Not only the real estate is booming in the Hamptons—everything has experienced a jump in demand.

For the past two years, people have been flocking to the Hamptons like never before.  Real estate there has bounded to new heights, leading to supply shortages, bidding wars for homes, and uplifting neighborhoods previously overlooked.  Of course, the overcrowding also spills into other services besides real estate.  Restaurants have become difficult to get into, and reservations need to be made well in advance.

As reported by Crain’s NY, last summer, even well-heeled clients and former high-flying CEOs couldn’t be guaranteed a seat. Even tipping wasn’t enough.  Patrons who were willing to shell out a few extra hundred bucks, even opted to pick up the tab for an almost-finished table and settle in to wait there.  This year dining options will also be highly in demand.

Eyeing the opportunity, several smart New York Chefs are branching out to enter the scene in the East End of Long Island, offering hungry locals new options.  There are some eight places opening up in the Hamptons—between now and July.  Roberta’s the Brooklyn pizza place will open up in Montauk’s former Arbor space on Fort Pond Road.  The place set to open in late May, will offer 5,400-square-feet of space spread between the dining room, outdoor patio and two bars.  In all there will be seating for 165 patrons.

Also, the Big Apple’s affordable sushi chain, Kissaki, will be back in the Hamptons for its third season with O by Kissaki.  As per Crain’s, an 150-year old hotel, known as the Maidstone, has new dining options at The Living Room.  It is opening up in mid-May to offer local seafood and lobster.  At Astro’s Pizza in Amagansett, PJ Calapa will be taking over to offer a new Italian menu when it opens in the end of May.

A former chef at Surf Lodge will be coming to Montauk in a surf-and-turf spot, overlooking Fort Pond.  Known as the Mavericks, it will open a 200-seat, indoor-outdoor eatery and steak house in mid-June. An eatery, dating back to 1965, named the Lobster Roll, has expanded to a new location on Route 27 in Southampton.  Enchanté, a French-inspired restaurant, is moving into the Southampton at the former Red Bar Brasserie on Route 27. Also, Shelter Island is getting a new European bistro named Léon, due to open in July.

Now all we need is some good kosher dining options in the Hamptons.
