Prohibition Port Jeff to open taco bar at East Beach’s old lifeguard building


Prohibition Port Jefferson will be dishing out tacos to East Beach Pavilion goers this summer. 

Lisa Harris, owner of Prohibition, confirmed to that she’s taking over the vacant concession space to create a casual taco bar called Prohibition East Beach

Harris said she hopes to open the taco stand at the resident-only beach on Memorial Day or shortly after. 

“Every time I drive to the beach and I’m sitting in my chair I always think ‘Why is that shack not a concession stand? It screams to be a concession stand,’” Harris said.

“It needed something and I’m just really thrilled to be the one to resurrect it.” 

Back in April, Harris said village officials put a call out to food and beverage providers to submit proposals for a snack concession stand at the East Beach lifeguard building located at Village Beach Road. 

Several businesses sent in proposals and after careful consideration, Harris’s plan was selected, she said.

There are around three or four picnic tables for sit-down dining and guests are welcome to take tacos back to their beach chairs. 

Nothing on the menu exceeds $10, Harris says, and she plans on offering a “homemade, authentic experience at a reasonable price,” with a colorful atmosphere. 

“I’m grateful to the village for the opportunity and their commitment to bringing more amenities to the residents through the revitalization of fun family traditions,” Harris said.
