Custom furnishings by Grain Surfboards
Brain Schopfer of local Amagansett maker Grain Surfboards was introduced to EMP’s Will Guidara by the CEO of Shake Shack after he shaped a board in Schopfer’s shop. In tandem with his furniture fabrication arm, Stick and Stone, Schopfer fashioned two surfboards that hang on the walls, four swings, a walnut banquette table, and mirrors made out of wine barrels.
Large-format dishes and cocktails
In true summer form, shareable picnic-style meals are served on the patio. Two options: the lobster boil, cooked in a tomato-herb broth with clams, shrimp, spicy sausage, potatoes, corn and seasonal vegetables; and, new this year, DIY tacos with grilled black bass or braised short rib. Fans of the Humm-led NoMad Bar in Manhattan will recognize the arrival of its supersized Cocktail Explosions, communal tiki drinks presented in massive glass vessels and dispensed from a spigot.
