Hampton Maid goes beyond breakfast with R.aire, Amber Waves Farm shares are available for summer, Taste the Greats in coming and more nibbles from the East End “Food Seen.”

R.aire at The Hampton Maid is opening its doors for the first time on Friday, April 1. Chef Alex Bujoreanu has created a Spanish influenced menu featuring tapas and authentic paella, as well as local fish and seafood. The menu is complimented with a curated global wine list and custom craft cocktails. Dinner service will be offered Tuesday through Saturday, 5:30–9:30 p.m. along with The Hampton Maid’s popular six-course chef tasting menu, served Friday and Saturday, which changes weekly.

Amber Waves Farm in Amagansett is now offering small shares (six to nine items) in addition to full shares. This year, they are also offering add-on shares consisting of homemade soups, pesto, salad dressings and more. They have full and small share pricing with nine various lengths of terms — Memorial Day through Thanksgiving, one for the month of August, another from July Fourth through Labor Day. And in case you wonder, they follow the organic regulations outlined in the Northeast Organic Farmers Association Pledge, using sustainable soil-building practice and natural fertilizers. They do not use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides.
