The Springs Tavern opened their doors in East Hampton this spring and has already drawn in excellent reviews. As soon as we stepped inside, we were greeted by genuine, upbeat waitstaff who went above and beyond to accommodate us and made our dining experience comfortable and enjoyable. The seating area is very open and airy, and the oak bar is a spacious spot to sit and watch sports. High-top tables are just in front of the bar for additional seating space. Just around the bar, you will discover a dart board, which gets very popular during the late evenings. We were able to play a few rounds during our dinner.
We recognized several people we knew from Springs. They expressed how much they enjoy coming here and how it is so close to home. “The hours are very reliable, we always know we can count on Springs Tavern for a late night dinner. We are easily able to walk here, it’s so fantastic!” says a customer. There is live entertainment on select nights and Country Night is every Tuesday beginning at 8pm. On this night, guests may participate in a complimentary line dancing class at 8pm, and the Spaghetti Westerners will play live music at 9pm. A light bar menu is available for guests and includes: $4 Jack Daniels shots, $4 Sweet Action Beers, $5 hot dogs, pizza slices and more.
LT Burger is a must-visit for families and people of all ages. Serving up incredible burgers, sandwiches, milkshakes and more all day long, this friendly neighborhood spot offers indoor and outdoor seating including a spacious dining area, bar and cozy corner booth-style tables. The restaurant is owned and operated by Chef Laurent Tourondel, a native of France who has worked under such notable chefs as: Bruno Tison at Restaurant Beau Geste in Manhattan, Jacques Maximin at Restaurant Ledoyen in France, and Chef de Partie at Restaurant Mercury at the Hotel InterContinental in Moscow. He now also owns several award-winning restaurants in New York, Miami, San Juan, Hong Kong, and one in Kazakhstan, and has authored three cookbooks including New American Cooking and Fresh from the Market.
We visited LT Burger, located in the Village of Sag Harbor, on an early Tuesday evening. My family and I have been coming to dine here since the restaurant opened in 2010 and have always been pleased with the consistently friendly and attentive service, as well as their unbeatable milkshakes and burgers that are far too good to split.

Located at At Knowhere (aka Breakers MTK) at 769 Old Montauk Highway, Seamore’s opened their flagship outpost in Montauk in early July. A stunning ocean view just across the highway awaits visitors to this hip, laid-back dining spot. The dining room is on the upstairs deck and offers outdoor and indoor seating. We chose to sit inside as we preferred a quieter dining experience. It was already getting busy at just before 6pm on a Wednesday with most guests choosing to sit on the deck. There’s also a covered bar below the restaurant overlooking the pool. On the opposite side of the property, there is a spacious lawn for playing outdoor games and for a piece of relaxation.
To drink, my husband had the Montauk ‘Wave Chaser’ on draft ($10) and I had the Cucumber Mint Fresca ($6). The also have a Watermelon Aguas Frescas. I loved that the Fresca was not sweetened and was very thirst quenching. A wedge of lime added the perfect citrus touch. There’s also a curated cocktail menu and wine list.
It is such an honor to once again visit the Montauk Yacht Club, located in the heart of Montauk. If you have not visited or have dined at their restaurant, The Coast Kitchen, now is the time to do so. The resort is a private oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Long Island’s easternmost town. The restaurant has created several new changes, including an expansion and revamp of its menu with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients and local catches.
The new Coast Kitchen headed by new Executive Chef Richard Hebson. Hebson, most recently of the First and South in Greenport, is a veteran country club chef and a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. Chef Hebson is one of the most versatile and talented chefs on the East End. Every dish he creates is exceptional and five star worthy! His menu features several items from the land and sea, including Lobster Corn Chowder, Tuna Poke, Jumbo Lump Crab & Avocado, Filet Mignon, and Cocoa Cured Short Ribs.
Located in Montauk just minutes from Gosman’s Dock, Swallow East is a hip, chic eatery that is the true heart and soul of out east. Open for lunch and dinner seven days, Swallow East serves up extraordinarily memorable and flavorful fare. I don’t want to spoil it just yet but I had one of the best plates ever at this seaside spot. I encourage every single one of my readers to come in and dine, sip one of their summery cocktails, and listen to the incredible lineup of live bands scheduled for the season. As soon as my husband, daughter and I stepped inside, it instantly became apparent as to why Swallow East is so positively spoken of. Ever since Swallow East open their doors in 2012, dozens of colleagues, neighbors, and friends, have highly recommended this one-of-a-kind restaurant.
It would be difficult for me to think of more than a handful of restaurants that deserve the amount of praise Swallow East has received. The staff is warm, gracious and treats you like part of the family the second you arrive. Their smiles are genuine and they each took the time to make sure that we were comfortable and settled upon arrival. We sat in one of their spacious rooms adjacent to the dock. I strolled along outside with Sarah for a few minutes while our drink order was placed. The salty sea air was so refreshing yet calming. To drink, I had the Nitro Cold Brew Coffee: Sail Away Cold Brew on Tap ($6) and my husband had the Greenport Summer Ale on tap. I have been a fan of Sail Away for a couple of years and could not resist ordering my favorite cold brew coffee.
