Dinner and an Artist

Nick and Toni’s restaurant in East Hampton has teamed up with the Golden Eagle Studio, a nearby neighbor on North Main Street, to initiate a series of dinners with featured artists who will discuss an art-related topic, give a demonstration, or teach an art class at the studio before joining the group for dinner at the restaurant. 

Called A Night Out With, the series will start on Wednesday with Paton Miller, a painter whose works have been exhibited worldwide. The art session begins at 5:30 p.m. and will be followed by a two-course dinner. Reservations are a must and can be made online at The cost is $75 per person, which includes tax and tip. 

Mr. Miller will be followed by a session with Dennis Leri, a sculptor, on Jan. 18, and with Dan Rizzie and Susan Lazarus-Reiman on Jan. 24. Sessions with other artists are scheduled through mid-March.
