Whit’s End has moved a few times over the past couple of years, and now they have a location on Beach 97th Street. They still make some of the best pizza you’ll find in the area, and if you don’t feel like pizza, they serve a burger and a lot of seafood - which is half the reason you come here. Get the steamed clams, and bring beer and sunscreen. It’s BYOB, and there isn’t much shade in their big backyard.
