Swallow East

Located in Montauk just minutes from Gosman’s Dock, Swallow East is a hip, chic eatery that is the true heart and soul of out east. Open for lunch and dinner seven days, Swallow East serves up extraordinarily memorable and flavorful fare. I don’t want to spoil it just yet but I had one of the best plates ever at this seaside spot. I encourage every single one of my readers to come in and dine, sip one of their summery cocktails, and listen to the incredible lineup of live bands scheduled for the season. As soon as my husband, daughter and I stepped inside, it instantly became apparent as to why Swallow East is so positively spoken of. Ever since Swallow East open their doors in 2012, dozens of colleagues, neighbors, and friends, have highly recommended this one-of-a-kind restaurant.

It would be difficult for me to think of more than a handful of restaurants that deserve the amount of praise Swallow East has received. The staff is warm, gracious and treats you like part of the family the second you arrive. Their smiles are genuine and they each took the time to make sure that we were comfortable and settled upon arrival. We sat in one of their spacious rooms adjacent to the dock. I strolled along outside with Sarah for a few minutes while our drink order was placed. The salty sea air was so refreshing yet calming. To drink, I had the Nitro Cold Brew Coffee: Sail Away Cold Brew on Tap ($6) and my husband had the Greenport Summer Ale on tap. I have been a fan of Sail Away for a couple of years and could not resist ordering my favorite cold brew coffee.

The Backyard Restaurant at Solé East 2017

The Backyard Restaurant at Solé East in Montauk is a must visit for locals and visitors who wish to kick back, relax, and enjoy an incredible dinner poolside while listening to singer and guitarist Annie Trezza, who played from 6-9pm. You could easily sit outside (or inside) for hours enjoying a cocktail and your meal while taking breaks from the table playing backyard games and browsing their onsite boutique beach shop, Nibi MTK. It is the perfect spot for the entire family. My daughter loved exploring the property, listening to the live band, and eating dinner with me and my husband. It is rare that a hotel and restaurant offers so much for their guests and is ideally located within minutes of Montauk’s village and the Atlantic Ocean beaches. There is a convenient pathway that will take you right in to town if you wish not to drive.

This past Tuesday’s visit was our first for the season. After arriving early just before 5:30pm, we sat outside at one of their square tables with a perfect viewing point of the live band. We started off with their signature House Cocktail: Hot-Tauk, a mix of Herradura Tequila, Lime, Strawberry, Jalapeño, Cointreau, with a Spicy Salt Rim ($16), their most popular poolside cocktail.

Drink It Tuesday: Tickle Water

Cheers to the upcoming summer! I am thrilled to reintroduce my readers to one of my favorite child-friendly beverage companies, Tickle Water. My favorite characteristic of Tickle Water is that it is perfect for small hands, meaning that it will be ideal for my daughter to bring with her to school and activities. Her favorite is the watermelon and green apple. She calls the Watermelon flavored water “owl bubbles.” It is so cute when she laughs after each sip. We enjoy Tickle Water together during the afternoon while at our pool. The size is also compact and lightweight for bringing to the beach. The tickly taste is so refreshing!
