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.

Where will you be headed this weekend? Bring Stonyfield® Organic YoKids® along for the journey! Their line of delicious, organic yogurts is ideal for car trips, pumpkin and apple picking adventures, the playground, hiking, and many more destinations. We have already begun enjoying YoKids® as a healthy after school snack. As the #1 organic kids yogurt brand, it came as no surprise when I found their entire selection of whole milk yogurt pouches sold out at my local grocery store. I was lucky to come back the next day to see their selection of pouches fully restocked. I also picked up their 6 pack of 4 oz yogurt cups and 2oz 8-pack of strawberry banana sque`ezers.
There is also exciting news for parents, children, and yogurt lovers of all ages! Stonyfield recently announced a sugar reduction across its yogurt portfolio. This reduction started with YoKids®, which features between 25% – 40% less sugar than the leading kids’ yogurt. Children already consume enough sugar (many of which is added and hidden in various foods). One of my goals as a parent is to make sure my daughter gets the proper amount of daily nutrition all while having fun and enjoying what she eats. This is so she has the opportunity to establish healthy eating habits early on and maintain them for life.
This past Saturday, October 21st, my family and I celebrated Oktoberfest at Ram’s Head Inn in Shelter Island. At the event that went from 1-5pm, there was live music from Points East, a Pig Roast, pumpkin painting, lawn games, local brews & ciders, and classic German fare. The buffet table included Bratwurst, butternut squash, corn salad, and chocolate chip cookies for dessert. The buffet was served from 1-3:30pm.
A raffle benefitting AmeriCares hurricane relief efforts for Puerto Rico was also featured with prizes from DoubleTree by Hilton Times Square West, Isola Restaurant, Lieb Cellars, EFL Kids, Dering Harbor Co Aerial prints, and more. The drawing took place at the end of the event.
