KDHamptons Feast End: Richie Notar's Harlow East On The Dock Every Friday, Saturday & Sunday
If your choice of restaurants is on the pulse of the hottest new Hamptons hotspots, you may already know about Harlow East, the latest new outpost of famed restaurateur Rich Notar [Notar Hospitality]. The approachable menu of simple yet elegant cuisine will be created by Harlow’s Executive Chef Danny Ye. Notar recently partnered with Jim Pallotta, Jon Krasner and Michael Barrett to create Harlow, a full-service restaurant, parlor and café in midtown Manhattan. Located at 56th and Park, the European-inspired restaurant features a grand oyster bar, an interior wall of ivy in a conservatory that is flooded with natural light and contemporary art installations. The main dining room retains the original stained glass windows and chandeliers from the 1930’s, when actress Marion Davies used the space for personal entertaining. With the success of Harlow NYC blazing hot, Notar launched a sister restaurant, Harlow East, in Sag Harbor this summer.
I’m excited for the opportunity to work with the amazing natural resources on Long Island, utilizing regional farmers, fishermen and vineyards to produce the best quality local food and drink,” Richie said. Harlow will showcase the bounty of the north fork, highlighting produce from local wineries and farms including Sang Lee, KK The Farm, and Satur Farms. The raw bar will feature Island Creek Oysters, Long Island shellfish and seafood from Gosman’s. As a three-meal a day restaurant, Richie sees the east end location as a meeting place for visitors and locals alike where guests can enjoy everything from coffee and croissants in the morning to cocktails and crudo at night.
For the duration of the summer, Harlow East is hosting Back Bar BBQs on their dock every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 6pm – close. The menu will change weekly – last weekend Chef Danny Ye was smoking brats and brisket and this weekend guests can feast on BBQ beef sandwiches, grilled corn on the cob and macaroni salad. With a beer or a glass of rosé, the whole feast runs diners only $25. No reservations needed – just come around back and relax with some delicious BBQ food and beverage. This weekend guests can snack on smoked BBQ beans, and the live music will be played by Hamptons regulars Aljam and the Reggaelution Band.
Similar to the New York menu, Ye will offer an extensive raw bar selection and menu favorites from the city location, such as the Branzino with wasabi stem gremolata and crispy hearts of palm, Salmon with chipotle corn, Asian pear & cilantro salad in a miso reduction, and Lamb Meatballs with Kochujang marinara, mint, and pickled red onions. Tartines on the current lunch menu, including lamb, mushroom, and grilled shrimp varieties, will also have a presence out east as the restaurant focuses on lighter fare that evokes the summer.
Nobody knows hospitality better than Richie Notar. The Queens native started his career in the industry as a “busboy” at Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell‘s Studio 54. After working as a chef in some of the city’s top restaurants, he opened the very first group of “boutique hotels” for Morgan’s Hotel Group, and eventually served as the General Manager of the original Nobu — and only two years later, became the company’s Managing Partner for the past 19 years.
