Big news from the Ruschmeyer’s camp. Aussie Nick Mathers who operates a handful of hip, well-dressed eateries in Los Angeles––like the iconic Eveleigh and newer Elephante––is taking over food and drinks at this expansive Montauk property to launch an extension of his popular, seasonally-driven NYC café, Ruby’s. His longtime friend and culinary director Thomas Lim will take charge of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with day-to-day operations overseen by chef Jon Meraviglia. Expect wood-fired pizzas and local seafood preps, plus signatures like the popular Classic Cheeseburger and Crispy Rice Bowl salad. As a refresher, Ruschmeyer’s operates as a boutique hotel composed of free-standing cabins that date back to the 1950s. Hospitality pro Ben Pundole put the place on the map a decade ago when he revamped it, but over the years Ruschmeyer’s has become more of a booze-soaked, bottle service summer party joint catering to a 20-something clientele.
Opening: May 26
