Located right on the water dockside at the end of Main Street in Greenport, Scrimshaw Restaurant sustained some of the most water damage during the massive flooding of the village during Hurricane Sandy.
But, like neighboring Claudio’s to the east, Scrimshaw has cleaned up and is ready to open the night before Thanksgiving at the bar and then for their traditional annual Thanksgiving dinner the next day.
Though owner Rosa Ross was not immediately available for comment, she sent Patch an email notifying us of the opening and posted this on her Facebook page during the clean-up:
“Thanks for all the good wishes from all our friends. Scrimshaw sustained a lot of water damage … what a massive job,” she said. “Slowly everything is coming together and there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”
Scrimshaw will be open on Wednesday at 5:30 for bar-fare only, then open on Thanksgiving for a traditional dinner from 1 to 7 p.m. Then it’s back to business as usual for winter hours: dinner, Thursday through Sunday at 5:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday for lunch from 1 to 4 p.m. and dinner at 5:30 p.m.
Ross took her comprehensive culinary background and created an American menu with a splash of Asian fusion at Scrimshaw. Cantonese dumplings are served up along with Roasted Salmon or Butterflied Shrimp. To compliment the unique menu, Scrimshaw offers an extensive wine menu featuring many local wineries.
