THE HARVEST ON FORT POND- MONTAUK NY
This is a fitting first post as it has been a timeless staple for amazing food & atmosphere for anyone visiting Montauk, NY. For anyone who has ever been to the Harvest, their enormous family portions are hard to forget.
I would suggest making reservations a week in advance during the summer as the demand is insane. Good luck.
Immediately as you sit down a large loaf of fresh thick sliced Italian bread is place in front of you, accompanied by grated Parmesan cheese and extra virgin olive oil for dipping. Make sure not to fill up on the bread as I have been doing for the last several years.
If you’ve never been here, then I would ask the server to recommend how many appetizers/pastas & entrees you should order based on the number of people. The servers are well rounded in food and wine and can explain where each of the ingredients comes from and how everything is prepared.
You can’t go wrong with the menu. We have been coming for years and there are certain favorites that must be ordered every time we come or else we do not feel complete. I will mention a few notables:
Appetizers/Salads- Calamari Salad with Red Pepper Vinaigrette (it’s worth coming just for this)
Pastas- Farfalle with Sausage, Peas and Parmesan & Garlic Shrimp and Spaghetti
Entrees- Bruschetta with Mixed Seafood (Mussels, Clams, Scallops and Shrimp) & 32 oz. Porterhouse Steak with Green Peppercorns, Onions and Shallots
The specials change daily and always seem to work their way into our decision making.
Next time you’re at “The End,” make sure you make reservations early and check out the Harvest on Fort Pond and make sure to take a walk out on the dock to feed the ducks, they’re hungry too…
