It's no coincidence Kissaki has become one of the most popular sushi spots in the Hamptons. Kissaki's omakase experience is deeply rooted in Japanese culinary tradition and serves to showcase seasonal ingredients at the pinnacle of their freshness in a simple but utterly-artistic fashion. The menu here impresses with thoughtful and delicious pairings such as kombu-cured Kanpachi with fuyu puree and chrysanthemum oil, traditional chawanmushi with toro tartare and simmered shiitake, and onion-braised pork belly over spinach gomae, apple puree, and sesame paste. Besides its creative approach, the high quality fish keeps customers coming back. The 16-Course Counter Omakase is a must-try experience. Three appetizers followed by a twelve course extravaganza of specialty nigiri topped with a dessert option is an unforgetable adventure. The specialty rolls are also killer and make for a great delivery option. Those with a footprint in Connecticut will delight in knowing that Kissaki has just opened a location in Greenwich.

Sen Sag Harbor

23 Main St, Sag Harbor / Website

Sen is an institution, and this crispy rice is in a league of its own. The restaurant boasts more than 25 years of experience in the sushi world, and that expertise shines through in the dining experience. A recent renovation pushed the atmosphere to even greater heights, while the robust menu and ample sake options keep you entertained for nights on end. Make sure you give your name to the hostess early, because this sushi hotspot does not take reservations, and it's known to be busy.

Bridgehampton is home to many things, but its most valuable player might be Yama Q. Due to the pandemic, its in-house dining option is temporarily closed, but its takeout game is stronger than ever. Yama Q makes it way too easy to get your rolls on the go. Simply text (631) 848–7712, and your order will be ready in no time. The takeout menu is close to perfection, offering everything from rolls to stir fries, so even non-sushi lovers will find something to enjoy. Take it from frequent Yama Q-ers Jimmy Fallon and Scarlett Johanson, this sushi is simply next level.

Bamboo

76C Jobs Ln, Southampton / Website

New on the Southampton scene but more experienced than many, Bamboo has become one of the hottest sushi destinations in less than a year. The menu is truly the star. We recommend starting with some teriyaki chicken lettuce cups, adding some crazy dumplings in the middle, and finishing off with a signature Bamboo roll. Don't just take our word for it - or the word of everyone raving on the street. Come through for dine-in or pick-up Tuesday through Sunday, and feel the real Bamboo experience.
