A sister restaurant of the Bell and Anchor in Sag Harbor, Fresno stages wine dinners and tastings. The chef, Gretchen Menser, concentrates on a relatively small menu and on expert preparation. Grilled Duroc pork chops with Johnny cakes, blackeyed peas, bacon and mango chutney are on the menu this summer, and salmon tartare is a popular appetizer. You can eat at the bar, a friendly gathering place, or on a patio on warm nights. The main room is airy, with long banquettes on one side, and you can hear what your dinner mates have to say.

On the site of a building that has held specialty food vendors going back to one known as the chicken house, this rival to places like Citarella has "a little bit of everything," including takeout breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A salad bar in the back is next to sushi from the Zokkon restaurant. Other fare includes sandwiches, wraps, prepared salads and vegetables, and rotisserie chickens. The rest of the building is a market, with grocery items, local produce, flowers, and good news: East Hamptoners no longer have to drive to the well-known Cromer's in Noyac for meats because a branch is right here, with fresh and marinated cuts including shish-ka-bob on skewers.

Mary's Marvelous developed a following from day one. There are a few seats in the small, sweet Amagansett shop, but most folks take the goodies out. Muffins, pastries, and scones are popular, as are breakfast egg dishes. For lunch, there are soups, and people love the panini and sandwiches. The East Hampton branch saves fans from a longer drive to Amagansett. It has an adjacent market that offers prepackaged food and other items. Coffee is taken seriously, with espresso and lattes. People say, "If it's from Mary's you know it's good."
