Savor the North Fork

slide4The North Fork is revered for their wineries and tasting rooms, its many B&Bs, and of course its selection of varied cuisines. Here are a few unique eateries, hand selected by two of our staff, local North Forkers themselves, who believe these hot spots have something special to offer. We hope you enjoy a taste of the North Fork!

Noah’s
Chef Noah Schwartz, who has been praised by Best Chefs America multiple times, understands the importance of keeping things local, being a native Long Islander himself. Specializing in “seafood inspired small plates”, this hot spot also caters private events, and has a food truck that travels all along the East End and in Manhattan. If you take the Jitney between the two, you can catch them on Friday evenings and early Monday mornings in Sag Harbor. This staple of Greenport village is not to be missed!
