Hamptons goers are some of the luckiest around when it comes to dining options, and no experience is ever complete without diving your spoons and forks into a luscious, creamy, gooey, chocolatey, or whatever your heart desires, dessert plate. So let’s dive into something sweet this summer! Below I have curated five favorite desserts I have discovered so far this season that everyone must try (at least once).
Key Lime Pie, Navy Beach
No longer the best kept secret in Montauk as we could not keep this breathtaking dining spot a secret any longer. Navy Beach boasts the most stunning sunsets in Montauk and what better way than to pair the experience with a slice of creamy, cool key lime pie. I recommend their Maryland Jumbo Lump Crab Cake just before with a fizzy, refreshing Aperol Spritz.
Chocolate Fondue, Harbor Bistro
Chocolate Fondue is one of those rare treats that is always memorable, so why pass on the opportunity to enjoy this tasty indulgence while visiting the Hamptons? Dippings include fresh strawberries, blackberries, and super-moist pound cake. You may be tempted to not share this dreamy creation.
Chocolate Caramel Molten Cake, Lulu Kitchen & Bar
Lulu has quickly become a favorite choice for dining among locals and visitors to Sag Harbor. Just like their sister restaurants in Montauk: Duryea’s and Arbor, dessert is a must-do. Lulu’s Chocolate Caramel Molten Cake is a work of art on a plate: a marriage between gooey caramel and wickedly good chocolate cake with chocolate ‘dirt’ and salted caramel ice cream.
Lemon Curd with Fresh Berries and Toasted Quinoa, The Beacon
This is refreshing and just the right portion after feasting on their popular (and my favorite) Lobster Rigatoni. Topped with fresh berries and toasted quinoa, it is a celebration of creamy and crunchy textures with zesty, juicy flavors. You will instantly know you are in the Hamptons with just how fresh the berries taste: straight from the farm.
Dreamy Brownie Sundae, The Bell & Anchor
A Brownie Sundae that is truly “Off the Hook.” Paired with Dreamy Coffee Ice Cream and garnished with fresh mint, it is a perfect ending to a harbor side dinner feat. Bell & Anchor’s desserts are consistently delicious and they also offer seasonal dessert specials. On the go? Enjoy this cooling coffee and decadent, moist brownie pair at the bar with your favorite after dinner drink.
