Allegiance Personal Training To Open In East Hampton

Allegiance Personal Training announced this week it is preparing to open its group personal training club at 289 Springs Fireplace Road in East Hampton.

Allegiance Personal Training, a new, family-run business owned by Brook Hartnett, his mother Katherine Mitchell and staffed by younger brother Denis Hartnett, newly graduated from SUNY Geneseo, is getting ready to open as soon as gym facilities are allowed.

Brook Hartnett, a U.S. Navy veteran, has spent the past two years becoming an expert in fitness and is passionate about the value of personal training versus large bootcamp classes. He has been offering live small-group personal training via Zoom throughout the COVID-19 quarantine and is looking forward to being able to offer face-to-face training in an exciting new space, he said in a press release issued late last week.

Mr. Hartnett said he is committed to designing a systematic approach to deliver the personalized benefits of one-on-one training workouts in an affordable small-group format. With groups of two to four, Allegiance Personal Training aims to provide high quality fitness with a customized workout routine, while also giving each member the fun, energy, and support of the group.

The family took over the space at 289 Springs Fireplace Road one week ago, and are already working hard to prepare it to open. The facility is being cleaned, painted, and prepared to offer its members workouts in small groups with plenty of space between each person. The fitness club will be cleaned and sanitized continuously throughout the day, with hand sanitizing and cleaning stations throughout the facility and optional masks and gloves available.

Duryea’s Lobster Deck Will Open Duryea’s Orient Point

Duryea’s Lobster Deck will open its second location on Friday, June 26, on the North Fork.
At the former Orient by the Sea, Duryea’s Orient Point at 40200 Main Road will feature both indoor and outdoor seating, a full bar and lounge area — all with a water view. The 3,000-square-foot space will feature a casual rustic style with a design that highlights the waterfront location. Natural wood tables paired with bamboo seating set the stage for dining with views of Gardiner’s Bay.

Managing partner Steven Jauffrineau will oversee operations while executive chef Philippe Corbet is the culinary director.

The Mediterranean vibe continues on the menu alongside Duryea’s signature dishes such as the lobster Cobb salad, lobster roll, tuna tartare and fresh crudité. A commitment to North Fork products will be prevalent throughout the menu, according to a press release issued late last week, including an extensive raw bar selection that highlights seafood from the surrounding waters, including oysters, clams and lobster. Larger seafood platters offer a sampling of fresh seafood such as the Oyster Paradise Tower with four different local oysters and the Orient Tower with oysters, snow crab claws, jumbo shrimp, little neck clams and tuna tartare. In addition to the famous Duryea’s crudité, other appetizers include a lightly fried veggie basket with tzatziki and Halloumi cheese and a selection of Mediterranean spreads including hummus, green tahini, salted-cod tarama, Greek olives and grilled flat bread.

In addition to the lobster roll, available hot or cold, the menu offers a braised lamb gyro, falafel gyro and a cheeseburger with fries, as well as a selection of entrée salads.

Shared entrées for two include 2-pound lobsters, farm-to-table vegetable kabobs, grilled lobster pasta, mussels mariniere, grilled branzino, lemon pepper organic chicken and a 20-ounce New York strip steak with family-style sides also available.

Duryea’s Orient Point will offer several transient boat slips at the marina accommodating up to 75-foot vessels and will be open from noon to 11 p.m., Wednesday through Monday. For more information, visit
