New York Restaurants
66 Newtown Ln., East Hampton
In the Hamptons, lunch is a verb, and nowhere embodies this more than Babette's. Located on bustling Newtown Lane in Easthampton, the menu is a clean one, filled with all-organic meats; wild, local fish; and lots of gluten- and grain-free options.
30 Main St., Southampton
Breakfast at Sant Ambroeus on Saturday mornings is, for many Upper East Siders and West Villagers, a standing order. When those same crowds descend on the Hamptons for the summer, not much changes.
Showfish at Gurney’s
32 Star Island Rd., Montauk
Make a reservation at Showfish for a celebratory meal, an engagement, a birthday…any excuse to be extravagant and order the showstopping Fruits de Mer Showfish platter.
195 Main St., Amagansett
Rosie's is set to become a mandatory all-day spot in the Hamptons. And indeed, après a long, salty day on the sand and in the water, mussels in a cider broth, blistered chicken, and chilled rosé set us straight.
74A Montauk Hwy., Amagansett
Produce from their own nearby gardens, sangrias on tap, and an extensive margarita menu with bold flavors like prickly pear are on the menu.
Nick & Toni’s
136 N. Main St., East Hampton
Nick & Toni's is a Hamptons institution: the kind of place you go every Friday night for dinner, where you've devoured everything on the menu a million times and still aren't sick of it, where you know the other diners and are on smile-and-wave terms with the chef.
Blue Parrot Bar & Grill
33A Main St., East Hampton
The laid-back, slightly dive-y, kitschy-in-a-fun-way tiny cantina is terrific for a group looking to stay half the night drinking margaritas and getting through basket after basket of chips and addictive salsa plus plates of very tasty—and organic—chicken quesadillas and fresh-off-the-boat shrimp tacos.
529 Hudson St., West Village
Red Farm’s menu focuses on fresh greenmarket product, artfully prepared fish, and delicious dim sum (including less familiar creations like Katz’s pastrami egg roll). From the dim sum selection, the Pac Man shrimp dumplings are as delicious as they are Instagram-worthy and the duck spring rolls are not at all greasy and taste surprisingly refreshing. We’re more than willing to endure the substantial wait (no reservations here) for a bowl of the Lobster Long Life noodles and the veggie fried rice. They put together prix-fixe menus for large groups in private spaces at both this and the Upper West Side location.
372 Lafayette St., Noho
Honeybrains’ sibling founders believe that eating a combination of veggies, fruits, legumes, whole grains, and omega-3s is the best fuel for optimum brain wellness.
The Village Den
225 W. 12th St., Greenwich Village
Antoni Porowski’s latest venture sticks to the kitchen but trades Atlanta for Greenwich Village.
