Great dining in the Hamptons

My DH has never really experienced the Hamptons and I haven't been in years, though I used to spend alot of time there in my 20s. We are going for 4 nights and I am looking for the current great spots. We will be staying in east hampton and we don't want to travel too far for dinners. Places in EH, Amagansett, Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor would be preferable. Looking for great food, great atmosphere-- dinner is our "night out." I am going to try to get res at Nick and Toni's, but can't do that for a few more weeks. Any thoughts? TIA!

  1. Add Laundry to your list.

    And when you go to N&T (another jfood favorite) make sure you immediately order the zucchini chips while you look at the menu, they're great. Would love to see if they have the return of the silliest amouse bouche this year.

    1. World Pie in Bridgehampton is a fav of mine

      1. I loved Harvest on Fort Pond in Montauk. Gorgeous waterside setting, relaxed yet polished vibe, fresh delicious locally caught Mediterranean food. The only caveat is they serve portions for 2 (hence the seemingly high prices), but the value factor accordingly is good. I had an awesome halibut special, and the shrimp/pancetta appetizer is delicious. It's not that much farther away than Amagansett.

          We love the Harvest in Montauk. Usually, we go with four to six people and eat family style. Their food is delicious and unpretentious. The problem is, sometimes it is impossible to get a reservation for the time that you want it since they are so busy.

            The policy when I called last week was to call the same day you wanted a reservation and leave a message, and they would call you back if they had availability. I left a message around 1PM and got the time I wanted (but I chose an early time on purpose to enhance my odds, 6 PM). Hope that helps!

        2. The Beacon in Sag Harbor is it if your looking for atmosphere. It's on a second story deck overlooking the Sag Harbor bridge and marina. They don't take reservations, but you can have a drink at the bar or there is a small sitting area outside where you can wait.

          1. Love Sen in Sag Harbor for sushi, but expect a reservations. We also really love Rowdy Hall right in town in East Hampton...a bit more casual, but the food is consistently delicious. Second Laundry, although haven't been to new location.
