Duryea’s Dock was receiving customers from both land and sea for the Memorial Day weekend. The legal back and forth between the neighbors, the Town of East Hampton, and the owner of Duryea’s, Marc Rowan, continued last week with a hearing before the town’s Zoning Board of Appeals, but a state court judge, David Reilly, has ruled that Duryea’s Lobster Deck can continue to operate as a restaurant, at least for the 2019 season. The ultimate fate of the restaurant, and the various issues around the establishment, will likely be decided in state court.
