East Hampton Restaurants 2009?
Although I have been going out there all my life, I cannot keep up with what is truly good out around East Hampton, versus just trendy. Used to go to Gordons with my parents. It is gone. The Laundry used to be a good standby, now it has moved and gets bad reviews. Everyone seems to like Sam's for pizza, which I do not understand (we like Conco D'Oro in Sag Harbor). Gosman's topsider was AWFUL, Duryeas is always crowded. Can't even get in to Nick & Toni's since I am not famous. So, what's a person to do -- having houseguests and don't want to cook every meal or eat pizza. Any suggestions?
Il Cappucino in Sag Harbor.
Cafe Max in East Hampton.
Fishbar or Inlet in Montauk.
Indian Wells Tavern in Amagansett.
I agree with you on Sam's pizza & I also like Conca D'Oro in Sag Harbor. Have you tried Nichol's in East Hampton?
Second House Tavern in Montauk served a wonderful meal on Sunday night to our trio of work colleagues... clam chowder, tuna tartare, tomato/watermelon salad, seared scallops, fries with brie, a couple of stand out cocktails, and key lime pie that I'd go back for in a minute (brought our host a slice to go). I don't get out this way often, but would go back for Second House Tavern.
Went to Bostwicks last night. Salads were excellent. Nicely dressed, fresh and good portions. The Halibut with Potato Crust was overcooked. I dont understand how a fish place overcooks fish. Would you go to a steak restaurant and order med rare get med well and feel good about your meal. Good seatings, nice sunset. I'm sorry to give it a B.
since I was looking forward to what some other hounds said about it.
My three favs
Sag Harbor = Il Cappucino (out of this world garlic rolls, try not to fill up!)
Bridghampton = World Pie (fab brick oven pizzas and the salads are fantastic)
Napeague/Amaganset = Clam Bar (yes they have fresh whole belly fried clams and they are pretty damn good, and cheaper than over-rated over-priced LUNCH)
