Howard Lorber is stepping up from hot dogs to finer dining — think orange miso-glazed monkfish, or Long Island duckling with vanilla sweet potatoes.

The chairman of brokerage Prudential Douglas Elliman, who also serves in the same role for the hot dog chain Nathan’s Famous, is purchasing the fashionable  Southampton restaurant Savanna’s, which lists the above items on its contemporary American menu. Read the full story from the July 2008 issue after the jump.

  • Meadow Lane

    Finally we will have a fine dining alternative that is not owned by a fly by night with the sole intent playing it summer by summer and robbing the summer folks.

  • John

    No more prudential; genious

    • Ryan R

  • Tim
