        I like Pierre's in Bridgehampton for lunch - have not been for dinner.

          I second Turtle Crossing, although they're closed until spring.
          For casual, I like Gators in Hampton Bays and Buckleys in Hampton Bays or Southampton, and World Pie in Bridgehampton.
          I'm hearing alot of good things about FOOD in Hampton Bays, it's next on my list to try.
          Tuscan House is in Southampton now, great Italian. Like you're actually in Italy.
          Lori's (formerly 75 Main) had Michael Meehan as chef last I heard, so has to be good.
          We love Saracen in Wainscott, wonderful food and the nicest staff.
          A lot of places are closing, for the winter or at least for part of the week, so call before you go.

                I second Jedediah Hawkins Inn - didn't mention b/c it is on the North Fork - but absolutely worth the trip.

                East Hampton favorite is Nick and Toni's. Removed from my list is Dela Famina. Manager getting WAAAAAAAY too self-resto-important and views people that are not on the A-List as Z-listers.

                Further out in Amagansett is Pacific East next to the Farmer's Market, fantastic.

                    I am interested in hearing about what was terrible at Star Boggs. I usually have a great meal there. (usually get the tuna tartare, nut crusted flounder with bananna and buerre blanc sauce and their fabulous iced cappuccino).

                    we have been a few times when the meats, such as short ribs, duck etc. tasted "freezer burnt", but the fish dishes are always a hit....especially the prefixe on Sundays. What a deal.

                    Have you tried F.O.O.D in hampton bays? It's fabulous!!! Not sure if they have closed for the season yet.

                    There are two great restaurants I ate at recently in greater Hamptons area:
                    Annona in Westhampton Beach and Chachama Grill in Patchogue. The atmosphere,staff, food and service at Annona was the best I had in years. Menu and food excellent. Amazing place with the cars in the showroom. Happened to have eaten there on Friday and they had great live music at the bar. Seems to be a very happening place. My wife has invited friends to go eat next Friday so we can all enjoy.
                    Chachama Grill is located in East Patchogue. If somebody had not told us where it was we would have never have looked to eat there. What a great meal. Food is really good. Chef comes out and visits. A very pleasant surprise. We'll be back.

                      Actually, the "something" Maid in Hampton Bays has a Great Breakfast, I wish I remembered the full name, does anyone???

                        The Hampton Maid, they do have the best breakfast in the area (although Pancake Cottage makes a lot of home made style items too, don't think of it as a chain place, they just kept the name). Hampton Maid is the best place to stay too, although a little pricy.http://www.hamptonmaid.com/
                        PS they ONLY serve breakfast.

                        Baby Moon is AMAZING. Their fish courses are excellent, and they offer alot of low calorie dining that is still extremely savory in taste.

                          My favorites are


                          1770 House--East Hampton
                          Daves Grill--Montalk (More casual atmosphere but upscale prices...but worth it)

                          Il Cappucino--Sag Harbor (and relatively reasonable too)
                          World Pie--Bridgehampton
                          Rowdy Hall-- East Hampton

                            There is a plain ol' Luncheonette in Hampton Bays that is a step back in time. Been there forever, and the food is great.

                            In Wainscott, I love Breadzilla. They have great baked goods, bagels, and lunch menu changes every day.
