New Jacob Riis restaurant means you never have to stop going to the beach

Last weekend, a new destination restaurant opened in a pretty unexpected destination, at least for fall and winter.

Wildfeast at Riis is operating out of the historic Bay 9 building that housed the food vendors at this past summer’s Riis Park Beach Bazaar. The restaurant, run by the fresh food purveyor Wild Feast Foods, will be serving their trademark local seafood at the venue as well as pastured meats and fresh produce. There will also be a bar in the grotto pavilion, run by RPBB, called Riis Point Bar and serving beer, wine and craft cocktails.

You may not be doing much laying out, but at least you have an excuse to go to the beach in November now!

If you’re interested in making a weekend outing to the new seaside establishment, there’s a brunch menu that will be served from 10am until 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays with farm fresh eggs from the North Fork of Long Island. The wild caught lobster omelet will set you back a mere $15 and a $20 afternoon tea for two menu should provide for some fairly dramatic views while you sip your Earl Grey.

Stay tuned to Wild Feast Foods’ Facebook page for information on upcoming events including a crab boil, Harvest Festival, Halloween concert and live music series, and start planning your best late-October beach goth looks immediately.
