Townline BBQ, an authentic, roadhouse, barbeque joint, opened in
Sagaponack, N.Y., in July 2007. The restaurant is owned by Honest
Management, Inc., which operates several dining spots in the area,
including Nick and Tony's in East Hampton. CCS Architecture crafted
Townline's ultra-casual design, which relates to the classic BBQ joints
found in the South. The intent was to create a functional, modern "dive"
for on-site dining and take-out.
Occupying the old Allison's at the Beach location in Sagaponack, the
renovated building is now enclosed with reclaimed barn wood siding and a
corrugated, galvanized metal roof. A new fireplace with a tall chimney
and large steel letters reading BBQ anchor the structure and create a
new identity from the road.
Inside, patrons order and pick-up food at the counter. Built-in seating
is made from shop-grade plywood with exposed fasteners and steel. Custom
tables, including the large community table and benches, are a mix of
galvanized metal, linoleum, and wood. A sink in the dining room gives
easy access for hand-washing. The small bar is separate from the dining
area, with its own tables and a fireplace. Exposed, bare Edison lamps
and galvanized fixtures illuminate the restaurant. The bar and order
counter are faced with black slate.
The primary cooking vessel, a large wood-fired meat smoker from Texas
called "The Oiler," is positioned in the open kitchen to be seen. A deck
with picnic tables for summer use is at the south side of the site with
views of the farmland to the south. With 2,000 square feet, Townline has
seating for about 75.
