Fans of the The Crazy Fork, a seafood eatery that launched last August in Mattituck, will be able to head back for a bite as the restaurant reopens to the public again on Friday.
According to chef and co-owner David Distenfeld, The Crazy Fork, which was closed for the months of January and Februry, will reopen Friday after some remodeling - and with some new menu additions, including burgers, steak sandwich, steamers, pan seared salmon and blackened catfish.
"We want to let the people of Mattituck know that we are here," he said.
Distenfeld and business partner Danelle Grzegorczyk moved last AugustAntique Deli, transforming the space with their vision for a casual and affordable family friendly spot for fresh and fried seafood.
"You've got steak, and sushi but no where to go for good seafood here after a movie," Distenfeld said. "We just think people in Mattituck shouldn't have to travel to Southold, Riverhead or Greenport to have a nice sit-down place for a meal of this sort."
The Crazy Fork offers traditional appetizers like oysters on the half shell, clams casino, fish tacos, salads, soups and fried baskets, and sandwiches in the $9 to $15 dollar range. Entrees include stuffed flounder, seafood and chicken gumbo and a five-spiced rubbed tuna, all for under $20.
The restaurant also offers take-out and catering. Distenfeld, a Hampton Bays resident who was trained at the Culinary Institute of America and has worked in restaurants, hotels and private chef situations in New York City, Boston and Long Island, is pleased to be able to bring fresh seafood to residents to locals at an affordable price.
