Is it just me or does it seem like every car on the road right now is a Volvo with Vermont plates? Not only that but they’re stopping cold in the middle of the road to make a right turn!!!? SHOOT ME! While I’m not a total misanthrope (PSAT study class word) , the idea of venturing into the wild wild world of the Hamptons in August is sometimes too much for me. So what to do?! Well finally there’s something new to say about the lame situation of food delivery out here! UBER EATS has finally arrived… while the selection is a bit limited there are a few not too expensive standouts; The Seafood Shop and
The Highway Diner in Wainscott and Buoy One Seafood in East Hampton. All will bring fully cooked dinners right to your right door. But if breakfast is your thing there’s also more to the skinny on getting chubby without leaving home.
Grindstone Donuts in Sag Harbor is also delivering!!! In case you’ve never been to Sag Harbor on a weekend morning and saw the line out the door, you know I have you’re attention on this! I mean we’re talking “DONUTS.” But if you think I’m talking “Dunkin,” you couldn’t be more wrong. I’m talking a brioche style donut with flavors like smores, lemon poppy and classic glaze! Recently I had the chance to stop by and talk to owner Kyle Shanahan about what brought him to town and why his a hole cut above the rest!
Finally, in addition to Uber Eats there are Chinese restaurants that I think are worth their weight in MSG. Number 1 (631-726-8080) in Water Mill and Phoenix in Wainscott (631-537-0011). There are a few others in the area but one of them actually has Immodium on the menu which to me is a big red flag…OK I’m kidding. While my two recommendations aren’t exactly Shun Lee or Mr. Chow’s, they’re both good, hearty and reasonably priced. Both are the best Chinese delivery in the HAMPTONS! Although, that’s kind of like saying it’s the friendliest restaurant in France.
