It’s just a month away….!

April 9th, 2016

The rakes, the paint brushes, the dusters, the vacuums are all out as the Pridwin awakens from her winter slumber.    The Pridwin will gently open (cottages only) on May 6, after which we will host some weekend weddings followed by Memorial Day weekend (May 27-30) when we will be open to the public for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We can’t wait to try out new recipes for the summer menu, as well as a selection of new cocktails and other libations at the bar.   And we so look forward to Captain Dick Petry and his son Gregg getting out on the water to bring in the first Pridwin caught fish of the season.

This year the Pridwin summer season begins on Sunday, June 19 with our first dinner, followed by breakfast, lunch and dinner service daily throughout the summer through Labor Day.

The first Pridwin cookout of the season will be on Saturday, July 2nd in celebration of July 4th weekend.

The first Wednesday night cookout of 2016 will be held on July 6th with live music by Majik!

We can’t wait!


“Pridwin-Caught” Fish…continued!

August 15th, 2015

It’s been a great summer at the Pridwin.    Wonderful weather, a mix of splendid guests, fantastic sunsets, delightful new lunch and dinner menu by our executive chef Swainson Brown, and delicious drinks of all varieties invented and perfected by our food and beverage manager JP Torrealba.     We can’t forget to mention some truly excellent Wednesday night cookouts, keeping the legend alive.

And what about the Pridwin-Caught fish?    Well, dare we say the fresh fish this season courtesy of Captains Dick Petry and son Gregg have been ‘off the hook’!  (pun intended, we suppose?).

The fluke and striped bass have been divine, but it’s also been the year of the black sea bass.   Is there a more delicious, delicate fish than the black sea bass?   We will keep searching.   But in the meantime, black sea bass pan seared over fingerling potatoes with frisee and sauce gribiche is one of the best things we have ever had.  Thanks Swainson!

Of course, the Pridwin crew lives for the off-shore fishing trip and this year has not disappointed as you can see in the photo: Nick and Tom with a 250 plus pound Big Eye tuna, one of two Big Eyes caught on the trip along with some yellow fins and mahi mahi.      That was one happy bunch of fisherman returning to the Pridwin dock..       And a lot of happy customers partaking in the fresh Big Eye and yellow fin served in the restaurant (tuna burgers at lunch!) and at the cookout.

The boat was out two days ago (more sea bass!) and going out again this coming week.  Wish them luck.

The Pridwin restaurant and bar is open for three more weeks, closing with dinner on Labor Day Monday evening.      Please come on over for a visit, some fresh fish, great food, drink and……the view.


Rainbows Everywhere

June 28th, 2015

We are very excited the summer season has begun at the Pridwin, which means we are now serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily to our hotel guests and the public. The bar is open daily too, serving an inventive new mix of cocktails, aguas frescas (non-alcoholic elixirs), local wine and beers and many other refreshments…..with our incredible view.

We were greeted by a rainbow on opening night, a beautiful auspicious sign. And then this week the Supreme Court permitted the rainbow to spread across the nation. What a great start to the summer!

Please come visit us this summer. You can make dinner reservations online here on our website or by calling (631) 749-0476. And, don’t’ forget our Wednesday night cookouts, which begin this week, July 1.

Happy summer!
