The small elegant and intimate dining room has beamed ceilings and fans and thick crown moldings above walls half painted beige and half covered with a subtle grass cloth. Wall sconces and antiques clocks adorn the walls and the dark hardwood…

75 Main, Southampton

Scarcely a week goes by, particularly in season, without a mention of 75 Main in Page Six of the New York Post. A celebrity sighting, maybe there was a photo shoot, or perhaps someone got overserved. Whatever the reason, 75 Main is a popular spot with locals and tourists alike. I like it because it…
