Time for some Hamptons restaurant news! As always, if you have any news to share, hit us up. Now that the summer is over, it's time to take stock of the 2016 crop of eateries. Which did you like? Which did you hate? Which was delicious yet overpriced? Which did you mean to try but didn't or haven't yet?
One new place that seems to be a winner is the Service Station in East Hampton. We loved the cute decor and liked the unpretentious, yummy food. For the off-season, the eatery is running a promotion called Gimme Five, with $5 drinks, $5 wine, $5 beer, and $5 pizzas. Owner Michael Gluckman says he’s "keeping things fun this fall and winter."
Not new but always trying out new ideas is the beautiful Living Room restaurant at c/o the Maidstone. On September 15, at 7PM, wines from the Frank Family Vineyards in California will be served with complementary dishes. Four courses will include pumpkin-cheese ravioli with wild mushrooms and sage; red wine-poached salmon; seared Long Island duck breast, and dark chocolate truffles with berries. Cost is $135 plus tax and gratuity.
Love Swedish food? Hop on over to the Living Room on September 29, for a five-course Swedish tasting menu, at $95 per person plus tax and gratuity. (Incidentally, we’ve heard that the inn is for sale, but the owners don’t want to use a broker. Interesting.)
