Handmade Food at Montauk House

October 29, 2017 Elizabeth Berry 0

Ten minutes from the Connecticut College campus stands a cafe which prides itself on handcrafted food. One can spot it from the wooden picnic tables out front, a feature that reminded me of a lobster shack on Cape Cod. Inside are wooden tables and chairs with orange cushions, and the kitchen is visible to the customer’s eye. When you first walk into the restaurant, a chalkboard displays the menu. It’s the only one, as Montauk does not use printed menus. Instead, they keep the chalkboard up-to-date, and it currently features several sandwiches, tacos, salads, and soups. Montauk brings a delicious new meaning to hand-crafted food and the setting for such a meal—at home rather than in a cafe.
