Nello’s Summertime has checked out of Southampton, though the Madison Avenue flagship remains.
In its place out East is Nammos.
Still using Nello’s’ old phone number, the restaurant is Greek, named for the white sand of Mykanos.
The 185-seat restaurant will focus on Greek seafood.
The signature dish is soft shell crab moussaka — and the price will be far lower than what Nello’s once charged
Thomas Makkos is one of the owners, and the restaurant is run by some of the old crew from nearby Trata.
Elsewhere on the East End, Osteria Salina is opening in the former Copa space at 95 School St. in Bridgehampton.
Salina, named after an Aeolian Island off the coast of Sicily, is a New Sicilian-inspired eatery. Owner Chris Boudouris retained Timothy Gaglio’s Integral Food & Beverage Consultants to deliver the vision.
The kitchen will be headed by Cinzia Gaglio, of Sora, Italy, where her great-grandfather owned a restaurant and general store that included everything from bocce courts to pastas, pizzas, salted meats and wine.
Osteria Salina will open with a special Mother’s Day brunch menu on May 13 before its public opening on May 18. The restaurant seats 140 inside and out.
Dan’s Taste of Two Forks is back for its second annual event on July 14, Bastille Day, at Sayre Park in Bridgehampton.
This year, Jean-Georges Vongerichten will host the event along with fashion designer Nicole Miller.
