Island Restaurant Review

: This is the sort of place where hip-meets-preppy in something like a year-round version of the Hamptons summer scene. But that doesn't take anything away from the food, which may include tuna carpaccio or smoked trout salad to start. Entrées range from saffron lasagna with spinach to crispy skate with spaghetti-squash cake. Dinner can be noisy, but why not linger over a late lunch and pretend you are on the Côte d'Azur?
