What was once a seasonal destination has now turned into a year-round home for many New Yorkers due to the ongoing issues of the pandemic. Because of this, for this coming year, many Hamptons destinations are keeping their doors open all year-round rather than just for the happening three months of summer. Four of these include the newly-opened, high-end Japanese eatery, Kissaki, which opened in NYC earlier this year and Water Mill this spring to much praise; the newly-opened Mediterranean restaurant, NAIA; Water Mill’s favorite Greek destination, Calissa; and of course, the Southampton mainstay, 75 Main.

While those like Calissa and 75 Main have made a name for themselves in the Hamptons among the local and visiting crowds and managed to stay open even past the summer months, the newcomers signal a change that the Hamptons may turn into a more permanent destination for many New York families migrating out of the city not only for summer, but also during the chilly winter months.

Kissaki has become famous for its high-end omakase offerings, brought by Executive Chef Mark Garcia. To ensure safe dining, they’ve employed social distancing measures such as two robots—their Maki Maker and Nigiri Maker—that are used for delivery and to take out orders. While dining at the restaurant, all tables are spread six feet apart and staff is required to wear PPE. Guests can enjoy covetable pieces of omakase with the highest quality fish and ingredients, such as uni, toro, wagyu and more. Reservations must be booked in advance via Tock here.

NAIA is another newcomer, translating to Sea Nymph in Greek, and located at Southampton’s iconic Capri Hotel. The dining experience takes on a European beach-chic setting, serving up mouth-watering Mediterranean plates, as well as craft cocktails with the option of bottomless brunch daily. While guests enjoy their food and drinks, they will sway to the live DJ Beats and classical violinist Bud Cahill on the weekends, transporting them to another world away.
