LDV Hospitality, a restaurant group that owns and operates 20 food and beverage venues across the country, has partnered with Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa to bring an elevated events program and five new food and beverage concepts to Montauk, New York.
This spring, the oceanfront resort will deliver a new guest experience year-round with LDV Hospitality overseeing all of the food and beverage operations throughout the property.
To match the reimagined direction, designer Michael Kramer of Michael Thomas & Co., who headed up the successful renovation of Gurney's last summer, will bring a new look to the food and beverage outlets. Kramer’s eclectic and nostalgic mixture of styles seamlessly blends bohemian beach chic and mid-century modern, resulting in a polished yet casual atmosphere.
LDV Hospitality’s Scarpetta makes its way east with Scarpetta Beach, the beachfront version of its original Meatpacking District location. The soulful Italian hotspot will deliver signature classics like fresh handmade pastas, in addition to more locally influenced dishes, showcasing the best of Long Island’s seafood and produce. To pair, guests will enjoy Scarpetta Beach’s robust Italian wine list.
Inspired by Gurney’s sprawling 1,000 ft. private beach, Scarpetta Beach boasts an airy, mid-century modern aesthetic infused with the Indigo and seaside hues of the resort’s surroundings. The 110-seat interior dining room and private dining space is lined with French doors leading out to the restaurant’s outdoor terrace, which seats an additional 100, and provides ocean views. Scarpetta Beach will be open from May 1st through Labor Day, serving dinner daily from 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Located in the lobby entrance of Gurney’s, Corso Coffee, LDV Hospitality’s Italian-style coffee bar, will offer a variety of artisanal coffees from handcrafted, wood-roasted, Tuscan espresso to American beans roasted locally in Long Island City. In addition to their café offerings, Corso Coffee will also serve a grab-and-go menu of freshly baked breakfast pastries, sandwiches, salads, as well as gelato and fresh juices. Corso Coffee will be open year-round, serving daily from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
The Regent Cocktail Club
Led by managing partner and acclaimed bartender Julio Cabrera, The Regent Cocktail Club will be the Resort’s crafted cocktail and lounge experience, with seating in both the indoor lounge and the outdoor tented deck.
Like its sister property in Miami Beach, The Regent Cocktail Club emphasizes consistency and quality. Cabrera will curate a daily rotating menu of classic cocktails, inspired by the stories they tell and the rich history of Miami’s Regent Hotel circa 1941, the lounge’s namesake.
The Regent Cocktail Club’s high-energy nighttime atmosphere will feature a DJ on weekends. The Regent Cocktail Club will be open year-round, daily from 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
Tillie’s, LDV Hospitality’s newest concept, will be an American kitchen that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, with brunch available on Sundays. Guests will enjoy Tillie’s approachable menu of seasonally driven comfort classics and American favorites.
The bistro-style space has a casual elegance, white-washed with white oak accents and banquettes throughout. Tillie’s will be open year-round, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
The Beach Club at Gurney’s
Beach goers can head to The Beach Club’s Bar & Grill, which will offer a selection of light appetizers, sandwiches, and salads. Every Saturday, The Beach Club Bar & Grill will host a ticketed Saturday BBQ featuring grilled seafood favorites and barbecue classics. The Beach Club at Gurney’s will be open Memorial Day through Labor Day daily from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
