a thank you for E Hampton recs

Our stretched week end in E Hampton turned out very satisfactorily gastronomically speaking. The recommendation for Bostwick's definitely fit the bill. We started with a drink at the bar (friendly customers and staff there too) and were seated on the deck to enjoy dinner and the sunset. We all had a fish entree (Friday habits) and though mine was a little dry in the thicker parts of the flounder (surprising) it was a very pleasant place and the food was better than just good. Lunch the next day brought us to Cyril's in Napeague - a little of everything, sort of. I had the mussels and my wife had the calimari (perfect, on both counts). Cyril had left for the islands and this was to be the season's ending weekend. Good timing for us. The Clam Shack was crowded but we passed it by in favor of Cyril's (a favorite of mine anyway). The down part of the weekend was in Montauk at Dave's Grill. The attitude there starts outside with a notice on the menu board that table seating requires a $25 minimun per person. That is not hard to equal or exceed with the prices charged. A simple wine on their list $35 was picked up later in the week for $8 in a shop - a lot beyond the usual spread for restaurant markup over retail. I decided on an Asian barbequed rib offering. A mistake on my part and on theirs too. Flavor was not exactly great and even though it was a double appetizer serving taken as an entree, no accompaniaments were served - a scant meal to say the least. My wife's bread encrusted fillet was much more bread than fish and dry to boot. The waitress tried to be pleasant but the maitress d'hote was surly beyond belief and helped to sour a hoped for pleasant dining out.
