Sag Harbor recs?

I posted last week looking for your picks in East Hampton and Amagansett, but I should have also included Sag Harbor in my list of towns. What do you recommend there, and are your choices better/equal to the restaurants in EH and A? Not necessarily looking for fancy (though fancy is okay), but I'm trying to take advantage of having a couple of night out without my kids.

  1. I live in Sagaponack and love Sag Harbor! Good food with a view - The Beacon or The Dockside (Seafood). Fancy & accepts reservations- The American Hotel (French American). Super casual and inside, but with a view - LaSuperica (Mexican)

      I also like going to The American Hotel for lunch for a hamburger, and it doesn't feel so fancy then! For the OP - do check out the cheese store on the street behind the hotel - I always forget the name, but it's wonderful.

        Cavinola’s is the cheese store and they just opened a wine store right next door.

    2. Our favorite with children is Il Cappuccino. Lovely old world style restaurant with checkered tableclothes and wine bottles hanging from the ceiling. They have a kids menu too. The food is very good and fresh and they ususally have a number of specials. Reasonably priced concidering where you are. They only take reservations for parties of 5 or more.

          thanks. I'll remember that if i'm looking for a place on a night when i'm with my kids, but i'm more interested in places to go without them, since i'll have a sitter for a couple of nights.

            actually i go there with my wife without the kids quite often, il Cap.'s food is fantastic, just ask for a table away from "families" you wont go wrong trust me. The American Hotel is great too as is Spinnakers.

                I ate at Spinnaker's a while back and was not impressed. B Smith has the best view, but overpriced and not that good. Better to go there for a drink.
