With its beachy bohemian setting and prime perch overlooking Montauk Lake, The Crow’s Nest channels a chic Tulum-y vibe via its guest rooms and restaurant/bar. Customers kick back cocktails spiked with Thai basil and fennel, either outside on the patio, at the beach, or within the African textile-bedecked bar, which sits adjacent to the dining room. Dinner leans toward a seaside Mediterranean/Middle Eastern menu of local seafood like Local Lobster Fettuccine; and East Coast Halibut with harissa and chickpeas; plus an abundance of veggie plates like Grilled Asparagus with lemon and za’atar. Definitely reserve in advance as this is a super popular, see-and-be-seen destination.
