Invaluable provider of East End intel, Hamptons Chatter, has been laying low for the past few months, but he popped back up today with some Sag Harbor food news.
Item #1: Michael Gluckman (previously of The Lodge, The Boathouse, and The Beach House) is headed to the space recently vacated by the New Paradise Cafe. We've been wondering when he'd be making his return to the East End's dining scene?this is the longest he's gone without an eatery to call his own in years. No word on an opening date, but Mr. Gluckman is hoping for a menu and vibe similar to that of The Lodge.
Item #2: Though Phao's unexpected closure was said to be only temporary, according to Hamptons Chatter sources, they're "going the way of the 8-track tape." Perhaps the demand for $22 pad thai just wasn't there.
