The newest Napper Tandy’s opened in the old Nutty Irishman building at 60 East Main Street, which once upon a time served as a firehouse in the middle of the downtown.
Work started in January 2017 and the old Nutty received a top-to-bottom renovation. The main bar has been moved toward to the front of the building, on the western wall, and there are several areas for eating and drinking on the first floor. The overall style of decor is modern meets old-fashioned.
The pub menu is similar those at the other Napper Tandy’s locations, featuring classic American comfort food along with some special creations from the Bay Shore chef. Among those, the Brussels sprouts app, Jameson steak, and pan seared scallops entree have proven popular.
The ownership team in Bay Shore also expects to be busy catering private events and special events on its spacious second floor — where they offer more of a a coastal vibe.
We went with the aqua bar and added lots of windows in the back for natural light. We’re on the South Shore so we wanted it to have that Main Street, but also a by-the-water feel.
There’s also an elevator for easier access to the second floor. We wanted to make it comfortable for all guests to go upstairs.
There’s a lot of great things happening in Bay Shore and we definitely want to be a part of it. Since Day 1 everyone in the area has been more than helpful, which is another cool thing, that sense of community.
Napper Tandy’s looks forward to serving the Bay Shore community for many years to come!
