If your town of choice is Greenport for date night consider checking out the Frisky Oyster. The menu changes seasonally and showcases exceptional cuisine incorporating local and fresh ingredients from farmers and vendors. Menu highlights include Peconic gold oysters friskafella, tempura soft shell crab and pomegranate BBQ braised beef short ribs, delicious!

A true hidden gem in the town of Saint James The Trattoria dishes up mouthwatering Italian cuisine. While you can find your typical traditional favorites at the restaurant chef Stephen Gallagher adds his own personal touch to make each plate extraordinary. When you think chicken Milanese you might imagine the staple breaded cutlet and arugula salad but when dining at The Trattoria you get far more than your standard. One of the many great things about the Trattoria is that they also have new menu items weekly so you’re always in for a tasty surprise during your visit.
