At the suggestion of a fellow CH, my husband and I had a lovely and leisurely lunch at the Jedidiah Hawkin's Inn in Jamesport, on the North Fork. The food was uniformly excellent, interesting and well presented - my only negative comment would be that we both thought there was a bit too much celery in the lobster roll. The place was packed on a very soggy Friday, but we were able to make a reservation an hour ahead of time. The inn itself is beautiful. Service was professional, though there was a little more of the "I'm so and so and I'll be your server" sort of thing than I'd like. The maitre d' was very solicitious - had just started a couple of days before (had worked at a restaurant in Southampton before - don't remember the name) and we had a couple of interesting chats with him - especially enjoyed the description of their mushroom supplier who seems a curious sort. Espresso served with a lemon rind - a little pet peeve of mine, but the espresso was very good. The wine list is heavy on local wines (but with a diverse selection of other choices) - we decided to have try a LI white and our waitress gave us tastes of couple. We settled on the chef's reserve - Tom Schaudel’s Reserve Chardonnay, from the North Fork - $40 - delicious. Total was about $170 including tax and tip (and a $10 bottle of sparkling water. So, thank you v. much for the recommendation - we eat out quite frequently in Manhattan and thought that this was one of the better meals we've had in quite awhile.
