Surf Lodge is no longer the only laid-back East End spot where fashionable New York City folks come to mingle and nosh. Newly opened Banzai Burger (fittingly co-owned by one of the scenesters credited with Surf Lodge’s popularity) serves up an all-day menu of affordable burgers, salads, sushi, sake, wines and beers (canned, bottled and draft). The sunny white-and-blue eatery seats 100 diners (indoors and out) and houses a ping-pong table, making it an ideal pre- or post-beach pit stop. While beer prices start at just $4 and there are plenty of filling $11 options on the menu, Banzai Burger’s relaxed atmosphere also harbors some classic high-brow Hamptons touches, including waitresses outfitted in Cynthia-Rowley-printed shift dresses and a fois gras burger served with truffle fries ($25). But even at its steep end, Banzai Burger manages to keep weekending New Yorkers full and entertained for less than the cost of a chicken salad at any of the overpriced neighboring spots (ahem, Babette's).
