The Hamptons have seen its share of trendy restaurants come and then vanish the very next season.  But what we love most about eating and drinking on the East End are the places that have been around for decades. Dog-ear our list of old-school hangouts and you will truly feel like you’ve been spending summer at the beach for decades.

Silver’s Famous Restaurant
15 Main Street, Southampton, N.Y. 11968
631.283.6443

Opened in 1923 as a tobacco and newspaper shop (that sold The New York Times for a nickel more than the cover price, enraging thrifty WASPs from Manhattan), Silver’s started serving lunch in 1967. It has since morphed into a pricey gourmet restaurant currently helmed by Garrett Wellins, whose grandfather was the original chef.
