Blue Parrot

Given the quality of Mexican food in Manhattan, if I find a Mexican restaurant I like elsewhere, I’ll visit it over and over. That’s the case with Blue Parrot, which is tucked away behind Main Street in East Hampton. The menu features Mexican staples like ceviche, guacamole, mussels and empanadas and interesting large plates like […]

La Fondita-1

La Fondita

Stop here if you’re in the mood for traditional Mexican street food made from fresh local ingredients. The menu isn’t particularly inventive with the typical selection of tacos, burritos, tostadas, tortas and large plates, but the quality is outstanding. And that’s what matter, right? Plus, the fresh guacamole and array of homemade salsas make it […]

Meeting House

This is an Amagansett staple in a classic wooden building complete with a front porch. The menu consists of American comfort food like burgers, roasted half chicken, sandwiches and pastas.

Townline BBQ

It’s hard to resist the welcoming, wafting scent of BBQ, especially when sitting in slow-moving traffic on 27. Townline BBQ is an inexpensive, counter-service, wooden shack-esque place with great fried mac and cheese and cornbread. I’ve not had the ribs and brisket, but people I’ve dined with have liked both. Corner of Townline Road and […]

We love this tiny sushi restaurant for its fresh fare and inventive menu. While sushi staples form the base, entrees like shitake-crusted tofu, duck quesadillas and black bean burritos add an alluring twist. Since it’s always packed with a long wait to boot, it’s best to go during the week or have a back-up plan. […]

Nick Toni-1

Nick & Toni’s

Nick & Toni’s is one of our favorite go-to spots in East Hampton. The menu is comprised of simple and delicious dishes made with fresh local ingredients. The interior is designed to resemble a Tuscan farmhouse, though during the busy summer months you’ll never get a glimpse of the actual structure through the crowd. The […]

This is my favorite Hamptons breakfast spot. The food is delicious, with a focus on local, organic and seasonal, and you can sit outside for optimal people-watching. I always order the Jo Mama, a bounty of sweet and savory components (whole wheat pancake, French toast, one egg, fruit, oatmeal, oven roasted new potatoes). For healthful […]

Lion Gardiner, South End Burial Ground

South End Burial Ground

  Tombstones in this East Hampton cemetery rightfully occupy prime real estate smack in the middle of town. The earliest gravestones are from the 17th century and mostly identify the Hampton’s founding families like the Gardiners. The plot used to be the churchyard for East Hampton’s first meeting house. I thought it appropriate to shoot […]
