When I walked into this surf-esque, tin-shed walled restaurant two words immediately came to mind, Costa Rica and Taco! Well...that?s three but you get the idea. Co-owner Tracey Gardell shares this great little Montauk outpost, with her surfer sons and family. After the horrors of 9/11 Tracey and her clan shipped out from Downtown Manhattan to Montauk, a decision they?ve never regretted. 668 The Gigshack is a global surf cuisine hotspot blasting the vibes of the endless summer lifestyle through kitsch bohemian like decor, rad surfing videos, Pollack inspired art, and plenty of young smiles. The kitchen is spearheaded by Tracey?s 20-year-old son Gray Gardell, the talented creator such items as; ?Montacos?- crispy fish tacos with Mango Salsa and creamy slaw; ?Lamburginis? spiced lamb sliders with aioli and ?The Shack Burger? a Bison goliath with creamy white cheddar.
Pros: friendly people, great tacos and crab-cakes
Cons: it's in Montauk and I don't live there
