Like everything else in the Hamptons, the roadside burger and lobster shack is getting an upgrade. Just down the road from the venerable Montauk Highway après-beach dives Clam Bar and Cyril's comes power hospitality publicist Steve Kasuba and restaurateur Alex Duff's new joint, Banzai Burger. The Hamptons regulars have hired James Beard Award nominee Alan Hughes and sushi chef Isao Yoshimura to create an eclectic fusion menu that includes Mako shark burgers, sushi, and corn crab cakes. The whitewashed indoor-outdoor spot has banquettes in the back for after-hours revelry (it is the Hamptons, after all), but how will the well-heeled fashionistas interpret the shoes-optional dress code? 2095 Montauk Hwy., Amagansett; 631-267-3175;
