A SECRET: The Foodies in their travels on the island
have come to know the finest restaurants in the Hamptons.
Our personal favorite is Roberts (755 Montauk Highway, Water
Mill, 631.726.7171) offering Italian Coastal Cuisine. The
kitchen of Chef de Cuisine Natalie Byrnes is without equal
on the east end. But as the summer approaches, were
hoping that one secret will enable us to get a weekend table
in this old roadside building filled with warmth and comfort.
The charming woman at the front is a gal from Huntington.
She handles the phone, the reservations, the seating and more.
Tell Lisa youre from Huntington and ask her to hold
us a Friday night summer table for two. Try Roberts, you wont
