Happy Labor Day, friends and neighbors! Be safe out there this weekend.Tim Burke of 230 Elm and Lobster Grille fame has opened up the Backbar Grille over next to Tully’s Seafood Market (formerly the Before the Bridge restaurant and most recently T.R.’s) here in Hampton Bays.
Tim tells me that the new place has an eclectic menu with a nice selection of appetizers, burgers, sandwiches and entrée choices. They will be serving lunch and dinner, year-round, seven days a week. And, yes, there are lots of big-screen TVs for all of you sports fans out there. Stop by and check it out.
