Comfort food gives us good reason to embrace that winter-like chill in the air. In the Hamptons, there are plenty soul-warming dishes to keep you satisfied until spring. Here are some of our favorite foods to warm up with when on the South Fork.
The Springs Tavern
It doesn’t get more comforting than a hearty home cooked meal. When you’re in the mood for a dish that tastes even better than mom’s, hunker down at The Springs Tavern. The gastro pub is currently serving a grilled center-cut pork shop served with whipped mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy and roasted root vegetables.

This beloved gastronomic destination has a few cozy dishes you’ll be sure to love. The pulled pork grilled cheese made with cheddar, horseradish and an apple ginger jam is a spectacular choice when visiting the Sag Harbor location. When you’re at the Amagansett outpost, sink your fork in to the wood-oven macaroni and cheese with toasted breadcrumbs and roasted garlic.

Lulu Kitchen & Bar
Come in for the burrata and stay for the beef bourguignon made with carrots, pearl onions and mushrooms with a side of creamy polenta. You won’t be sorry.

Rowdy Hall is known for its classic comfort food. One of their signature favorites for this time of year is the chicken pot pie with roasted white and dark meat, carrots, peas, onions, creamy chicken gravy and a flaky biscuit crust.

There are so many great choices at this French-American bistro that it’s hard to take a wrong turn — even the escargot can be considered a comfort food at this restaurant. The Le Grand Mac & Cheese with prosciutto and truffles is a customer favorite — you’ll understand why after the first bite. The steak frites — marinated hanger steak with a bordelaise sauce — is another irresistible option.

The Kafteri Dip is a comforting — yet healthy — Greek dish that is perfect for noshing. It is made with red bell peppers, jalapenos, Greek yogurt, feta and Greek olive oil.
