The Beacon in Sag Harbor will open for its 23rd season on Wednesday, May 12. Dinner service will begin at 5:30 p.m. and new this season will be an intimate downstairs patio to help increase seating and allow for more outdoor dining.

Reservations will be available and can accommodate parties up to 10. A two course $75 per person minimum will be in place for dining in, while the regular a la carte menu will be available for takeout. This is not a prix fixe menu, just a minimum charge due to less seating. The menu will feature old school favorites, as well as specials.

Offerings include starters such as steamed mussels, crispy Portobello and pork belly pretzel buns and entrees like lobster rigatoni, bouillabaisse, halibut baked in parchment and a no pasta vegan lasagna.

The Beacon’s owners are David Loewenberg and Sam McCleland. Loewenberg is widely regarded as one of the East End’s top restaurateurs and McCleland delivers innovative farm-to-table cuisine with novel finesse. The duo also own Bell & Anchor in Noyac.

The Beacon is at 8 West Water Street, Sag Harbor. For reservations or information, visit or call 631-725-7088.
