Time to say “Tschüss” to Montauk’s Zum Schneider. The building is up for sale, and, says listing agent Dylan Eckardt of NestSeekers, there are big plans in store. He’s having interior renderings drawn up by Curious Yellow Design (who also did Tauk at Trails End) to give the new owners ideas. According to Dylan, four containers are on their way from Bali to redo the interior. The intended vibe is Almond-meets-the-Surf-Lodge and the targeted crowd is a bit older and more upscale than the Sloppy Tuna types, more like Moby’s. “People 27 to 45 who want a really nice dinner,” says Dylan.
Sounds like it could be very successful. After all, the building is one of the largest restaurants in Montauk and it’s right by the ocean. There are 102 seats inside and 40 outside, with 0.18 of an acre. The kitchen is spacious, with newer equipment, including a pizza oven, and the basement includes a walk-in fridge and six freezers. Upstairs is the office and staff quarters, which reportedly sleeps 4-7 in a snug 600 square feet, with one bath.
What’s the price? “We’re accepting offers and seeing what happens,” says Dylan.
