Sotta Sopra brings Mediterranean style to Main Street Amagansett. This Northern Italian eatery is owned by several of the partners involved in Bobby Van's. The restaurant features salads, antipasto, and pasta dishes, along with a selection of fish and classic steakhouse selections. Wood-oven pizzas are served daily. Reservations are not required but suggested.
Fish and shellfish and shrimp and lobster draw shoppers down a narrow driveway to find Stuart's, where a vacant lot attests to its being a place where local fishermen bring catches for shipping to Hunt's Point. Charlotte Sasso, the proprietor, says she can tell you who caught the fish you are about to buy. The market specializes in lobster from Nova Scotia and will cook them to order in its convection steamer. Some vegetables, produce, and gourmet appetizers, salads, and desserts make it easy to gather everything you might want for a meal.
Zakura is the latest name of the longtime Japanese restaurant in Amagansett, which some people still think of as Mount Fuji. It has a full bar with such drinks as a white chocolate martini. Inexpensive lunch specials - 12 pieces of sashimi over rice for $12 or a Bento Box for $15, for example - are popular. The sushi bar is a long one, and there are 30 different hand rolls. The Zakura roll combines lobster tempura, asparagus, and lettuce topped with spicy salmon.
