East Hampton and/or surrounding areas for lunch and dinner

Hi! I have never been to the Hamptons, but I will be there sometime in the next week or so for a few days. Since I am clueless on the restaurants there, can you please suggest some places. Money is not important. I prefer ideally French, but I know that is probably hard to come by. I just love lobster!!

Thanks for any help! Or any other suggestions!

    Breakfast - Amangansett Farmer's Market. Donuts in EH in the place they sell ice cream and donuts, just cannot remember name of it
    Lunch - Cyrils is great on route 27 3.5 miles east of downtown amagansett.
    Dinner - jfood's two favorites are Nick & Toni's and Laundry, both in EH.

      Unfortunately Farmers Market is not open this year, still in negotiations with town taking it over. The ice cream place in Easthampton is Scoop du Jour, it's on Newtown Lane, not Main St, where Dreesens used to be (they took over their famous donut machines)

      For French I like Le Chef on Jobs Lane in Southampton (I haven't been in awhile, but they've been there forever so I figure they're still around)

      I just had some lobster at Cyrils the other day and was underwhelmed. Good place for a couple of drinks though, try the BBC house special.

        Oh man Farmer's Market closed? crap, thought it survived.

        Dreesens and Scoop du Jour. That's the ticket around the corner from the movie theatre.

        Thanks coll

          I'm pretty sure the Market will be open next year, it was just lawyer stuff holding it up. The town will own it but it will be run the same as it used to be.

    2. I'm not sure how far it is from East Hampton, but Pierre's is quite nice for French, in Bridgehampton.

      1. Thank you all for your posts!! I feel like such a non-foodie because I have never been there!! (I HATE that feeling!)

        I certainly appreciate your help and suggestions!! :)

          A place I also like in Southhampton is Silvers - excellent lobster roll, also one of the best BLTs I've ever had. Also, the seafood market is a great place to get a lobster roll to go.

            I just had a lobster roll at Lobster Roll in Amagansett/Napeague today and I take back all the bad things I've said about them. Also perfect were their fried calamari (I didn't order them myself but ate as many as I could sneak off the plate).

            1. re: coll

              And I meant to say the seafood market in Wainscott!

                Now I am serously jealous! I cannot fine one place here in NJ with a decent lobster roll! One of my favs is at Mary's Fish Camp in the village!

                1. re: Angelina

                  Try Duryea's Dock in Montauk for a great lobster roll with a view.

          2. Bostwicks - menu is seafood all the way. Rest. is on second floor deck overlooking Three Mile Harbor.
            For French there is Almond in Bridgehampton, which is west of EH. If your driving out on 27 you'll drive through Bridgehampton before you get to EH (unless your on the back roads).
            The American Hotel in Sag Harbor - French American.
            Nichol's in East Hampton had a good lobster special last week.
