One of my absolute favorite places to eat in the Hamptons.
We've been going here for years and always enjoy it. After a long day at the beach I can't ever come up with better option of where to eat. It hits the spot every time. It's casual, friendly and good! Everytime we go, we are always greeted with a friendly hello and small talk from behind the window. The casual outdoor seating is perfect for your wind blown hair, sand-clad feet and recently sun-kissed skin. It's a no judgement kind of place. Plus, they've updated their outdoors a bit with newer and more picnic tables.
The food is always excellent. I always get the fish and chips...not because my palate is boring or because that's the only thing that is good...but because it's by far THE BEST! And I don't mess with a good thing. I always get the fish and chips with sweet potatoe fries and it's post-beach perfection everytime. My husband on the other hand changes his order everytime. Sometimes it's fried clams (excellent!), sometimes it's softshell crab, other times is the chowder...etc. Whatever he gets he's always happy with it and by my small samplings of his...I agree. BUT he always agrees with me that the fish and chips are the best out there. Seriously, you have to try it!
Great food. Great beer. Great Service....what more can you ask for?!!
I may be biased because I'm lucky enough to get Southampton beer by my home so it's a favorite of mine for sure. Which leads me to say,...when we saw there was a publik house attached to the brewery we were in heaven.
We decided to go for dinner with friends and we were all very pleased with our meal, beer and service while dining. The server was great and knowledgable about the beer and selection. We did the beer sampler and she was able to go through the whole flight explaining each one and what you can expect to taste...etc. The price was right too, ...affordable eating and drinking. The casual setting and being able to sit outside on the porch added to the ambiance and we were able to enjoy a really pleasant summer evening.
Ok, now I have to stray a little to boast about the beer. Southampton Double White is one of the best beers ever created. For that reason alone you should go...but wait, there's more. Their other staple and seasonal beers are fantastic! If you are a microbrew fan, you have to try Southampton (look for it in your beverage stores too). You will not regret it.
Also- we were able to redeem a restaurant.com certificate here which is a huge perk.
After several recommendations for Bartaco (Portchester & Stamford), we decided to go for my birthday outing with a bunch of friends on a summer Saturday night.
Now I will say this, if you go on busy summer Saturday, you are going to wait. But it was WORTH it! We knew that in advance and we showed up with a group of 9 so that is only to be expected. Once we were seated, outside on the patio on the comfy bench style seating, we were treated just as well as I'm sure everyone before us was. We weren't rushed or expected to know what to order. In fact, our waitress Tenille, was awesome. She immediately adapted to our table, explained and recommended things off the menu depending on what we said we were in the mood for. I can't say enough about how great and accommodating she was. One of my best waitress experiences.
The restaurant vibe, is Cali-hipster, nautical casualness with Mexican flavor undertones. It's a seemingly prosperous crowd of young professionals looking for an easy and relaxing place to meet friends and socialize. This place also reminded of so many of the restaurants found in the Hamptons.
The food was great! We thoroughly enjoyed every bit of our food. The atmosphere vibe described above is definitely translated into their food too. It's easy eating options with sophisticated flavors. Very affordable as well.
I highly recommend checking Bartaco out!
I wish I could give World Sushi double the amount of stars allowed. This place is a great sushi restaurant not just for Rockland County but in general.
It's casual and low-key but the quality is 5 stars! I eat here often and that's because I can't get enough. The lunch specials are affordable and delicious. Since i work close by, I've convinced almost all my sushi-eating co workers to also try it only to become instant fans. Dinner is just as good. Try the sushi pizza as an appetizer... You won't be disappointed.
The sushi is affordable, fresh and consistent. I've also found that there are two different types of Sushi restaurants; there's those that serve your standard spicy tuna, dragon and Philadelphia rolls. And then there are those places that serve sushi creations. World Sushi is the latter. Such as the Donkey Kong roll which incorporates a fried banana artfully displayed on top giving your salmon roll a kick. The Samba roll which has mango in it. And then there's the Moscow roll... One of the pricier rolls on the menu at $12 but worth every penny. It's one of those rolls that as soon as you bite it, your eyes widen. It's literally a mouth full! I could go on and on but what good will that do. Go try it!!!!!
I also have to note how great the service is. This is the kind of place, owned by a husband and wife duo (Chris & Nicole), that you are greeted with a friendly smile, waited on and remembered. They'll remember your name and your order!
You have nothing to loose and only a belly full of awesome sushi to gain! Enjoy!
LOVE it here!
We've visited before during a busy Friday night and were treated just as well then as we were today when we were practically the only ones there. One of the perks is that we were able to do our tasting on the back patio over looking the vineyard. We were able to sit, relax, chat and taste the full pour of wine at our own speed. The staff, a very knowledgable girl in her 20's who made small talk, explained the wine prior to pouring, smiled and asked how were were enjoying the wine. She adequately spaced each new tasting well enough that it gave us time to really enjoy the ambiance while sipping casually. The server was great. The wine was exceptional and the actual vineyards are a feast for your eyes. Classic Hamptons.
My husband and I visited Channing Daughters Winery today and although our hopes were high upon walking in, sadly, it ended up being a disappointment.
The positives: the vineyards, grounds and tasting room are beautiful. Their "Clones" chardonnay was excellent. It is a blend of 10 chardonnays. Very good.
The negative: the service. We were barely greeted by a tall red headed girl (don't know her name because she barely talked therefore never introduced herself). She looked miserable to be alive let alone pour wine. She starred at us while we tasted unconcerned with whether or not we enjoyed the spirit. When we asked what are some of the characteristics of the Pinot Bianco grape/wine she shockingly said and I quote "I'm not really familiar with the characteristics of this grape." REALLY?!!! It's one of the 6 options on the tasting menu, you pour this bottle maybe a hundred times a day and oh, wait...YOU WORK AT A WINERY?! Furthermore, we were surprised by her lack of embarrassment for not knowing about the wine she was serving. She could care less. It was like we should of been embarrassed for asking the question.
As a side note, there's this little gem called google...which while we're on the subject here's the description I found of the specific wine we were inquiring about on their own website. "This bone dry, aromatic white wine is a true field blend comprised of 60% Muscat, 30% Pinot Grigio and 10% Pinot Bianco all grown together, harvested together and fermented together.
....Our Sylvanus is juicy, tangy and alive with a long gratifying almost spicy and saline finish. This is the perfect aperitif wine and also pairs with stuffed squash blossoms, fresh cheeses, oysters and clams on the half shell, light salads, or charcuterie. " That seemed easy enough and one of the main reasons why people are being replaced by computers.
Anyhow, after visiting and tasting at Wolffer Estates and Duck Walk (all within 5 min of each other) you can clearly see the difference in service and quality of wines. The other vineyards were way more enjoyable.
The location and atmosphere are great. You can't be any more in a marina than this restaurant is. Also, the fact that you can get sushi at a Marina is a perk too (not sure why that isn't more common?). Other than than that...the food was just ok. The overpriced fish & chips was dry, the spicy tuna roll was like more like tuna fish and the "homemade" fries were lackluster needing to spend another minute in the deep fryer. My husband had the soft shell crab and was pleased with it but not blown away. The service was disappointing- another yelp-er explained it perfectly by saying "...the waitresses could sub in for Aunt Selma or Patty on the Simpsons." True story.
