauk Brewing Co. on an early Friday afternoon.  We loved all of the offerings.  Of particular interest to us was the Driftwood Ale which had a fragrant, briny taste  and the Watermelon Session Ale which was unbelievably refreshing and managed the difficult (to me at least) trick of infusing beer with fruit.  The bartenders were great and really attentive and handled the many customers with good humor and finesse.

An appreciation of Papa Nick's Gluten Free Pizza....

Lynn and I have come to appreciate Bellport's Papa Nick's Gluten Free Pizza.  It has a nice, light crunch with a smoky flavor.  Mainly, it doesn't play havoc with our weight the way traditional carb based pizza does. Great to be able to have it delivered and goes great with our favorite roses....

Mark and Lynn experience food truck excellence with Poseidon's Kitchen...

Lynn and I went to Barrier Brewing in Oceanside and had a great experience.  While there we ran into a sublime food truck called Poseidon's Kitchen.  The proprietor Alan Artieda whipped up the most amazing fish taco either one of us had ever had.  The breading was light and tempura like; the sauce had finesse and the tomatoes tasted like summer.   It goes without saying that this was a perfect complement to the Brewery's icy cold and fragrant offerings....

Saltbox in Montauk pulls Mark and Lynn into the seaon...



Lynn and I made a sojourn into Montauk and took in a quick drink at the Saltbox Restauraunt and Bar.  We enjoyed a crisp dirty martini and Lynn had a "Montauk 33" consisting of (among other things) gin and blood orange liqueur.  The day was cool but the drinks tasted like summer. 

The atmosphere managed to be rakish yet elegant.  We will have to try to grab a bit there in the near future...
