136 North Main St East Hampton NY United States


More institution than eatery, Nick and Toni's is an East Hampton right of passage located just north of the main village drag. Tucked behind a long driveway under mature shade trees, an elegant outdoor patio offers endless summertime memories laden with laid-back celebrities and well-heeled locals. Inside, a series of small dining rooms interconnect around a small bar and central kitchen with wood-burning oven. During high season a weekend reservation between 8pm and 9pm is one of the most coveted in town, becoming slightly more available in later evening privy to younger diners and yet-to-botox couples.

The Food

Worthy of its cult status, a market fresh menu begins with a treasure trove of salads made of locally sourced lettuces and produce. Seafood appetizers include those that are both friend and grilled, for more health conscious diners. A mostly-Mediterranean-style menu continues with wood-burning pizzas and fresh bread that contain Nick’s infamous wieners. Main course is a medley of land and sea with white fish specialties, grilled fillets and hearty pasta dishes for true vegetarians.

Last Word

East Hampton mainstay is one of NY’s most famous summertime restaurants offering a market-fresh menu of beef and seafood specialties for eager celebrity diners.
