Cuisine in the Hamptons is Akin to Its Landscape: Unique and Diverse, With a Little Something for Everyone. Here Are Three Culinary Experiences That Prove the Point
The Hamptons’ food scene is well-publicized. From elegant waterfront restaurants to laid-back burger joints to an array of spots to sip cocktails, you’re never too far from the perfect dining experience.
As good as it is, cuisine along the easternmost shores of Long Island does not solely revolve around a favorite dining room or beloved local dive. There are also uniquely distinct culinary experiences—those to satisfy the most cultured of palettes and those seeking a bit of fun as part of the menu. Here are three unparalleled culinary experiences to add to your social calendar.
1. - August 24 and 25
The Hamptons may earn its shimmer from the luxury estates and celebrity visitors that populate its quaint towns and villages, but its charm originates from its agricultural roots from centuries past. What better way to experience this traditional and unique heritage than through a country fair? Held just across the Peconic River from Southampton, the Hallockville Country Fair harkens back to less complicated times where art and craft entertained and simple, thoughtfully prepared meals ruled the day.
Sample the best of local Long Island food and beverage, but save plenty of room for that staple of country fairs past and present—homemade baked goods.
