Wölffer Kitchen & Red Maple at The Chequit Featured in Wine Spectator

Sag Harbor’s Wölffer Kitchen and the Red Maple at The Chequit on Shelter Island are both featured in this month’s issue of Wine Spectator, available on newsstands now. The feature, written by Samantha Falewee, highlights the two restaurants — as well as Wölffer’s Sagaponack vineyard in its “Travel” section.

“A Mediterranean influence shows in dishes like lollipop lamb chops with crispy chickpeas, while a mural of fruits and summer flowers brightens the restaurant’s clean, contemporary look. In a nod to the region’s growing wine appreciation, Wölffer’s winemaker dinner series supports local organizations including the Long Island Merlot Alliance,” writes Ms. Falewee of Wölffer Kitchen.

“The inn’s restaurant, Red Maple, is hitting its stride after opening a year ago,” she writes about The Chequit. “The new summer menu has seaside fare like Montauk fluke cooked with white wine in parchment paper, while the wine list offers 55 selections that include lesser-known options like Grenache Blanc and Pinot Bianco. On the porch, guests can dine under the restaurant’s namesake 50-foot maple tree.”

Arbor Opens in Montauk

The new restaurant Arbor (www.arbormontauk.com), located at 240 Fort Pond Road in Montauk, opened earlier this month. In the space formerly occupied by Ciao by the Beach, Arbor offers a Mediterranean style menu. Owned by Apollo Global Management co-founder, Marc Rowan, Arbor will be under the direction of Managing Director Steven Jauffrineau and Executive Chef Pierre Sudre.  Mr. Jauffrineau brings his experience from the highly acclaimed Manhattan French bistro La Goulue and Shelter Island’s Sunset Beach. Chef Sudre, who hails from a small village in the South of France, sharpened his culinary expertise with the Sofitel Hotel group in Miami, Houston and Los Angeles.

The design of the restaurant is a collaboration between Alden Fenwick Design, Mr. Rowan and Mr. Jauffrineau. The style echoes that of a Mediterranean wine and beer bistro. The exterior space is highlighted by an arbor entrance and is surrounded by lush gardens and features a circular outdoor bar. The semi-private dining area is flanked by the impressive wine cellar featuring floor to ceiling glass walls.

The Mediterranean influenced menu created by Chef Sudre appetizers ranging from $11 to $17, including raw bar selections such as crab dijonaise and local clams; charcuterie and cheese plates featuring duck rillette and cured meats; salads such as cucumber and watermelon salad with sea bean, mint and yogurt and Bibb lettuce salad with roasted pumpkin seeds and radishes; and small plates such as grilled merguez with braised lentil, bell peppers, soffrito and Dijon mustard and charbroiled oysters with blue cheese butter. Main plates range from $24 to $36 and include Gambas skewer with braised fennel and lemon; and free-range chicken with roasted potatoes, lemon and basil.  There will also be a selection of homemade pizzas such as the roasted pear and prosciutto with arugula and mozzarella and the seafood pizza with crab, sun dried tomatoes, shredded mozzarella and caramelized onions.

Arbor will serve lunch and dinner seven days a week in season.  For more information contact Arbor at (631) 238-5430.
