I’ve griped forever about how there isn’t a good Mexican “sit down” restaurant in the Hamptons. I’ve complained and complained. Yes, I like La Fondita and Sabrosa but I can’t really see having a nice quiet dinner at either location. But this summer, it seems we finally can get the whole enchilada and enjoy it too!
|I’m sorry… I’m sorry… I like you!!!
After about 5 minutes, the table was ready and I sat down as fresh tortilla chips and salsa were being dropped off at the table. That was followed by the house Oaxaca salad and Lime Chipotle fajitas. While I know fajitas aren’t exactly gourmet and probably not the best way to judge the cuisine, I have to say they were really good and served with fresh made corn tortillas. By the way, yes you can make bad fajitas I should know, I worked at a Chi Chi’s in college (for those of you who don’t know, it was the Mexican Olive Garden of the 80’s). My partner in crime Peter had the fish tacos which which also garnered a big thumbs up. The final verdict is that I take back all the negative things I’ve said in the past about Blue Parrot. The snarky Go Fund Me page for the chef to take cooking lessons has been taken down and my mea culpa is complete. So , if you’ve not been to The Blue Parrot in years, take my advice and give it another shot.
Finally, just in time for August some good news about what makes the Hamptons such a fun place to live. According to sources, billionaire investor George Soros made a stop with a few friends at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor. While that’s not anything to set rumors flying what happened when the check was delivered is the interesting part. Apparently Mr. S. (as I call him) paid his hefty check with 4 figures not including cents and added on a 100%+ tip for the staff. While I haven’t been able to confirm this Christmas come early gift from the tight lipped staff at the hotel… my sources are pretty reliable. Besides, what’s so wrong with being nice!?
