The Crazy Fork is back.

The Mattituck seafood restaurant reopened from its winter hiatus at 1 p.m. Friday with new entrees, an altered interior and a set of new specials to go along with their updated hours.

The Crazy Fork — located on Main Road across from the Mattituck Plaza — is now serving a lobster chowder dish and sesame-crusted tuna on its menu, said co-owner Dave Distenfeld. The restaurant, which converted from a deli in the summer of 2012, will have $5 appetizers at the bar from 3 to 6 p.m. along with $3.50 for a draft deals.

Ladies Night is also set for all day on Mondays, with $15 entrees, $5 glasses of wine and the same $5 appetizer deal, Mr. Distenfeld said. A counter that split the restaurant has also been removed, allowing for more table space.

The Crazy Fork opened in August 2012, but its season was cut short by superstorm Sandy, he said.

“We had a four month soft open,” he joked. Last year was The Crazy Fork’s first full year.

“It went very well, I think,” Mr. Distenfeld said. “A lot of people were finding out about us last fall. We’re looking to build on that.”

Crazy Fork will be open from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday through Monday until Memorial Day. Then through Labor Day, the restaurant is expected to be open seven days a week.
