The North Fork Table & Inn Restaurant, Southold

A world class restaurant in Long Island wine country.

On Main Road in Southold, opposite Old Field vineyard and due south of Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast is to be found one of the top restaurants on Long Island, and the New York area, the North Fork Table & Inn. Quite a few of my guests of late have been visiting the North Fork specifically to eat here; the restaurant has itself become a destination amongst lovers of good food. It is easy to understand why. Some friends and I took advantage of their prix fixe menu during last month’s Long Island Restaurant Week and were delighted as usual. Food, ambience and service left nothing to be desired.

And my friends, guests and I aren’t the only ones to be impressed. The Suffolk Times Review reported this week that The North Fork Table has just been given a score of 29 out of 30 in the recently published ‘Long Island Restaurant Survey’ 2011-2012 rankings. The survey included 901 restaurants reviewed by 6,217 diners.

The cuisine has been described as ‘dynamic American fare that is fully devoted to providing the highest standards in culinary excellence’. Inspired by homegrown organic produce, award winning North Fork artisanal cheeses, and the freshest of seafood (as is only possible when the fishing fleet docks less than a mile away on Southold and Peconic Bays), North Fork Table & Inn has all the attributes needed for drawing such a consistent crowd of admirers.

Add a wine list highlighted by many acclaimed and awarded Long Island wines, dining at the North Fork Table is an experience any restaurant patron and food aficionado is sure to enjoy as their reviews attest:

“A world-class gem on the North Fork. Food is exceptional: creative, local, beautifully presented. Service is outstanding: quiet, professional, unobtrusive, extremely knowledgeable. Ambiance is what you expect with food and service of this quality: simple, beautiful space, casual elegance, serene. And, in keeping with the setting and the ambiance, our birthday celebration was acknowledged without disturbing other diners. A truly beautiful experience.”

“Best food experience in my life. Excellent service!”

There are a variety of menu plans to choose from depending on what time of the day you are visiting the restaurant and  based on seasonal options. Some current menu choices are a $68 3-Course Prix Fixe menu and the Chef’s Tasting menu for about $30 more including wine paired with your dishes.

Menu options and opening hours

      Lunch is available in the restaurant on Saturdays and Sundays from noon until 2:30pm. You can check out the 2011

lunch service menu

      and

lunch tasting menu

      here.

Dinner is served from 5:00pm until 10:00pm Friday and Saturday evenings and from 5:00pm until 9:00pm Sunday, Monday, and Thursday. These links will take you to a sample dinner menu and sample dinner tasting menu.  Children 12 and under can enjoy a 2-Course Prix Fixe meal for $28.

Visitors should plan ahead as reservations are commonly taken one month in advance during high season. I can usually find my guests a table however if I have a few days notice. The restaurant  is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as well as Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Lunch Truck Service

Only the North Fork Table could come up with such gourmet food served from a truck. The best fast food stop I’ve ever come across, the lunch truck is open for service from 11:30 to 3:30 7 days a week. The ‘sublime stylings of Chefs Fleming and Hayden meet astounding, quick lunch convenience, head on’ with their lunch service menu.
If you don’t have time to come in and sit, but must eat on the move, this is a great option.
The North Fork Table is one of my top recommendations to guests when they ask for dining suggestions and I am delighted to have such a splendid culinary attraction as a neighbor; just remember to save room for breakfast!

I look forward to welcoming you to the Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast and to enjoy the epicurean delights of beautiful Southold soon!

Delectable Fare at The Frisky Oyster in Nearby Greenport

Favorite North Fork restaurant for locals and visitors alike The Frisky Oyster is one of my favorite places to eat in the local village of Greenport when I venture out of my own kitchen to eat the food prepared in someone else’s. I love to sit at the bar, where there is always a friendly and jovial crowd, or if in a quieter mood, tucked into one of the corner booths. I also love the Steak Frites (they take me back to Parisian Bistros I have known) the duck, prepared any way it comes, the fresh greens salads, and the barkeep makes a mean Cosmo!

Service is always excellent and consistent. Maybe having lived and worked in New York City for over 30 years has made me such a stickler for being properly served; it is almost as important to me as the food. I am very comfortable at The Frisky, as we locals call it, love the unobtrusive yet observant service, and am always sure to run into someone local I know; a sure sign of a great restaurant when it has such a following of loyal fans. Chef Robert Beaver who took over as owner just over a year ago has continued to grow the reputation for superior quality that the Frisky Oyster had built up over the last seven years under former owners Denis McDermott and Hank Tomashevski .  Originally from Richmond, Virginia, Robby developed his culinary skills by attending the renowned Culinary Institute of America, as well as receiving expert tutelage under celebrated chef Patrick O’Connell during his time at the five-star, Inn at Little Washington. During his time at the Inn he began a relationship with local farmers, enhancing his dishes by using the absolute freshest ingredients.

Farm-to-Table Cooking

Working closely with local food producers, Chef Robby became an advocate for sustainable fishing and farming, and for using those ingredients, the freshest, therefore most nutritious and tastiest in his kitchen. In 2008 his move to the North Fork, Long Island’s wine and farm country, gave him the opportunity to mesh his love for farm-to-table cooking with Eastern Long Island’s unique abundance of locally produced ingredients. Home to the world renowned and locally grown Long Island Duck, artisanal goat cheeses, organic vegetable and chicken farms, Peconic Bay Oysters and scallops and one of the finest most productive fisheries in the world, placed him in the perfect place to obtain the freshest ingredients needed for his craft.

 

The Frisky Oyster menu changes depending what is available on the local market and my guests who eat at the Frisky are never disappointed. ‘Oysters Friskafella’ are a much recommended favorite (alas, not for me as although I might like them, they don’t like me!). For information on opening hours scroll to the bottom of the page or click here for a printable menu. For readers not familiar with the area or the location of the restaurant in Greenport, please visit the Home page of my website www.shorecrestbedandbreakfast.com and click on the area attractions tab in the navigation bar. There you will find maps for all local restaurants, including the Frisky Oyster as well as local wineries, vineyards and other places of interest. I look forward to hearing from you if you have any comments on my articles and to sharing more information on things to do and places to go on the North Fork. Meanwhile, enjoy your next meal at the Frisky, but save room for breakfast! I hope to welcome you the Shorecrest soon!
