Estia's Little Kitchen Restaurant Review: This roadside maisonette sits deep in the woods between Sag Harbor and Bridgehampton. Its dependable, creative comfort food is prepared by chef-owner Colin Ambrose from locally grown fruits and vegetables and, often, Long Island meats and seafood. Wooden fish and utensils on the walls accent the country feel. Breakfast fare ranges from plump, airy french toast or buttermilk pancakes dripping with sticky syrup to Nachos Mamma’s, with jalapeño, jack cheese, tomato and onion. At lunch, Hamptons denizens enjoy the chili chicken taco salad, the thick BLT, or pot-bellied burger. Candlelight and white tablecloths bring a romantic vibe at dinner. Choose from a variety of entrées like local potato-crusted flounder, an intense and bountiful seafood paella or crispy roasted chicken served with mashed potatoes. Desserts include buñuelos with ice cream as well as a decent carrot cake. The wine list features a good number of Long Island bottles and a few options by the glass.
