Zach Erdem, the new owner of Southampton’s 75 Main restaurant, has turned the 20-year-old landmark into a year-round destination combining its familiar Hamptons style with a New York City nightlife vibe.
Townline BBQ in Sagaponack, offers a casual, family friendly atmosphere with affordable prices and a real ribs joint atmosphere. After traveling to Texas and Kansas, owner Mark Smith and executive chef and partner Joe Realmuto decided that authentic Texas BBQ, with a little bit of pork on the menu, was the winning concept. Traditionally Texas BBQ features meat smoked with dry rub and no sauce; BBQ sauce is served on the side.
Turtle Crossing brought their barbecue to East Enders in 1994, and they’re still a Hamptons fixture, offering a broad menu that goes beyond traditional southwestern cooking. The New York Times says Turtle Crossing serves the “Island’s Best BBQ” and they were named among the “Ten Most Affordable Restaurants on Long Island.” Chef Arthur Wolf executes the menu while owner Stanley Singer, a native Oklahoman, oversees.
