About 18 Bay Restaurant
Chef Owned & Operated
18 Bay Restaurant is owned and operated by Chefs Elizabeth Ronzetti and Adam Kopels. We serve a four course Italian inspired Chefs menu that is a direct reflection of the local markets. Dinner begins with four different antipasti, followed by a handmade pasta, a choice of entree and dessert. The menu changes every week. We make handcrafted cocktails using organic syrups, serve local wine including two on tap, as well as international wines from small producers. We offer a vegetarian menu and accommodate for any allergies or aversions. We look forward to sharing with you our interpretation of the best of our terroir.
Originally built in 1893 by Marcus Duval, a decorated Civil War hero whose family had been on Shelter Island for generations, the history of the building connects us to the deep roots of Shelter Island. Originally named for its operators, Duval and Payne's was the original Post Office and General store for the community, where residents came for everything from lamp oil to ice and even fresh meat from the butchery. The building has gone through many renovations since, but maintains the beautiful original glass windows and distinctive charm that add to the experience of dining at 18 Bay.
