Larry Kolar

Backyard Restaurant at Solé East Resort, Montauk, NY; and On the Forks Catering, Huntington, NY, and Montauk, NY

Amid the surfboards and dune beaches of the Hamptons’ picturesque Montauk lies the chic Solé East Resort, where jet-setting Manhattanites gather for sun, sand, and top-notch dining. At the property’s luxe yet laid-back Backyard Restaurant, Larry Kolar delivers local, sustainable, and eclectic cuisine that celebrates the East End’s bountiful landscape.
