Highway Restaurant & Bar
Where we've featured it
With a higher price point and a location on a very tame stretch of Route 27 between Wainscott and East Hampton, Highway isn’t the place to start a wild night out. But the food here is very good, and there are plenty of big round tables that are nice for groups. This place is lively and the crowd isn’t too gray-haired, but it’s best-suited for a “let’s have some good food and a bottle of wine” kind of night.
As the name indicates, Highway is indeed right on the highway - though the Hamptons version of a highway is a two-way road, so that’s not something to worry about. The menu at this restaurant between East Hampton and Wainscott kind of jumps all over the place - from crab and papaya salad to seafood pastas to eggplant parm - but they pull it all off. This summer, they’re doing take out only, and they’re also doing sushi prepared by a chef from Greenwich Village’s Shuko, which has the same owner.
