WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Locals to Hampton Bays might have noticed a change on Montauk Highway in the summer of 2018. The best-kept secret known as Orlando’s Cafe was…gone. And those of us who’d had the luck to be able to eat there mourned. But with every door that closes, another opens.
Orlando sold off his business, located at 40 W. Montauk Highway, and the folks who have taken it on are definitely living up to the glory that was the original Orlando’s. They seem to have kept the kitchen staff in place, and the legendary food quality–like your abuela’s homecooking–still exists.
The new place is a Peruvian concept, whereas Orlando’s in its original form was an homage to the namesake’s home country of Costa Rica. Regardless, you’re going there for no-frills Latin American food that’s going to be the most memorable meal of your weekend, month, entire summer. It’s just actually that good.
Pro tip: do NOT skip the zeppoles. They’re just fried dough, except so much more.
