A year-round, cozy breakfast and brunch spot with a Mexican twist and produce picked from the chef’s own garden.

"This is one of my favorite places to come for breakfast, it’s just a great little place. Chef / owner Colin Ambrose sources everything locally, plus he has a huge garden in his backyard. Everything is house-made, fresh, and really good. Their breakfast burritos are great and I really like the spicy vegetable hash made with eggplant and peppers from his garden, with some corn and potatoes."
FED Pro > Chef Joe Realmuto

"They have really healthy good food and the spicy green salsa they put on the table is really delicious."

You can't go wrong with dosa #6 (Masala Deluxe - spicy Indian potatoes, roasted tomatoes, spinach, & jack cheese) and #9 (Curry Chutney Chicken - roasted onions, & spinach) paired with an iced cardamom coffee. You'll want to get a few peanut butter cookies for later."

"This is a classic place with very good fish because they are a fishing family and have been here for many years. There’s a restaurant, a clam bar, and a market. It’s great to come with kids, you can walk around with an ice cream and have a great time."
FED Pro >  Chef Marc Murphy

"Great for wandering around and checking out their food. Not only do they have wonderful fish, but they also have great meat, vegetables, olive oils, vinegars, rice, arborio rice, and things like that. If you really want to have a nice dinner at home rather than going out, come shopping here."

"I’m a big fan of Kathleen’s bakery. She has, by far, the best pastries around. We often buy a cake called the Marie Antoinette. She also has a great chocolate cake and makes the best croissants. They are nice and fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside, not too sweet."

The Dock | Montauk

"It is one of the last truly local spots. The vibe is a good blend of fishermen coming right off the boats, locals who like to dine here, and new city people who realize that is really the best spot around to have a casual meal and some good fresh fish. It is very simple tavern food that is always excellent, fresh, and consistent. They make clam chowder with actual clams and you can get a fish sandwich and know the fish came right off the boats."
FED Pro  >  Chef John Yashinowsky (Crow's Nest)

"It is a local’s paradise. All the people from Gosman’s are here, they are slinging fish all day and then coming here afterwards to drink a beer. It is pretty cool."
FED Pro  >  Chef Gray Gardell-Gross (668 Gig Shack)

"This is a great bar. It is very civilized with really good seafood. I love the mussels. Sit at the bar and grab a couple of beers. It’s a real local hangout away from all the crowds. They have a list of rules that specify no phones and if you have children, make sure they are under control."
FED Pro  >  Chef Chris Rendell (The Surf Lodge)

"It is this awesome place that is located at the dock, right next to Gosman’s Fish Market. It is one of those places that over time has acquired its own unique voice that could never be replicated. They should never change anything they do there. I love what it says about Montauk."
FED Pro  >  Chef Eli Sussman (formerly of Ruschmeyer's)

"It is on the dock and it's called The Dock. It might be confusing, but it's terrific. The food is simple, fresh, and tastes great. They have awesome specials that they write on a piece of yellow legal pad paper and pass it around from table to table. When things are done, they just cross them off with a Sharpie. The wild prawns and fresh day boat scallops are terrific."

Pizzeteria Brunetti | Westhampton Beach

They use house-made mozzarella and ricotta, house-infused oils, and local, seasonal ingredients for their nearly twenty pizzas.

"I love this place for its spot-on Neapolitan style pizzas. They're located in the back of the Haagen-Dazs store on Main Street, but that's really all you need and a 900 degree imported pizza oven. Get the Vongole with local clams, the Spezie, the Sopressata, or the Margarita."

I love to go for the zucchini chips appetizer, wood fire chicken entree, and the key lime fried mini doughnuts for dessert."
