New restaurants in the summer always happen, but this summer is different. More and more chefs and restaurateurs are moving into places like East Hampton and Montauk, and residents and travelers love it. This year, you can find diverse options, from new casual burger spots to high-brow Latin American restaurants serving intricate plates. There’s something for everyone to eat in the Hamptons and on the North Fork, and this summer, make sure to check out at least one of these while you’re here. These are the ten new restaurants in the Hamptons and on the North Fork you should visit this summer. 

Bridgehampton Inn & Restaurant

While not necessarily new, The Bridgehampton Club has a new kitchen because the team behind the Rhubarb Hospitality Collection has moved in for the summer. With locations in New York and the Hamptons, RHC is familiar with the gastronomy game. Still, this year, they’ll provide new dishes and partner with Chef Cynthia Battaglia to offer a new experience to the classic club on Midocean Drive. Expect favorites like the fried artichokes with espelette aioli to be still on menus.


Recently opened, the passion project N’AMO Seafood & Raw bar is already making waves. With a mixture of Italian and Far East influences, the opening saw celebrities like 50 Cent during Memorial weekend. If you’re in Montauk, stop by and order dishes like tuna tartare and squid ink ratatouille. Don’t sleep on their cocktails; they have many delicious drinks like Catch of the Day (tequila, italicus, hibiscus, grapefruit, agave, and lime).

Village Bistro

Less than a month old, the East Hampton’s Village Bistro is quickly becoming a neighborhood favorite. It’s the type of place you go for breakfast, lunch, and dinner all in one day. Each menu item exudes American coziness, and we wouldn’t mind spending all day there. They’ve been sold out every weekend because of mouth-watering dishes like the French onion soup and signature village burger. Book ahead if you want to grab a table with some friends. 

Shark Bar

Opened in May, Shark Bar is one of the newest beachside bars serving residents and travelers of Montauk. The teams behind the surf and turf Mavericks Montauk created the casual spot with an indoor and outdoor area. Served dishes like lobster fried rice and merguez Chicago-style hot dogs exude the laid-back character of the Bar. It’s all about camp here, and we’re all for it. Having a cocktail or two outside on a warm summer day during sunset sounds like a dream, and you can do that here. 

Big Grin Burger

While not necessarily a restaurant, the Big Grin Burger food truck is the perfect place for a laidback snack. Inside the North Fork Table and Inn (outside area), Big Grin Burger is an added option to the popular restaurant and is perfect for a quick treat or two on a hot summer day.

The Maidstone Hotel

The Maidstone Hotel, a recently updated property to the hospitality scene, is not just another hotel. It’s a unique experience, offering new rooms, public spaces, and various events. These events cater to multiple interests, from coffee pop-ups hosted by Gucci to pottery wheel classes offered twice a month. The hotel is set to become the ultimate destination for travelers.

In addition to these exciting updates, the 150-year-old property features an onsite restaurant helmed by LDV Hospitality serving Italian cuisine that will impress you and your guests. The restaurant’s menus draw inspiration from the Italian coasts, including various dishes such as spaghetti alla Nerano with fried zucchini, squid ink linguine with crabmeat, and much more.

PopUp Bagels

We can’t write about food in New York without mentioning bagels. That’s almost a sin. PopUp Bagels in Amagansett is a chain from former Wall Street exec Adam Goldberg. With some locations in New York, the first Hamptons pop-up opened in the Meeting House restaurant on 4 Amagansett Square. It’s already getting intense, with an entire day’s stock sold out within the first few minutes of opening.  

Ocean Club Montauk

Another location that isn’t necessarily new, the Ocean Club Montauk, is getting a complete makeover, including bringing in new chefs. Acclaimed Chef Jarad McCarroll takes the reins, and with a complete renovation (the new space has at least 200 seats), it’s expected to land some crowds when it opens this June. 

Casa Sereña at the Surf Lodge

The Surf Lodge is diversifying, and that’s a good thing. Casa Sereña is the newest concept, and most dishes are meant to be shared in true Mediterranean fashion. Plates like the lobster Castelli and oysters will transport you to places like Italy and Spain, vibes and all. 

Seven Beach Lane

Right along Westhampton Beach, you’ll find the recently renovated Seven Beach Lane Hotel. It’s the area’s newest spot, just in time for summer. The dining room at the hotel is a blend of outdoor and indoor, and the dishes (like the broiled Peconic gold oysters) are inspired by the ocean. If you get too full, make a reservation and spend the night. You won’t regret it.
