On Monday, Almond's regular Artists and Writers evenings will feature Liz Collins, whose artistic practice focuses on textiles. She will discuss her work at the Bridgehampton restaurant over a family style dinner that starts at 6:30 p.m. Three courses will be served family style with a choice of a glass of wine or draft beer for $59 including tip. Reservations are required through the restaurant at 631-537-5665.

Seven Fish and More
Next Thursday, Nick and Toni's restaurant in East Hampton will have a wine pairing dinner based on the Italian Christmas Eve tradition of the feast of seven fishes. The dinner, designed by Courtney Sypher Barylski, the chef du cuisine, and Kelsey Roden, the pastry chef, starts at 6:30 p.m. with an Italian sparkling wine reception. Nibbles such as arancini di baccala, fritto misto, a local fluke crudo, scallops with prosciutto, and crostini with salmon will be served. The antipasto course is roasted local oysters with melted leeks and caviar. Lobster risotto is the first course, scampi is the second course, and codfish puttanesca is the third. Each is served with a wine matched to it by Chimene Macnaughton, the restaurant's beverage director. The final course, a zuppa Inglese and struffoli, a fried sweet dough with honey, has two dessert wines to sample.

The cost is $175 per person, plus tax and tip. There will be special pricing available that night for the wines served with the dinner provided through Jacques Franey of Domaine Franey. Reservations, which are required, can be made through Resy.
