Dan’s ClambakeMTK, returned this year after much acclaim as a sold-out debut event in 2016. Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa hosted this ocean-side food-and-drink celebration, where guests were invited to sip, savor and dance the night away just feet above the sand. And it was more than just incredible clams with surf & turf on the menu: Dan’s ClambakeMTK once again highlighted coastal cuisine from renowned chefs across the East End and beyond, from restaurants such as Duryea’s Lobster Deck, Westlake Fish House, Seamore’s and Smokin’ Wolf BBQ & More! Hosting this phenomenal event was Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian of Food Network’s Chopped, The Kitchen, Top 5 and his newest primetime hit, Cooks vs. Cons, author of celebrated cookbook “My Perfect Pantry,” and Chef/Owner of The Lambs Club, The National in NYC, The National in Greenwich, CT, The Water Club at Borgata in Atlantic City, Georgie and The Garden Bar at Montage Beverly Hills, Point Royal and Counterpoint at The Diplomat Beach Resort and co-creator of Pro For Home food storage system, alongside his wife Margaret Zakarian, President of Zakarian Hospitality, co-author of “My Perfect Pantry” and co-creator of Pro For Home food storage container system.
