While everyone awaits the reopening of Jane Ballroom (soon, we promise), owner Sean MacPherson (of the Hotels Bowery and Jane and the Waverly Inn among others) has another trick up his sleeve. While laying the groundwork for GofG Hamptons, we heard rumors of a new MacPherson restaurant in Montauk. We just checked in with the man himself....
MacPherson has indeed bought The Crow's Nest, which is "nestled in a small private secluded cove" right by the Montauk lighthouse.
And while Crow's Nest is a restaurant (MacPherson and crew have spent the past six months working on a menu), it looks like Jamie Mulholland's Surf Lodge might have some competition on "The End."
"We bought it and I plan on doing it and we will run it as is this season and reopen it as the new, improved Crow's Nest next season."
Exciting, especially as it tops off 10 years of negotiations between MacPherson and the property.
MacPherson has been keeping pretty busy, recently he just bought the old Orso space in LA.
Stay tuned for developments on The Crow's Nest and the imminent Jane re-reveal over the next couple of weeks.
Situated on 3.35 acres, property includes 170 seat restaurant, 14 room inn, and separate cottage overlooking water.
