Restaurants in The Hamptons

Despite the area’s ritzy reputation, it is still home to fishermen who make a living off the ocean and farmers who tend to local farms, and the Hamptons restaurants take full advantage of this local harvest. You can expect delicious platters of fried oysters or steamer clams at casual seaside spots, like Bostwick’s Chowder House, which is located right on the water and provides gorgeous sunset views while you enjoy dinner. The best restaurants in the Hamptons also take advantage of the local harvests, turning them into upscale twists on classic.

For the last quarter century, one of the most popular restaurants in the Hamptons has been Nick and Toni’s. The East Hampton spot draws in celebrities and locals alike with its locally sourced food and creative plates of Mediterranean and Italian cuisines. Be sure to snag a reservation in advance if you want to eat at this Hamptons restaurant.
