Out East bringing a coastal taste of Long Island to 6th Street

As we first noted back in the summer,, veteran restaurateur Peter Kane (Bowery Meat Company, Stanton Social, Essex & Beauty, etc.) is opening a two-level restaurant called Out East on 509 E. Sixth St. between Avenue A and Avenue B.

Reps from Out East, whose team includes chef Tim Meyers (Charlie Bird) and Anthony Serignese (formerly of Beauty & Essex and Stanton Social), released more details about the venture.

As Eater noted:

Out East will serve "New American fare with influences from the coastal regions of Long Island." It’s largely inspired by the beach, which is the partners’ "preferred downtime destination."

Apparently the restaurant will be a spot for any New Yorkers who want to leave the city but do not want to actually go to Long Island: "Out East is the stylish, coastal cosmopolitan, downtown dining destination that transports guests away from the city for a night."

Well, it's really a quiet block for a downtown dining destination. Apparently some neighbors are cool with this: According to CB3, there were 52 signatures of support from area residents when the full liquor license went up for approval last July.

In any event, Out East will have a seafood-centric menu with a raw bar. Out East is expected to open next month.

I think people who want Hamptons/beach food should have to go to Long Island to get it. We have enough grit here without needing a side order of sand.

Coastal Long Island fusion? Geflilte Fish l'orange, anyone? Boy, how desperate is the restaurant industry getting just to lure foodie's.

Wow, those guys run the douchiest restaurants that, yes, have good food, but cater to the most non-residential, loud and obnoxious yuppie crowds ever. I can't believe they're opening on that block.

Long Island Coastal? Bad Italian food that's overpriced and not that good? Huge portions.
