With the the long Memorial Day weekend kicking off the summer season, things are getting busy in the Hamptons. With weekend getaways in mind, here's a roundup of all the foods news from Eater's sister site Curbed Hamptons this week.
BOBBY FLAY WIRE: Last weekend, Curbed Hamptons talked to celebrity food person Bobby Flay about grilling, horses (he's big on all things equine), and the Hamptons. On where he likes to eat out in the Hamptons, he says, "When I want lobster rolls and steamers, I go to Bostwick's. I live really close to there. Plus they have soft serve ice cream." He also says he will never open a Hamptons restaurant.
East Hampton: With the imminent demise of bowling alley, arcade, and bar East Hampton Bowl, there's going to be prime Main Street real estate opening up for development. What should go there? Maybe a Carvel, a hipster nightclub, or an overpriced restaurant? The possibilities are endless.
Taco Town: This season's new openings in the Hamptons have been heavy on taquerias and Mexican restaurants, which means it's time to decide who does it best. 18 reader-nominated restaurants are vying for the title, and the polls are still open.
Sag Harbor: Bay Burger in Sag Harbor bakes its own bread and buns, churns its own ice cream, and grinds its own hamburger meat. Sound good? Watch the video at this link for a coupon for a free burger.
Sagaponack: Townline BBQ is featuring summer happy hour specials, including $6 wines by the glass, $4 pints, and $15 pitchers for the beer of the day. Curbed Hamptons's hot cocktail tip: the Possum Ridge Paralyzer?Dutch's Spirits sugar wash moonshine, fresh lemon, local honey syrup, and Bittermen's Hellfire shrub.
