CowFish, the newest addition to the Hampton Bays dining scene, is quickly becoming the talk of the town. The gorgeous waterfront location that once housed Indian Cove Restaurant is run by executive chef and owners David and Rachel Hersh. David and Rachel are also the creative minds behind Rumba down the street from CowFish.

The dining room has been transformed into a bright and airy hot spot that has become a destination for seafood lovers and foodies alike. Situated on Shinnecock Bay, CowFish holds two floors of indoor and outdoor seating along with an outdoor bar.
On Sunday some friends and I stopped by for the restaurants weekly jazz brunch. During brunch we were serenaded by a barbershop duo in pinstripe coats. We tried the blackened fish sandwich, a cajun grilled white fish with housemaid tartar, bibb lettuce, tomato and onion. Also a rotisserie chicken with spanish rice and pan drippings. Another brunch favorite, steak with poached eggs and a béarnaise sauce.
CowFish serves the best in seafood, steaks and rotisserie meats. Looking for a cocktail on the outdoor patio? Try "The Bearded Lady" made with Jack Daniel's Honey, pink guava puree, basil leaves, soda and lime, or "The Bees Knees," made with Dorothy Parker American Gin, honey and lemon juice.
CowFish is open Tuesday through Sunday. Come by land or sea.
