2) Round Swamp Farm- East Hampton - What's not to like?! The cinnamon buns, the coffee cake, the guacamole, the chicken salad, the chocolate chip cookies.... oh, the list goes on and on your gut! This place is not where you want to go while dieting. I dare you to go into there and leave with just one thing! It's not going to happen!
3) Dreesen's Donuts at Scoop Du Jour - East Hampton - The donuts are freshly made and need I say more!? It's deep fried dough with sugar! You could serve me deep fried wood with sugar and I bet I'd eat it but the dough is a little easier to chew.... fluffier too!
4) Bobby Van's - Bridgehampton - If you're allergic to shellfish you may want to avoid the shrimp nachos at Bobby Van's. But if you're not, get ready for a spicy blob of shrimp, chips, jalapenos, guacamole and enough cheese to keep Lipitor profitable for the next century. Yeah, the Chinese Chicken Salad is good too but for some reason it doesn't seem as decadent.
|Yeah, they look sweet and innocent at Mary's.|
6) Fresno - East Hampton - Tons of good stuff on the menu and a bar/restaurant scene that's fun and unpretentious is what keeps me going back to this East End staple. From some of the same people that bring you Red Bar and Beacon this is the closest to my house so I'm a little biased. I'm also terminally in love with the Sticky Toffee cake desert. I also drool over their ...staff... I mean burgers and fries. Gosh, I only hope I look attractive in my Sans-a-belt pants with Spanx
when I got there next time!!!?
|Fat Free Biscuits at Grill...NOT!|
On an entirely different note, they're having a Soap Box Derby this weekend in Sag Harbor. The big event will take place this Sunday afternoon on High Street. The festivities will begin with a parade down Main Street at 1pm (they have a parade for everything in Sag Harbor) followed by the big race on High Street. While my 25 year old nephew had no clue what a soap box derby was, I proudly told him to keep an eye out for the kids named Spanky McFarland and Alfalfa Switzer. They're both heavily favored to win! There's still no word if Darla and Petey will be there.
