Andrina at Almond
Almond restaurant's Artists and Writers series of dinners will kick off 2023 on Monday with an evening devoted to the work of Andrina Wekontash Smith. A writer, storyteller, and performer, Ms. Smith is a Shinnecock who grew up on the South Fork. With a theater degree from Emerson College in Boston, she has been writing stories based on her experiences and informed by issues of identity, race, and the unusual demographics of the East End of Long Island. The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater and a Watermill Center residency have been among her stops along the way. She divides her time between Brooklyn and a "tiny house" she is building on the Shinnecock Indian Reservation.

The event, which costs $59, includes a three-course meal served family style, a glass of wine or draft beer, and tip. Reservations are required and can be made by calling the Bridgehampton restaurant at 631-537-5665.

Austrian Wines Featured
Nick and Toni's restaurant in East Hampton will have a Winter in Austria wine pairing dinner on Jan. 26. Inspired by winter in the Alps, the meal will be crafted by the chef Michael Zuckerman, the pastry chef Kelsey Roden, and Chimene Macnaughton, who is the beverage director. 

Consisting of four courses, the dinner will start off with canapes such as braised oxtail, foie gras torchon, creamed herring tart, and speck ham with drunken goat cheese served with a sparking brut rose. The first course will be beet-cured Arctic char with samplings of two gruner veltliner white wines. Rabbit schnitzel with spaetzle will be the second course, served with a riesling. It is followed by a smoked duck leg served with a pinot noir, and apple Linzer tarte and nero cookies for dessert, served with a furmint dessert wine.

The dinner, which starts at 6:30 p.m., costs $150 and does not include tax and tip. The wines poured will be available for purchase with special pricing at the event through Jacques Franey of Domaine Franey. Reservations for the dinner can be made through Resy.
