Not long ago, we got a call from a woman in Queens looking to get out of the city for a few days.
“I’ve gotta get outta here. Are you–and the restaurants– open right now? Nothing’s open here, and I just want someone to serve me a meal for a change!”
Oh, we get it. The pandemic has been, and continues to be isolating, sobering, and stifling. But we are grateful to say YES, most of the restaurants in Southampton and the greater East End area ARE open for both a dine-in experience and take-out expedience. Some even offer special prix fixe menus. And if you’re up for a little bundling up, one of our faves, Bistro Ete, even has an outdoor “Apres Ski” menu.
So what to expect when you visit? Everywhere you go here in the Hamptons, you’ll find all personnel masked and gloved. Restaurants require reservations, don’t generally serve late, and maintain careful socially-distanced seating. Masks are required by patrons anytime they are not seated at their table, same as they are here at the Manor. (If you’d like to know more about Covid-19 safety practices at A Butler’s Manor, read more here.)
And speaking of a meal worthy of a social media post…of course, you’ll be served an exquisite breakfast too! Chris and I are in California until April, but in our absence, manager Debbie Mckay has been earning stellar reviews for her secret recipe coffee cake… apple strudel …cinnamon raisin French Toast muffins, and more! Here’s a recent winner: banana crepes offset with avocado toast and a side of bacon. Beautiful and delicious!
So if you’re more than ready for a change of scenery, we’re ready for you! Shake those winter blues with a getaway to where you can be pampered for a change. Click here to check out our available rooms!
