108 Wainscott Stone Rd., Wainscott
Il Mulino has grown over the years from its original Greenwich Village location (which opened in 1981) to a mini culinary empire, with outposts in Miami and Las Vegas, five New York City spots, and, as of this summer, Wainscott. Regulars will recognize the menu’s familiar favorites—cacio e pepe risotto, garlicky linguine di mare, reliably great chicken parmigiano, and grilled branzino. The building—which has seen a few restaurants come and go—has been totally renovated, and the dining room now has a fresh whitewashed look a stone’s throw from Georgica Pond. Come hungry.
Wainscott Village Shopping Center, 354 Montauk Hwy., Wainscott
There's a fierce debate about which of the famed, fist-sized cookies at Levain is their best, but since each one is gooey and served warm, arguing about it seems besides the point. While they also have two locations in the city, the Wainscott store is right along Montauk Highway, making it the perfect spot to pick up a dozen as a housewarming gift on your way into town or a snack for the car on the way home.
