The booming Hamptons housing market in New York’s Long Island means it’s already time to start mapping out summer dining plans. Last year, places were so packed that even former chief executive officers willing to shell out hundreds of dollars in tips weren’t guaranteed a seat. (Picking up the tab for an almost-finished table and then squatting there, however, proved a successful strategy.)
Last year’s heavy hitting places will still be impossible to get into. Duryea’s in Montauk will once again construct monstrous seafood platters and lobster rolls for all the tables on the deck. At Sí Sí, which will celebrate its second season at the EHP Resort and Marina, the Goop crowd will continue to pile in for bright Mediterranean dishes such as spicy surf-and-turf paella.
