Memorial Day (Monday, May 30) and the official start of the East End’s busy summer season is around the corner, so now’s the time to take advantage of all the special things that will be nonexistent or difficult to enjoy in the Hamptons once the crowds arrive from points west.

We continue our countdown of 20 things to do before Memorial Day in the Hamptons (or North Fork) with:

#5: Go Out for a Fancy Dinner

You won’t find better restaurants on Long Island than on the East End. There’s something for every palate, every preference and every style.

The only problem: Everybody knows about the amazing restaurants, and after Memorial Day, they’re going to be packed! Now is the perfect time to go out for a great meal and not have to worry about whether or not you’re going to have to wait six hours for a table.

Not sure where you want to go? That’s what we’re here for! Dan’s Papers’ Best of the Best competition lets the community choose their favorite restaurants (and much, much more). Here are a few Platinum winners from 2015 we think you might like. Bon appetit!
