Spring in the Hamptons means warm air, daffodils, and of course a crop of new restaurants. The latest is Bay Kitchen Bar, set to open Memorial Day weekend in the former Andrra space. The latest venture from chef/owner Eric Miller (of Food & Co and Miller's BBQ fame) and co-owner Richard Silver. The restaurant will offer fab waterviews, indoor/outdoor seating, marina access for boaters, and of course great food. Eric Miller will rely on his relationships with local fishermen and baymen to source the best possible quality ingredients.<br /><br />Sample menu items include a raw bar menu with local littleneck clams and dishes such as Dayboat sea scallops with sweet pea risotto and roasted pepper vinaigrette or spit-roasted Long Island duck. A series of public special events is in the works, including clambakes, barbeques and whole animal roasts in Miller's BBQ smoker. We can't wait to check it out this summer.

Nestled between the Theater District and Times Square, Appetito Ristorante has been serving refined Italian cuisine for 23 years. Appetito's comfortable ambiance and private skylight room make it a favorite. From exquisite ambiance to traditional Italian cuisine, Appetito Ristorante is a must for those who demand excellence.

“Loi will offer an original twist to Greek dining for brunch, lunch, cocktails and dinner,” says Maria Loi, who was recently appointed the International Ambassador of Greek Gastronomy for the renowned Chef’s Club of Greece. “The restaurant will share many of the Loi family recipes to traditional Greek dining, which have been passed down from my great grandmother. Loi is about real food, cooked with Greek olive oil and using authentic and fresh ingredients. It is about healthy and delicious dining that brings family and friends together.”

Located on the 4th floor of the Time Warner Center (10 Columbus Circle) Stone Rose Lounge – named for the touches of stone and rosewood used throughout its design – is the epitome of masculine elegance. Created to echo the posh atmosphere of a classically timeless hotel lounge, the 5,000 sq. ft. venue features candlelit seating areas surrounded by gorgeous views of Manhattan’s Central Park and the city’s skyline.

Food menus from Benchmarc Events by Marc Murphy are available seven days a week for lunch and dinner and feature favorites such as Tuna Tartar Tacos, Kale Caesar, Grilled Cheese with Gruyere & Parmesan and The “Stone Rose” Burger.

Caffe Grazie is a lively cafe, located steps from Madison Avenue and Central Park, serving sumptuous Italian cuisine in a two floor townhouse setting. Perfect for dinner with friends and family, or a quick lunch after a visit to the nearby Metropolitan Museum.

With its deep red walls and skylight dining room, Pasha is one of the best Turkish restaurants in North America. Anyone who wants to take a "magical carpet ride" to Istanbul in a very elegant and comfortable ambience and warm and friendly service should visit Pasha.
