The 1770 House has a small dining room, with old-wood tables, soft lighting, and Oriental rugs, and a more casual dining area and tavern-style bar in the basement with less extravagant prices. The restaurant offers cosseting service, high-quality contemporary American food with an emphasis on simplicity, beautiful presentation, and has a comfortable sound level. Main course choices include halibut with grilled-tomato vinaigrette, sea scallops, and lamb loin chops. A nice addition is an outdoor patio where, along with enjoying their food, you can enjoy a beautiful evening outside as well. Also, accompanying their downstairs tavern fare is an extensive wine and cheese menu at the bar, with cheeses provided by Cavaniola's Gourmet in Sag Harbor.
