The Best Restaurants in the Hamptons

Our guide to the top spots to eat on the East End

Bay Kitchen and Bar
399 Gann Road
The vistas from this Three Mile Harbor marina seafood boite are unobstructed and offer breathtaking sunsets. But that’s not the only appealing aspect of Chef Eric Miller’s sea-to-table restaurant. When you’ve had enough surf, the turf is just as enticing thanks to Miller’s hickory roaster for local ducks and chickens.

Long Wharf, Bay Street, Sag Harbor
Harlow, the restaurant that opened in 2013 in midtown Manhattan, debuted a bayside branch this summe in the charming hamlet of Sag Harbor. The large space will have a nautical feel with funky art and will use the bounty of the Hamptons and the North Fork—from local farmers, fisherman and vineyards—in its cuisine. With a prime location on the water in Sag Harbor, serving seafood is a natural fit. The menu will include branzino with wasabi gremolata and hearts of palm, salmon with chipotle corn, grilled shrimp tartines and extensive seafood offerings from Island Creek and Gosman’s.

Pepalajefa’s Gourmet on the Go
7 Main Street, Sag Harbor
Livia Hegner’s takeout boite Pepalajefa offers super-fresh dishes like gazpacho, seafood lasagna and indulgent gelatos and sorbets.

Nick & Toni’s
136 North Main Street, East Hampton
East Hampton mainstay Nick & Toni’s (a favorite of Alec Baldwin, Steven Spielberg and Sarah Jessica Parker) got a facelift in 2013 and now boasts a modernized dining area and bar. It’s the perfect spot to grab a pizza or indulge in their delicious roast chicken.
