Just about a year into its tenure on Broome Street, the Lucky Bee is spreading its wings of expansion. To the North Fork.

As previously mentioned, former Fat Radish chef Matty Bennett and partner Rupert Noffs are at the helm of the LES Southeast Asian (i.e. Thai) “street food” eatery, and are making moves to open their second permanent outpost. This all came about presumably after a successful pop-up stint at Carolyn Rusin’s Gallery Hotel this past September.

Noffs candidly told Hamptons.com that “We love Greenport – it’s like being in the South of France … It reminds me of an ‘American St. Tropez!'” He further promises that they’ll “transform the spot into a beautiful, tropical Southeast Asian hideaway with palms trees, lounges and lanterns … There will also be a beautiful bar inside. Our most popular cocktail is served in a coconut and it’s called “LUCKY YOU” – we crack it open after you’ve finished so you can eat the yummy flesh … It’s healthy but a little naughty.” Right.

It’s no surprise that the duo will bring along their locally sourced food values to Greenport. “Everything fresh, daily, from the local markets,” he said. “We’ll be having a very similar menu to our Lower East Side location – out East – and adding a few exciting, additional items!”

And as far as timeframe is concerned, this iteration of Lucky Bee hopes to be to open from Memorial Day until Halloween. It’ll be located at 314 Main Street, Greenport.

Only time will tell if this furthers their bee farm aspirations
