Tauk Kitchen + Bar Brings Beachy Vibes to Downtown Armonk

The Montauk-inspired restaurant opened in April of this year.

When I think of Montauk, I think of a relaxing place that is beach-and-ocean centric,” says Francis Leone, owner of Tauk Kitchen + Bar, a Montauk-inspired restaurant that opened in Armonk in April. “[In Montauk] there is a diverse crowd of sophisticated people looking for fun atmosphere and simple, fresh food. I wanted to bring that same Hamptons flare to Armonk.”

To create a space that would transport diners to the beach community, Leone put the focus on design. “I wanted to outdo any build I had ever done,” says Leone, who employed a color palette of sandy beiges, watery blues, and grays. “People can enjoy a beachy vibe all year, indoors or outdoors.” The concrete bar was designed to look like tidal sand, and the flooring is driftwood-inspired porcelain tile. On the walls, brightly colored posters and photographs display images of Montauk.

Also on the menu: Farm-sourced salads like this grilled wedge with blue cheese, tacos, sandwiches, and a handful of mains.

Chef John Poiarkoff, previously of Restaurant North, is currently consulting on the menu, which is largely sourced from New York State farms and fisheries. Naturally, seafood — buttered lobster rolls, yellowfin tuna poké, chowder with charred corn and bacon, and Baja fish tacos topped with Brussels sprouts slaw — constitutes a large part of the menu. The bar pours cocktails and craft beers, including drafts from (where else?) Montauk.
