Where to Celebrate Christmas Eve in the Hamptons
1. Plaza Café

2. Le Chef
Why not bistro food on Christmas Eve?
3. 75 Main

The East End's only real late night dining option (7-11 and Hess don't count) is business as usual on Christmas Eve. They'll be opening at 11:30 serving until midnight.
The regular menu will be available plus holiday specials.
The Bridgehampton eatery will be holding its 14th annual Christmas Eve dinner of roast suckling pig (with cabbage, caramelized apples and spaetzle) from 5pm to 9:30pm. If the $31 prix fixe doesn't do it for you, the rest of the menu will be available as well.
