EaterWrap: Founder of Grace's Famous Hot Dogs Dies, More

1) Sad news on the Island today: Grace Amond, the founder of the iconic Grace's Famous Hot Dogs, has died at 76. Amond's trailer (and subsequent sit-down restaurant) on Route 111 in Manorville were much loved by those on their way to the East End over the years, attracting celebrities and locals alike. Amond opened her first hot dog stand in 1971 and closed her namesake restaurant in 2002. [Newsday]

2) Almond's latest creative pricing attempt is one for the kiddies. Children 'eat for their age' at the Bridgehampton restaurant, every Sunday night. Sadly, there is a $12/12 year old max for all those hopping to pass for a teenager. [Hamptons Online]
3) East Hampton cheese shop Lucy's Whey, which is never short on puns, has introduced Whey to Go, a takeout service. For the fall, two soups will be offered everyday, including the seasonal choice, tomato cheddar. A wide selection of sandwiches and a cheese plate are up for grabs as well. [EH Star]
