Over near Three Mile Harbor, the Blend, the new restaurant opened by the chef and owner of Michael’s, is serving dinner from 5 to 9 nightly. 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.
I like to celebrate and plan to have a grand meal . . . at home, with friends who can walk home afterward. Driving around East Hampton drunk in the wee hours is just another way of saying, “I can’t wait to see my name in the police blotter of The East Hampton Star next Thursday!”
Holiday dining at the 1770 House in East Hampton this weekend will include a four-course prix fixe tasting menu at $110 per person, plus tax and gratuity. In Sag Harbor, Lulu Kitchen and Bar will host a New Year’s Eve celebration that includes an early, 5:30 p.m., seating and a later second seating at 8 that comes with a glass of champagne, party favors, and a four-course prix fixe.
Homemade holiday gifts are often the best and most economical. They show that you made some effort, and it’s something your children can join in on. I mean, who doesn’t have fun melting chocolate, crushing candy canes, and licking the spatula and bowl?
For those who would rather dine out on Christmas Day, Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor will offer a traditional three-course dinner. The Highway Restaurant and Bar in East Hampton will serve an a la carte menu with holiday specials on Christmas Eve.
