  • Hoox It Charters
    If Captains Bill Griswold and Bobby Tambascio didn't have Hoox It Charters, they'd still be out on the water trying to hook the big one. Fortunately for fishermen and hungry grizzly bears, the duo does have a spiffy 46-foot Super Sport yacht for chartering fishing trips. They can search for striped bass, bluefish, and fluke inshore, or venture to the Atlantic for shark, marlin, and swordfish.

  • Pontos Taverna
    The Kiriakidis family arrived in the United States carrying more than their luggage. They also packed some true Old World values: a love of good food and family. Much of their lives was spent working in kitchens, and it became something of a dream to one day open their own eatery. It took time and effort, but under the urging of patriarch Theodoros, the octet of siblings came together to found Pontos Taverna. The family now spends their days making the same food they grew up with, chatting boisterously with one another as they stuff marinated beef with saganaki cheese or grill octopus to tender perfection. Theodoros—or Teddy, as many call him—serves as the head chef, whipping up his signature dessert of cinnamon-infused rice pudding that serves as a cinematic end to any meal, like a plate engraved with the kitchen staff’s names in movie-style credits. How good is the family’s culinary work? The New York Times gave it high praise in a review from December 2012, stating “The… word—triumph—could be used, over all, for Pontos, a great place to go for a family-style Greek ‘fix,’ and a budget fix as well.”

Lush greenery and wooden fences also extend to both the modern skeet and five-stand courses, where onsite specialists teach the English Churchill method of shotgun hunting. In addition, fly fishing instruction comes in handy during guided fishing trips arranged by the staff.
