I started building on the Lobster Inn, little things here and there. Then I did the furniture for Sea Spray and went back and did the upstairs portion of the Lobster Inn. I built my own first restaurant in '79, The Secret Road Inn in Miller Place, in Daniel Miller's 1824 House. My second restaurant was Galea, on the bay in Shinnecock Hills. That was enough of owning them for me. The next one, for my friend Brian, was the Wild Rose in Bridgehampton, followed by Harbor Rose in Sag Harbor. NV Tsunami in East Hampton, the the bar at Phao in Sag Harbor. I then designed and built the World Pie in Miami, the bar at Maidstone arms in East Hampton and the now defunct restaurant, Tombi in East Hampton. I still love making anything for Toyo of Suki Zuki of Watermill because the trading is the best.
