Roses may be red and violets may be blue, but February isn’t just for couples—it’s for singles, too! Whether you’re looking for a good night out or a good mate, these Hamptons restaurants are the perfect destination for anyone who is single and loving it or single and ready to mingle.
If you’re looking for a restaurant where you can see and be seen, then get your single-self to Almond. As the go-to spot for celebrities, tourists, locals and fellow restaurateurs alike, the patrons at Almond come from all different walks of life, making every night here electric and entertaining. Whether you just want to enjoy items off of their raw bar menu or are looking to indulge in one of their French bistro-type entrées, you can’t go wrong. Whatever you choose to eat, a glass of anything off of the extensive wine list at Almond will be the perfect partner for the night.
Looking to take a break from the “usual” East End scene? Then Fresno is the place for you. Upon entering, Fresno’s relaxed vibe and layered textures will immediately transport you out of the Hamptons and into a setting that will make you feel like you’re in France, Tuscany or California. Unlike most East Hampton restaurants that are right on Main Street, making you feel front and center (not that there’s anything wrong with that!), this restaurant is tucked away, located just a few blocks away from the hustle and bustle of the Hamptons. While you’re here, enjoy a menu featuring American cuisines that have a refreshingly contemporary twist and sip on cocktails that strike the perfect balance of traditional and modern. In fact, the cocktails here are so different they can even serve as the perfect conversation starter.
For a more laidback atmosphere, the Quiet Clam 2.0 is the perfect choice. With great happy hour deals everyday from 4PM-7PM (currently closed on Wednesdays), sit back, relax and be happy in this charming bar and restaurant. Not comfortable with eating or drinking on your own? Not to worry, the TVs at the Quiet Clam will distract you—it may even give you something to talk about with the person sitting next to you. Plus, you will find friendly patrons at the bar all evening. The restaurant will also be offering 1/2 off bottles of wine.
At Cowfish, you can always count on there being a lot going on. From a great happy hour to live music, Wine Down Wednesdays and wine and food pairing events, you won’t need the company of anyone but you, yourself and I. Open year-round, enjoy your dinner and drinks while also enjoying panoramic water views (and staying warm!); but get excited for the warmer months when you can enjoy all of the above outside on their beautiful dock.
