Most people go to the beach for vacation. Not Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, the awesome guys behind Animal in L.A., who are also F&W Best New Chefs 2009. The pair will be fronting a pop-up restaurant at the Backyard, the dining room at the terrific Sole East hotel in Montauk, N.Y., from August 12-18 (reservations, 631-668-9739). Don't worry, they won't just be cooking: "We wanted a little fun and sun," says Shook, who, like Dotolo, is an avid surfer. Their plan: To serve some of Animal's greatest hits—melted petit basque cheese with chorizo and garlic bread; balsamic ribs with blistered corn and herb butter; bacon-chocolate crunch bars with salt-pepper custard sauce—as well as new dishes they're keeping secret. My plan: to eat there all seven nights.
