It had been awhile since Lynn and I had gone to the Stone Creek Inn in East Quogue. Our one and only visit there had been in the late winter/early spring for restaurant week 3 or 4 years ago. We had a memorable experience but had not been back since. Last week we were able to make a long overdue visit back there as the Stone Creek Inn participated in the always welcome Hamptons Restaurant Week.
For an appetizer, Lynn had a great Hudson Valley Duck Foie Gras which she thought was rich and creamy enough to pass for a particularly decadent dessert. I had a satisfying mini-slab of Steak Tartare crusted with shallots. Entrees were equally first rate Lynn having and myself having a succulent Rabbit Fricassee over creamy polenta. Lynn had an equally appetizing Roasted leg of lamb with a savory black garlic jus.
The wait staff was really attentive, but brisk and so competent as to almost be ninja-like swooping in with our food, clearing the table and picking up our check with great dexterity.
It was about time that Lynn and I re-discovered this place and we look forward to adding it to our "list" of frequented restaurants for the summer.
