Here's a taste of Hamptons hospitality, accompanied by a heaping side of boldface names: A gracious hostess guides you past tables helmed by the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker and Ron Perelman, and a knowledgeable waitress delivers a comforting plate of free-range chicken with roasted vegetables and garlic jus. Granted, if you're not an A-lister, a Friday or Saturday night reservation can be impossible. (Call ten days in advance, and be prepared to redial. Alternatively, try your luck on But if you score a seat, you'll be well taken care of, no matter who you are. During the summer, outdoor tables provide much-needed extra seating, and a pleasantly private, albeit generally celeb-free, back room is less hectic. Stroll by the kitchen counter, though, and you'll come upon a wall covered in colorful drawings by the children of Christie Brinkley, Chevy Chase, and the restaurant's other famous patrons. On slower nights—Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday—wood-oven pizzas please the regulars.—Updated by Darrell Hartman
