||Dining out in the Hamptons can be Affordable…..Greetings Hamptons Mouthpiece readers, when many people think of the Hamptons, they think it is only a summer resort area where the rich and famous hangout for the summer..They come to go to the beach, dine out at the hundreds of restaurants, party and attend over-priced events… I had several people ask me this summer “people actually live here year-round”, I looked at them puzzled..why would you think people don’t live here year-round. Even before I moved to Sag Harbor, I have always loved the Hamptons in the Fall, for many reasons.
- No traffic,
- Prix Fixe menus at Restaurants
- The beaches are beautiful and quiet in September
- Shopping, many sales on items that I could not afford full price.
- Everyone is kind, warm and very friendly
- Bikers respect the road
I decided to bring you information in one place that you may not be aware of…this article will focus on Restaurant specials during the off-season…Special Thanks to Word Hampton

I am sure that there are many other restaurants that are having a prix fixe for the off season, I would suggest if the restaurant you want to go to is not on this list, you call them and ask them if they are offering fall specials or ww.longislandrestaurantnews.com…If you had a bad experience at a restaurant during the summer, give the restaurant a second chance you may find that you will have a better experience during the Fall…I try to avoid restaurants that are crazy crowded in the summer and I go to those restaurants in the Fall and winter because I find the service to be more relaxed, better service and the food is not rushed.
