The Cyril’s Property Is in Contract; New Restaurant Planned for Site


Cyril’s, the longtime notorious bar/restaurant on the Napeague stretch, closed permanently a year ago after many disputes with East Hampton Town. Cyril Fitzsimmons, the restaurant owner, closed the place down and the owners of the land and building, from whom Cyril leased the property, put it up for sale. Asking price for the 0.57-acre plot along with the building was $1.495 million; it was listed with commercial specialist Lee Minetree at Saunders. And now the property is in contract.

Details so far as sketchy, as agent Lee Minetree doesn’t want to give specifics yet, but Lee did confirm to Behind the Hedges that a new restaurant is planned for the site. The listing notes, “Site plan approval is in place for a 62-seat bar/restaurant with a total capacity of 150 and expanded parking.” BBCs for all? (The Banana Bailey’s Colada was Cyril’s signature drink.)
