Baron’s Cove, located in Sag Harbor with sweeping views of the Marina, is a place I have congregated with friends and family for many years. I come here year round for several reasons: superior service and professional staff members, sumptuous plates, crafty cocktails, decadent desserts, and the cozy fireplace in their lounge that evokes charming, old-world elements. During the autumn months, I love to visit this hotel and restaurant for some bar bites and a cocktail on a Friday or Saturday evening with my husband and family. We are treated with the utmost amount of genuine kindness, and with that we love to continue to create many happy memories here.
For this particular visit, we dined for Long Island Restaurant Week, which took place last week from October 29-November 5. Restaurant Week features a three-course prix fixe dinner for $28.95.
Coming from the west as you enter Southampton on Montauk Highway, Saaz Indian Cuisine is one of the first restaurant establishments to welcome you. Before I first dined here almost a year ago, I had heard nothing but rave reviews from the exceptional service to the authentic, delicious Indian/Pakistani dishes. If I could come to dine here once a week I would. The vibe is so relaxing and the food is worth every bit of praise. Sameer, the owner, was so warm and welcoming and in addition to his phenomenal staff, provided us with top notch service.
This visit was apart of my collaboration with Long Island Restaurant Week, which took place this past week from Sunday to Sunday, October 29th to November 5th. Saaz featured a five-course menu including salad, soup, appetizer, entree with bread and rice, and a dessert for $28.95.
On Sunday, I made my first visit to Centro Trattoria & Bar for Long Island Restaurant Week, which spans Sunday to Sunday, October 29-November 5 and includes a three-course prix fixe dinner for $28.95. Restaurant Week is held across Long Island at almost 200 restaurants. Centro is located just off W. Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays, within close proximity to Stop n’ Shop, Macy’s, and Planet Fitness. This friendly Italian restaurant is for everyone: families, couples, children, friends, and colleagues of all ages.
Upon arrival, Nina, our host, greeted and seated us. During our dining experience, never was there a moment where we felt hurried or were waiting for our drinks or meal. Our water glasses stayed filled too. The service is top notch and genuine, and we felt a very warm vibe right from the start that lasted throughout our stay. Katie, our waitress, was particularly exceptional. We enjoyed the atmosphere so much that we took our time and savored each dish for a total of almost three years. It is rare these days to find a restaurant that gives you the opportunity to do just that.
The Squeezery, located on Main Street in Amagansett, is everything one would wish for in a juice and smoothie bar: hip and friendly staff, laid-back atmosphere, live music, art, a cozy couch with a take one/leave one ‘library bookshelf, ‘boozy’ juices or ‘detox’ cocktails, local sourced produce, and so much more.
After visiting for the first time last week during the Hamptons International Film Festival, I instantly realized that this is a spot to frequent year round and tell all your friends and family about. If you have not been in yet, it is about time you checked it out! The owners are Sam Schoenheimer and James Huertas, two mates who hail from the United Kingdom and opened The Squeezery Memorial Day Weekend of this year.
Duryea’s Lobster Deck, set on Fort Pond Bay in Montauk and just a minute away from the train station, is a laid-back, family-friendly restaurant and market offering indoor and outdoor seating for lunch and dinner. What I love about Duryea’s is you could sit here for hours if you would like, taking in the breathtaking view and salty sea air. Service was above and beyond during this particular visit, water was provided consistently throughout our meal and we were checked on accordingly.
New this year is their exclusive private dining area and the oyster bar. The new private dining area is located just above the main lobster deck and accommodates 30 people for a sit-down event or more for a cocktail event. Sweeping views of Fort Pond Bay paired with incredible sunsets makes this a perfect spot for a summer dinner party. The new oyster bar at Duryea’s offers oysters, champagne and wine. The oyster bar, located just adjacent to the fish market at Duryea’s, offers Montauk Pearl, Orient Point, Blue Point and Kumamoto oysters by the dozen. You may pair your oysters with a selection of rosés, whites and reds as well as a few select champagnes.
