Long Island

New Paradise Cafe
126 Main Street
Sag Harbor, NY
Tel: 631-725-6080

The owner of Roberts in Water Mill, Long Island has purchased a small charming restaurant behind a bookstore in front. A $25 prix-fixe dinner is served from 5:30-6:30 Sunday to Thursday. The restaurant sits close to Sag Harbor Theater.

The maitre d and staff are skilled, pleasant and helpful. Appetizers range from $9 to $14. The vegetarian spring rolls were perfect and the least expensive on the menu. Roast fresh Long Island duckling with walnut wild rice, tiny French beans, and raspberries was as good as it gets for $26. The duck was without fat and its skin, crispy.

The wines were from local vineyards and $32 a bottle. Desserts varied from their famous dark chocolate sorbet to cakes, cookies and cheese cake.

This addition, north of the Hamptons, offers an excellent fare in a quiet setting which even has a porch for those who like to eat out of doors.

108 Montauk Highway
Wainscott, NY 11975
Tel: 631-537-6255

A Tudor house on the water in Wainscott has been the home of many restaurants. For the past few years, an Italian restaurant family from Brooklyn has moved in. It is a warm place with noisy dancing on Friday and Saturday nights.

The chef is outstanding serving as you sit a large plate of caponata. The appetizers are varied with mussels, shrimp, calamari or squid. The home-made pastas and risotto are varied and outstanding. The tomatoes and fresh mozzarella cant be beat. Meat or fish dishes are well prepared with perfectly cooked vegetables.

There is a small cover charge, and the wine list is large and moderately expensive. This restaurant is a fine addition to a meager number of very good food shops in the Hamptons.
