STONY BROOK, NY—DJ's Clam Shack was created by two seafood restauranteurs, one from Blue Point, Long Island in 2009. Now the chain of clam shacks is opening its third location on Long Island in Stony Brook.

Jeff Gagnon and Paul Riggio own the DJ's Clam Shacks in Wantagh and East Northport. They are taking over the former D.P. Dough space at 1007 Route 25A for the newest restaurant, which had a preview opening weekend in November. A grand opening is slated for Dec. 8.

The first DJ's Clam Shack opened in Key West, Florida, as a mixture of Southern and Northeastern seafood styles by Gagnon and Doug Bell. The Florida eatery was featured on the Food Network's show, "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives."

"The newly formed partnership was steeped in rich northeast seafood tradition, one partner hailing from Ipswich, Massachusetts the other from Blue Point, New York. Mix in over forty years of living, fishing and working the Florida keys, with its variety and incredible bounty of seafood, a recipe for success begins to emerge," the website for DJ's explains.

DJ's Clam Shack serves fried clams, steamed clams, lobster rolls, fish tacos and more.
