Midwinter Awakenings
Serafina in East Hampton has reopened for the 2024 season. The North Main Street Italian eatery is open for dinner Tuesdays through Sundays at 5 p.m.

In addition to its own reopening in Montauk, Inlet Seafood has announced that locals can catch their own discount of 25 percent on Thursday evenings. There's also a "kids eat free" promotion on Sunday evenings.

While some are reopening, others are taking break. The Cookery in East Hampton will be closed until March 13.

New Artist Dinner
Almond restaurant in Bridgehampton will have an Artist and Writers dinner on March 4 with Jamie Diamond, a performance artist, writer, and filmmaker. The theme of her work is intimacy and connection between humans. Widely exhibited, she is also an educator at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. 

The dinner, served family-style, starts at 6:30 p.m. and features three courses, as well as a glass of wine or beer, for $49 plus tip. Reservations are required by calling the restaurant at 631-537-5665.

Igloos for Good
Gurney's oceanside igloos are warm, cozy, and decked out with activities and entertainment. But they also benefit local charities such as the Retreat. A $50 reservation fee collected at booking will go to those charities. The igloos also come with a requirement to spend a minimum of $100 on food and beverages, which could be higher during peak periods or holiday weekends. The igloos will be up through March in Montauk. 

Food choices are mostly designed for sharing, like a giant Bavarian pretzel, a charcuterie board, wild mushroom arancini, roasted garlic and goat cheese crostini, a hummus platter, and chili chicken drumettes. There are seafood options like oysters, shrimp cocktail, and tuna tacos, along with Passmore caviar. Sandwiches, soup, salads, and a menu for kids are also available. There's even dessert. 

Special warming cocktails include a bonfire sour, "afternoon tea" (with gin), and a mulled margarita. Bottle service is available.

Reservations can be made on OpenTable.

One Stop Dailies
One Stop Market in East Hampton has weekday dinner specials to take home from noon to 5 p.m.

Monday's meal is meatloaf with mashed potatoes and vegetables, Tuesday's is baked ziti with garlic bread and a garden salad, Wednesday's is roast chicken with fries and coleslaw, and Thursday's is sausage and peppers with garlic bread and Caesar salad.

Each dinner serves between two and three people and costs $19.99. They are available while supplies last. There are no substitutions. 

In North Sea
North Sea Tavern has Monday night trivia, a Tuesday and Wednesday night dart league, and bingo on Wednesdays. Live music and D.J.s are also in the mix. The tavern serves a menu of reliable pub fare along with steaks, a selection of sliders, tacos, pizza, and raw bar items. 

Daily food specials are 50-cent wings on Mondays, Taco Tuesdays with $3 tacos and $8 margaritas, and a burger night on Wednesdays for $10 with fries. Thirsty Thursdays have drink specials and 50-cent shrimp, and Sundays offer a $10 personal pizza. 

The website and the tavern's Instagram have updates and schedules for live performances.

Food Issues at R.M.L.
Southampton's Rogers Memorial Library will have a discussion of "simple nourishment and healthy eating" on Wednesday with Liz Sanicola from Hamptons Homestead.

Rather than take a proscriptive approach to eating, Ms. Sanicola will describe foods that can be added to a diet to "create abundance." She will offer simple swaps of nutrient-dense foods that can demystify health food and provide the body with the nutrition it needs to thrive. The talk is at 11 a.m., and registration is required. 

On March 6, Naela's Organics will demonstrate how to cook healthy Mediterranean dishes like cheese boats with eggs and feta cheese, served with hummus and tabbouleh salad, and for dessert Jordanian hareesa, a coarse semolina with sweet orange blossom syrup. A tasting will follow. Advance registration and payment of a $10 fee is required.
