While fresh seafood and New American dishes dominate the menus at many North Fork restaurants, it is much harder to find authentic, high quality Cantonese cuisine in eastern Long Island.
So it made sense that when chef Rosa Ross opened Greenport’s Scrimshaw in 2004, the Asian-influenced waterside restaurant located on Preston’s Wharf, her hand-wrapped dumplings stuffed with homemade fillings quickly became the eatery’s most popular item.
“When I opened the restaurant, I thought I’d put them on the menu for a few weeks,” said the Hong Kong born culinary instructor and cookbook author. “They became our best seller. If I do 10 tables, eight will order dumplings.”
“Out here, you can’t get good dumplings,” she added.
