The eternally popular Harvest on Fort Pond is the perfect Hamptons restaurant to spend a summer evening in Montauk. With a choice between inside or outdoor seating in its magnificent flower and herb garden, the menu offers delicious family-style Mediterranean cuisine under the direction of executive chef Jake Williams. The restaurant’s idyllic position on Fort Pond allows guests to enjoy the gorgeous sunsets that light up the sky.
You can tell a lot about a restaurant by the bread it serves, and the sourdough bread with cheese they put on the table is a huge crowd pleaser. Menu highlights include fresh burrata, grilled pizzas, mussels, rigatoni with veal Bolognese, penne with sautéed asparagus and mascarpone cheese, skirt steak, pork tenderloin, and free-range chicken. Dessert options include creme puffs stuffed with gelato and tiramisu. The restaurant accepts reservations one week in advance. After dinner, it’s always fun to take a walk down the dock to visit the resident swans, large fish, and swimming muskrats.
