2 Palm Restaurant
Pio Bozzi and John Ganzi opened the first Palm Restaurant in New York City in 1926. Now this favorite steakhouse has outposts across the nation and in Mexico City. As one of The Hamptons hautest dining destinations, Palm Restaurant boasts an extensive steak menu, including the Bozzi “Prime” Steak Burger. Finish off your succulent steak with a slice of New York Style Cheesecake with raspberry sauce.
This trendy Japanese restaurant has been a mainstay in Sag Harbor since 1994. Serving slightly modernized dishes, Sen offers an extensive Sake menu and some inventive sushi rolls, such as the Torched Salmon Roll. Inside, amber lighting and rock-encrusted walls provide ambiance for the horseshoe-shaped sushi bar in the center of the restaurant. During the summer months, sushi lovers can even enjoy their food on the patio with a view of downtown Sag Harbor.
4 East by Northeast
East by Northeast serves some of The Hamptons freshest seafood and shellfish, as well as locally grown produce. Overlooking scenic Fort Pond, the restaurant also boasts one of the hautest views. Guests can choose to enjoy sunsets over Fort Pond in the main dining room, a glass of vino in the stone wine room, or a cocktail at the bar and lounge. With menu favorites like the Cilantro Lime Marinated Half Roasted Chicken and the Panko Seared Tuna and Braised Daikon, East by Northeast offers a dish for everyone.
