This time of year it’s great to breathe in the Spring air and keep your eyes peeled for all kinds of babies. Here are some of our favorite new additions in Montauk and the Hamptons. Jill captured these little foxes, Lynn lives just up the hill from these baby goslings. And, Amanda (who we miss terribly) introduced her boy, Dylan, to the world.
Of course there are new businesses popping up all over MTK, too.
New in MTK:
Neesa Peterson is bringing her Imperial Woodpecker Sno-Balls (N’Awleans style shaved ice) to Montauk this summer. Look for her truck at Ditch!
Nicole Meehan and her husband have opened Gringos Burrito Grill (668 7500, 805 Montauk Hwy.) Burritos, soft tacos, hard tacos, salad bowls. So yummy.
La Bodega has become La Brisa de Tacombi (804-9180, 752 Montauk Hwy.). Damian and Dario, partners behind the restaurant in the West Village are bringing their tacoria to MTK. Dario, born in Mexico, says they taste like his mom used to make, only better.
