About

Ryan & Samy
Ryan & Samy

As the days until the North Fork Shack’s official grand opening near, we look back and reflect on the amazing journey “The Shack” has navigated. Our dream of providing fresh and local cuisine to the North Fork will have been made possible due to the continued help and backing of our families and close friends. This invaluable support can be found in every inch of “The Shack”....from the cement that has been laid on the floors, to the walls that stand tall. It is our intent to welcome each and every one of you "home" when you enter “The Shack”....so we turn to you, our family and friends, hoping that through your aid and generosity we can attain the extra “push” needed to open the doors.

The success of the new culinary experience that undoubtedly awaits the North Fork calls for donations raised with the goal of making your visit to "The Shack" even more impressive. Our financial objectives include funding some remaining equipment and building needs,along with acquiring the means to find, secure and train a great staff. In addition, we wish to put some finishing touches on a dining area that a few visitors have described as, “wow” and “you've got to be kidding me!” (their words not ours). We know that our hard work on the dining area speaks for itself, but the exterior is in need of more attention. With your assistance, we aim to make the outside décor just as "fantastic" as the inside. Finally, although we don’t like to brag, we think The North Fork Shack is going to be an amazing new addition to the culinary scene that already exists on the North Fork and our mission is to get the word out. The ability to gain exposure is obtained through marketing, therefore contributions will also be applied toward physical and digital advertising in order to achieve this purpose....but don’t worry, there will always be an open seat for family and friends!

ABOUT US

".....we take our fun just as seriously as our food..."
".....we take our fun just as seriously as our food..."
 

We are Ryan Flatley and Samy Sabil, the proud owners of Creative Courses Catering (Est. 2010). If you’ve come out to the North Fork of Long Island you are sure to have seen us, especially if you dined at the North Fork Table and Inn, where we got our start. Back then, Ryan was working tirelessly as sous-chef in the kitchen and Samy was “front-of-the-house” and acquiring his certification to be a sommelier. Fast forward--> Our friendship quickly became a brotherhood and in a natural progression, led to a successful business partnership (I know…how did we get so lucky?). 

Samy was born and raised in Morocco but thanks to the wonderful friends and families he came to know from Mattituck out to Orient, he quickly learned what “country” life on the North Fork was all about. Likewise, while Ryan (born and bred Southolder) had Samy trying beef jerky, learning about American football and going to Zac Brown concerts, Samy introduced Ryan to lamb merguez and got him into soccer and Gnawa music….and that was just the beginning of how we came to share cultures, cuisines and above all, laughs. 

Always incorporate food and fun. From fishing, hunting, and skydiving to riding camels and quads in the desert, we take our fun just as seriously as our food…and as it turns out, our clearly distinct backgrounds have a solid core in common: care for community and strong sense of family. This is what we’ve always been about and we take pride in that it’s been the “keel” of our business. From Manhattan to Greenport… Miami to L.A…throughout our travels in Spain, France and Morocco… year after year we have been fortunate to taste and experience the beauty of food and its impact on its collective people. 

Above all, we especially appreciate the opportunity in allowing us to be a part of your table… continuing to do what we love, and you loving what we do! So since our years at “The Table”, a lot has changed and we’ve come a long way. Well… some things haven’t changed… Ryan still goes fishing (whenever he can get time off LOL). Hey, when you’ve been out on a boat since diapers, what do you expect? Good thing though because growing up by the water has not only influenced so much of how we approach life, but has contributed to the vision for our new undertaking: launching a small (primarily take-out) restaurant featuring fresh and local seafood. A place that manifests everything we stand for. A place that is li-te-ral-ly coming to fruition with the helping hands of the community. We are moved and inspired and ultimately want to share this exciting journey with you. Whether you’re on the way to a nearby beach or winery, or stopping in on the way home from work, with your support we know we can enhance the North Fork by providing a quality eatery at reasonable prices that embraces not only our passion and enthusiasm, but the spirit of all of us.

Join us in making The Shack a part of your North Fork tradition!
