Lunch Plans: Puerto Rican Diner Food at La Bodega
June 28, 2012 | East End Eats
Serving Puerto Rican fusion in a colorful former Greek diner that now feels more like a Miami café, La Bodega is downtown Montauk’s newest casual dining option.
Opened by local partners Paulette Davis (who winters in Puerto Rico) and former town board member Julia Prince, together with Jose Rodriguez, the restaurant serves breakfast all day, as well as lunch and dinner.
The lengthy menu includes diner classics like a granola bowl and a turkey club, plus more Latin-inspired dishes. Try the avocado toast, which combines cool avocado with buttered Los Cidrines toast, chile flakes, and honey or the Bodega Dog, made with two beef hot dogs, sweet red onions, pickles, and special jalapeño sauce.
Ultra-refreshing yet decadent shakes include the signature Soy So Happy, made with soy milk, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, and peanut butter and the Orange Julius, which has a creamsicle flavor with vanilla ice cream, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and whipped cream.
If you’re the kind of person who enjoys a nice, cold (alcoholic) beverage with your lunch, you won’t be disappointed. La Bodega recently received a full liquor license. 752 Montauk Highway, Montauk, 668-8338
