Winter Eats

As we fall into the holiday season, we can’t help but gather ’round the table. Here are a few places to dine during the calm winter months, when indulgence is welcomed and palates are gratified.

Vine Street Café offers a cozy fare all winter long.

Harvest on Fort Pond
A true place for family during the holidays, Harvest serves up family-style portions of traditional Italian fare. This gem on the East End evokes nostalgia in the best way. 11 S. Emery St., 631.668.5574,

This hidden treasure lays out rustic elegance with its dark-wood decor mixed with a quaint and cozy atmosphere lit by candlelight. With an intriguing Italian menu that tastes like mom’s, Robert’s is sure to be a perfect spot for the dreary winter months. 755 Montauk Highway, 631.726.7171,

Vine Street Café
Neighborhood chefs and owners Terry and Lisa Harwood work with local farmers, fisherman and vineyards to shape their menu designed for a farm to table-style American cuisine. A modern and stylish setting, Vine Street offers traditional and unexpected toppings for their extensive inventory of steak options. 41 S. Ferry Road, 631.749.3210,

1770 House
Still holding much of its original colonial charm, this converted inn invites with warmth and welcome for the holidays. The steep wooden staircase, book-lined lounge, and exposed ceiling all lend to the nuance of historic luxury bliss. With refined Contemporary American cuisine, or traditional pub fare downstairs, it doesn’t get much better than if you were at home. 143 Main St., 631.324.1770,

Osteria Salina
Inspired by an Aeolian island off the coast of Sicily, Osteria Salina provides fresh food with a side of Italian hospitality. Seafood is the star here in dishes like octopus and tuna tartare. 95 School St., Bridgehampton, 631.613.6469,
