As a Hamptons go-to for celebrities and locals alike, Dopo La Spiaggia’s two locations out east are perfect for a casual but elevated lunch or dinner. The culinary commitment to Italian authenticity is admirable, and it’s executed with a flair that’s distinctly Hamptons-driven.
For us, meals at Dopo La Spiaggia always start with the classic Fritto Misto, which includes shrimp, calamari and squash. You also can’t go wrong with the Carpaccio, which naturally features Wagyu beef along with a parmesan crisp. Next up, we’re liable to order the squid-ink Tagliolini, and there’s the Calamarata, featuring a Neapolitan-style beef ragu, for those who’ve got more of an appetite.
Pro tip: their wine list has some amazing value among the Italian reds.
