With the Hamptons being so close to NYC and with so much of NYC spending their summers in the Hamptons, you’d think city restaurant groups would come out and establish footholds out east.

With Highway, in East Hampton, you’d think right. The hospitality geniuses behind NYC mainstays like Eleven Madison Park and Pasquale Jones have delivered on a bet that the same level of class and quality that works in the city, works out east too.

Highway sports a menu that’s nouveau American in principle, but takes on influences from Italy, the Middle East, Asia and elsewhere. While you’re bound to love the pan roasted salmon or spit roasted organic chicken, you’d be remiss in not considering the prosciutto & fennel sausage meatballs, served with broccoli rabe in a way you’d expect from the local trattoria. The hummus plate is a great way to start, but you may find yourself traveling away from the traditional menu and more towards the dedicated Asian menu for the rest of your meal. We can’t say we haven’t dreamed of seeing a local Long Island duck served crispy with hoisin, the way you’d expect to see in Chinatown. Highway delivers on that, with equal measures of authenticity and elevation.

Pro tip: the coconut lime mousse, paired with an espresso.
