New York City chef restaurateur PJ Calapa is taking over Astro’s Pizza in Amagansett, alongside investor and Resy co-founder Ben Leventhal. Calapa, who owns Scampi and The Spaniard, will offer his take on traditional Italian dishes and pizza, complete with a full bar.
Roberta’s has opened in Montauk. Co-founders Brandon Hoy and Carlo Mirarchi took over the former Arbor space, which is 5,400 square feet, includes an outside patio and two bars and seats close to 165. Look for at least a half-dozen pizzas, including its signature “Ursula’s Parade” with Littleneck clams, mozzarella, and calabrian chili. Bread baked to order in the wood oven will accompany house-made stracciatella. Pastas will feature local fish and shellfish. Natural wines, fresh cocktails, and draft beers from some of the most interesting breweries around will keep the party going. Inventive desserts, such as a bay leaf panna cotta and root beer soft serve ice cream will round out the menu.
