The 10 Best Restaurants In The Hamptons

Plaza CafeEvery new summer brings  fresh stores, clubs, and restaurants to the Hamptons — but some things never change on the Long Island shore.

Zagat has ranked the top restaurants in the Hamptons for this year, and unsurprisingly all of the old faithfuls are still there.

All 10 scored over 26 in the food category of the survey’s 30-point scale, which according to Zagat means the meal was considered “extraordinary to perfection.”

From North Fork Table to the Plaza Café, here are the places you’ll need to book a table in advance this summer.

Service: 22
Cost: $53

Located (where else?) on Fort Pond, this Tuscan restaurant has its own herb, vegetable, and flower garden.
