With the governor’s announcement on Monday that restaurants and bars across the state will be restricted as of that evening to takeout and delivery service only, some of this news may have changed since press time. Below are some businesses that had already moved toward a coronavirus contingency plan as of Monday. More recent information is available here.


Eating at Home

The Art of Eating in Bridgehampton is offering special breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus for dining at home. A breakfast strudel made with scrambled eggs, Gruyere, and spinach in phyllo dough is $25 and serves three. For lunch and dinner, the main dishes include whole roasted chicken with lemon and herbs and roasted root vegetables, which costs $72 and serves three to six; lentil and sweet potato shepherd’s pie for $39 for a serving that feeds three to four, and $59 for one that feeds 6 to 10; and roasted salmon with cracked pepper, lime, and red onion marmalade for $21 per portion with a minimum order of four.

Curbside Pickup

As of Monday, the Wolffer Kitchen restaurants in Amagansett and Sag Harbor were offering their full menu for takeout and curbside pickup. Bottles of Wolffer Estate wines are also available for curbside pickup at the estate’s boutique and tasting room.

The Springs General Store is providing curbside pickup for its takeout orders, and is exploring the possibility of making local home deliveries. Those interested in the latter are asked to call the market for more information.

Dreesen’s Catering in East Hampton has a special menu for takeout and curbside pickup, and it is providing home delivery with a minimum order of $200 plus a delivery fee. The menu features items such as chicken pot pie for $20, 20 pieces of fried chicken for $30, and baby back ribs for $30 a rack. Half and full trays of entrees such as lasagna ($40, $80), grilled salmon with lemon, herbs, and dill sauce ($60, $120), and chicken Parmesan ($45, $90) are also available.

Landry’s operates more than 600 restaurant franchises including Morton’s the Steakhouse, McCormick and Schmick seafood eateries, the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, and the Rainforest Cafe.


More Adjustments
