There are so many new sources of culinary pleasure on the East End! Wölffer Kitchen opens in the former Cuddy space next month in Sag Harbor. Circo has replaced the Delmonico’s space in Southampton. Momi Ramen has taken over the former Turtle Crossing in East Hampton. And…if you’re nice, you might eat on the second floor of Bridgehampton icon Pierre’s. Upstairs @ Pierre’s is a private rental space for entertaining, available to Pierre’s regulars.
