view web site ›'s insider take:

The restaurant at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor is as much of a Hamptons classic as the hotel itself, and more vibrant than the somewhat frayed guest rooms. Just past the wood-paneled parlor, with its armchairs and fragrant cigar case, the restaurant opens up into four separate dining rooms. The French-inspired menu changes seasonally; dishes might include duck-liver terrine with black truffles; steak au poivre; and oysters on the half shell from nearby Hog Neck Bay. (The lobster BLT is a popular lunch option.) But the real draw, apart from the celebrated wine list, has always been the lively and unpretentious social scene, which over the years has drawn the likes of Billy Joel, who's been known to play tunes on the house piano, and everyone's favorite Hamptons fixture, Alec Baldwin.—Darrell Hartman

Open Mondays through Sundays 8 to 10 am, 12 to 4 pm, and 5 to 10:30 pm, summer; 5 to 9:30 pm, winter.
