A night out on the East End can mean dining at one of the finest restaurants in the Hamptons or on the North Fork, but on only one night can you dine at 40 of them—and that night has arrived! Welcome to the 9th annual Dan’s Taste of Two Forks!

Slow-smoked BBQ or scallop crude, fudge s’mores or freshly shucked oysters, skirt steak tacos or tuna tartare, lobster fritters or chicken wing lollipops…a once-in-a-lifetime experience awaits under the big tent on the waters of Mecox Bay as top chefs from some 40 local restaurants serve up signature dishes and delicious surprises, showcasing the finest local bounty that both forks have to offer.

In addition to all the food, glorious food, the libations keep flowing all night as toasts are raised with local and international wines, specialty spirits and classic summertime beers.
