Drew's Bayshore Bistro

I know Drew's was damaged by Sandy. Wondering if it had reopened yet?

        1. It's going to be 'off the boards' for a good bit based on the damage they incurred. A dear friend of mine's son was a line chef there - after applying for U/E (seeing the handwriting on the wall with respect to Drew's), he eventually found a home and employment at David Santo's new restaurant in the West Village.

          1. Per their Facebook post they are reopening and secured a new location.

            It's official - 'Movin' on up, to the East Side' - Moving to the East side of East Front Street, Church Street to be exact!'Finally got a piece of the pie' - Moving to a former bakery!'Took a whole lot of trying, just to get up the hill' - The new place is at the top of theĀ hill on East Front!We'd like to thank everyone for their support throughout the past few months. Drew's will be relocating to 25 Church St. in Keyport - 2 blocks from our previous location. We hope to see you in February! Here's a picture of our new location. We will be located in the 2 store fronts on the right!

              I believe that's the 3rd move for Drew's restaurant within Keyport. We're glad he was able to stay in Keyport; he elevates the tiny town's dining scene. The "new" location has gone through many hands. I believe it was originally a furniture store.

                that's a big thumbs up - glad to hear that info.
