You get in and out through the La Parmigiana shop where purchases are irresistible. Some sauces are now marketed in other shops.

The dining space at Le Chef is small but nicely laid out, with good lighting and acoustics. The restaurant, in the village business district, has an interesting idea about dinner prices, offering a prix fixe with a la carte choices. You just pay a little more if you want to mix and match. As its name suggests, Le Chef tends toward French cooking, with nut-crusted local flounder, semi-boneless duckling, Prince Edward Island mussels, and filet of beef au poivre. Risotto and veal scaloppine are borrowed from Italy. A lunch menu features sandwiches, salads, freshly made soup, and a la carte entrees.

Brought to you by David Loewenberg and Kirk Basnight, little/red is red bar/brasserie's younger sibling. The menu is long and diverse.

The grilled cheese sandwich with duck, brie, and cabbage is a noted choice, and the wait staff recommends truffle fries with it. The menu, including desserts, and the service gets good marks from Laura Donnelly, The Star's food writer.

Tucked behind the movie house near the Southampton Inn, this small restaurant exudes Southampton. The prices are high enough to allow well-spaced tables, which adds to the elegant ambience. The owner and chef, Doug Gulija, is understandably proud that the cafe has been called the best seafood house on Long Island by Newsday and "better in every way" by Zagat. Everything, from the hot rolls to the sorbets, is made in-house, and the bar now has an innovative menu. Alfresco dining is an option.
