For Cinco de Mayo

In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, La Fondita in Amagansett will have specials on Sunday that can be ordered online or by calling 631-267-8800.

The specials are a tamal filled with chicken served in a green sauce; a tamal filled with pork served in a red sauce, and a tamal filled with sautéed poblano, jalapeño peppers and Monterrey Jack cheese. All tamals are served with rice, whole black beans, and salad. Also available is a chile relleno filled with shrimp and wrapped in bacon, topped with chile adobo cream sauce and served with rice, refried beans, and tortillas.

In addition, Coche Comedor, which is usually closed on Sundays, will be open for the holiday.

Mother’s Day Brunches

Mother’s Day is one of the biggest brunch days of the year, and Nick and Toni’s has weighed in with a prix fixe brunch menu, and, for those who can’t make brunch, a selection of a la carte dinner specials on May 12.

The $80 brunch menu includes choices of appetizer, entree, and dessert. Starters include sweet polenta with blueberries, mascarpone, and warm maple syrup; cured wild salmon with blinis, creme fraiche, and pickled ramps, and crispy artichokes with Parmigiano-Reggiano fonduta.

Among the main courses are grilled rack of lamb, Long Island duck confit, pan seared scallops, spring onion quiche, and skirt steak and eggs tagliata. Tartufo, ricotta cake, sweet cream panna cotta, blood orange sorbet, and pistachio gelato round out the meal.

The complete Mother’s Day brunch and dinner menus can be found on the restaurant’s website.

The Bell and Anchor in Noyac will serve a Mother’s Day brunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The menu includes classics like eggs Benedict and a fancier lobster Benedict and French toast as well as more unusual brunch entrée selections such as duck hash with poached eggs, bouillabaisse, and pan-roasted Scottish salmon. The restaurant is also open for dinner on Mother’s Day starting at 5:30.

Reservations can be made directly through the restaurant or through Resy.

SoFo Sandwich Co. Opens at Old Breadzilla Spot

The lunch options in Wainscott got more interesting this week with the opening of the SoFo Sandwich Co. at the long-empty spot that was previously home to Breadzilla, popular for its baked goods and takeout breakfast and lunch menu. The new shop is by Peter Ambrose, a catering chef whose food many will be familiar with from Love Bites, a fund-raiser for Katy’s Courage, among others.
