New Restaurant Openings In The Hamptons For Summer 2022

If you’re spending time in the Hamptons this summer, check out this list of brand new restaurant openings for summer 2022.

The Hamptons has its slew of classic go-to restaurants, many of which have been around for decades. But each summer, you can also look forward to a rush of new openings, with everything from first-time restaurateurs taking over old spaces to recognizable names from the city opening up shop. That's very much the case for 2022: there are new sushi spots, a Roberta's outpost, a remake of Amagansett's Astro's Pizza, and more. As with our NYC openings guide, we haven’t tried everything on this list yet so we can’t make any promises. We’ll be adding new spots throughout the summer.

For more restaurant guidance, check out our list of The Best Restaurants In The Hamptons and The Best Restaurants In Montauk.

The Spots

East Hampton - open

Kissaki is no stranger to the Hamptons, with an existing location in Watermill, but O by Kissaki hopes to expand past sushi and omakase offerings with a Japanese-Italian fusion menu in East Hampton. Expect itameshi dishes like spaghetti with creamy dashi and sesame breadcrumbs, tomato burrata salad with tosazu, and matcha tiramisu. There’s also a solid selection of cocktails that you can enjoy on the large outdoor patio.

Roberta's Montauk imageoverride image

Roberta's Montauk

$$$$
Hours:SATURDAY05:00PM to 10:00PM

Montauk - open

Had you told a Bushwick passer-by in 2010 that Roberta’s would have a location in the Hamptons, they probably would have laughed in your face. Roberta’s was initially known for their cool clientele and for influencing many of our new favorite pies over the last 10 years, but now has expanded far beyond Brooklyn with locations in Los Angeles, a few outposts in Manhattan and selling frozen pies at Whole Foods. It was only a matter of time before they opened up a Hamptons spot, and their Montauk location features hits like Bee Sting and Margherita pies and various salumi, plus some seafood additions to suit the beachside setting.

The Best Restaurants In Montauk


East Hampton - to be announced

Popular mini-chain Sant Ambroeus already has a location in Southampton, and now they’re expanding even further East. No official word on when they’ll be opening, but they’ll be taking over the old Babette’s space. Sant Ambroeus feels like a natural fit to fill the Babette’s brunch void (the large windows and prime real estate are ideal for people watching), plus, like the other locations, they’ll have a bunch of pastries you can take with your coffee for a stroll.

Lobster Roll Lunch imageoverride image

Lobster Roll Lunch

$$$$

Southampton - open

Better known as “Lunch” for its recognizable, straightforward outdoor sign, the pilgrimage to Lobster Roll has been the cornerstone of many a trip to the Hamptons. Despite the institution's almost 60-year track record and popularity, they’ve never expanded beyond a single location, until this summer. They’ve opened a new spot in Southampton in the old Princess Diner space, featuring the eponymous lobster rolls (available in both Maine and Connecticut styles), crab cakes, and other seafood classics.

The Best Restaurants In The Hamptons


Enchanté Bistro

$$$$

Southampton - to be announced

Enchanté is from the same folks behind Sí Sí, one of our current East Hampton favorites, so we’re looking forward to this French bistro. The menu will feature typical seafood bistro fare spanning fruits de mer platters to lobster frites, and while it’s right off of Hampton Road, the slight distance away from Southampton’s busier main street is ideal for quieter evenings when you’re trying to avoid bumping into someone you know.


Westhampton - open

The building that houses Fauna used to be the home of chef Star Boggs’ eponymous restaurant. Boggs sold the restaurant shortly before he passed away last year, and the new owners have revamped the space with kitschy, animal-inspired decor. The menu is New American with plenty of seafood and some shareable steaks, plus there’s a solid cocktail lineup with classics and seasonal drinks.


Amagansett - open

Astro’s has been reinvented this summer. Yes, we’re talking about that Astro’s – the pizza place where you ate a greasy slice after a night at Talkhouse. While they’ve kept the name and you can still get a slice, under new ownership, they’re also serving cocktails, plus non-pizza dishes like pastas, shrimp scampi, and chicken piccata. More outdoor space is also on the horizon, so you’ll be able to enjoy your meal in the sunshine with your slice or a cocktail.


Shelter Island - July

Shelter Island has shaken its reputation for being the sleepiest part of the Hamptons in recent years, and the addition of French bistro Léon will likely continue that trend. The restaurant is slated to open in mid-July and will feature provincial cuisine with a wood-burning hearth and currently calls itself “a love letter to Shelter Island” on its website.

Little Ruby's Montauk imageoverride image

Little Ruby's Montauk

Montauk - open

Australian all-day cafe Ruby's has partnered with Ruschmeyer's to bring breakfast classics, salads, and more to Montauk this summer. The menu ranges from lighter plates like yogurt bowls and crispy rice salads to more filling dishes like fried chicken burgers or spicy sopressata pizza. There are plenty of vegetarian options and a cocktail menu too, so it’s great for a group when no one can agree on what they want to eat.
