A chic new Montauk restaurant-nightclub burned to the ground a day before its planned Memorial Day weekend opening, and investigators are probing what sparked the fire, authorities said Friday.
Maison Close Montauk — a French-inspired hotspot with a fashionable flagship venue in SoHo — was destroyed by a blaze Thursday night, a spokesman for the venue told The Post.
“We are sorry to announce that last night a fire claimed Maison Close Montauk last night,” the rep said Friday.
“The team is thankful that no one was hurt and for the assistance and bravery of the Montauk Fire Department. They are cooper ating with authorities as they investigate the matter, and we do not have further updates at this time.”
The waterfront East Hampton Town venue had planned to open for the holiday weekend with “a new al fresco atmosphere” while “blending the most iconic aspects of New York and French culture,” according to a press release.
Maison Close Montauk had planned to boast “French cuisine, elevated beverages, and a celebratory atmosphere,” according to its website.
An Instagram page for the venue shows colorful craft cocktails in a stylish white tablecloth setting.
The fire comes after East Hampton police threatened to shut restaurants that clear the floor for patrons to dance as the summer season starts, irking many bars and restaurants.
The East Hampton Town fire marshal’s office confirmed the blaze on East Lake Drive to Patch.com but provided no additional information Friday morning.
Fire Chief David Browne didn’t immediately return The Post’s calls Friday afternoon.
