NAIA Hamptons celebrated their grand opening on August 1st at the Capri Hotel in Southampton on Montauk Highway. The newly opened NAIA (meaning Sea Nymph in Greek) is offers a fresh, sexy menu with farm to table global cuisine. NAIA is one of the few spots in the Hamptons where literally every dish on the menu shines like (edible) gold.

Founded by Michael Pitsinos, this one-of-a-kind dining experience pairs a phenomenally crafted menu with top notch service in a European beach-chic setting. Enjoy international favorites and craft cocktails as well as their bottomless brunch daily.

Come in for live music and events during select evenings. NAIA has a resident DJ and classical violinist Bud Cahill, who plays on Saturdays and Sundays poolside. 

A European Beach-Chic Vibe

The walls inside and outside of the restaurant are adorned by the art of Domingo Zapata, offering sexy summer murals. Additional art by Christopher Pugliese, also known as the Downtown DaVinci and Costa Picadas are on display.

Pair your experience with one of the refreshing, signature cocktails. One of our favorites is their signature NAIA Colada. It is made with Skinos masitha, Greek yogurt, lemon, vanilla, and cinnamon. The bartender, a Hamptons local, is incredibly talented and can also whip up whatever you desire.
