Riis Park Beach Bazaar’s offseason oceanfront restaurant and bar, The Dropout, is celebrating its grand opening in Rockaway Park this weekend.

Headed by chef Julia Steinberg, The Dropout continues Riis Park Beach Bazaar’s tradition of offering up a fun and delicious beach getaway all year round.

The menu at The Dropout will change weekly, rotating seasonal offerings such as fresh carpaccio tartare, sautéed pork fat edamame, fried spicy chicken sandwich, heirloom tomato with garlic sauce, charred broccolini, whole fried porgy and much more. Through Steinberg’s work, she has developed a personal touch of service, style and farm-to-table consciousness, which will be reflected in the dining experience at The Dropout.

Riis Park Beach Bazaar will also be offering programming throughout the off-season, starting with their third annual Oktoberfest on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 and Oct. 7 and 8. Other activities in the works include karaoke, game nights, music from local and visiting artists, and a local holiday market.

The Dropout will be open on Wednesdays through Mondays from 5 to 10 p.m. Longer weekend hours and bar specials will be offered throughout the football season and brunch Service will be available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
