Hitting a road-side spot for Lobster in the Hamptons…

Roadside Lobster at Clam Bar in the Hamptons

Roadside Lobster at Clam Bar in the Hamptons

The Hamptons are known for many things – polo, pristine beaches, hip night clubs, huge mansions, charming villages and deliciously fresh seafood. There are a number of superb seafood spots that line Route 27 (the Montauk Highway) and these roadside cafes and bars can sometimes be so busy that the crowds are almost spilling into the dusty road. Between Amagansett and Montauk is Clam Bar, this relaxed and popular roadside restautant is a busy place for locals and visitors alike and with the quintessential Long Island menu of lobster, clams, mussels and chowder it is a fine choice for lunch or a late afternoon snack stop. With the beach just steps away pick up the perfect lobster roll from Clam Bar and eat overlooking the ocean, or stop by en route to Montauk and tuck into a full lobster, dipping the fleshy claws into a pot of melted butter with corn-on-the-cob on the side. It is a messy lunch for sure, but in this part of the Hamptons there is no dress code so let the butter ooze down your chin then run into the ocean afterwards to wash it all off, what could be more perfect?
