Pretty much everyone here on the East End has a particular place they like to go for a particular food item. Be it bagels, pizza, donuts, sandwiches, pies — whatever the item is South Forkers will travel to get it. But wouldn’t it be a true thing of beauty if all these highly coveted items were available in one location, ready and willing to combat your cravings but without the hassle of travel? Look no further than Hampton Eats, a food court style business that opened this past Labor Day on North Main Street in East Hampton offering products from some of the Hamptons’ most beloved eateries.
“The concept is to have as much as we can in one place, so locals don’t have to go to Southampton or Montauk or Riverhead for the things they like,” says Ibrahim Hakim, manager at Hampton Eats and owner Rashid Sulehri’s nephew. Uniting products from the plethora of local businesses he owns across the South Fork, paired with beloved products from well-known eateries, Sulehri wanted to create “a one-stop shop for Hamptons favorites at year-round, affordable prices.”
Patrons can expect items from Hampton Coffee, Westhampton Beach Bakery, Montauk Bake Shoppe, Villa Italian Specialties, Eli’s Bagels, Stuart’s Seafood Market, Paul’s Pizza, and Bagel Place Café.
Products available run the gamut from freshly squeezed juices and boba tea to bagels and freshly made salads, to pizza and sandwiches. Open seven days a week, from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., Sulehri says they will have specialty pies, cookie platters, cakes and Turkish-style treats for the holiday season, noting all cakes and pastries are made onsite, with some items being made at Beach Bakery and Montauk Bake Shoppe.
Recently, Hampton Eats started serving pizzas hand-made in house. According to a press release from last week, full pies are either 10-inch or 18-inch with prices ranging from $10.99 to $26.99. Cheese pizza slices clock in at $3.50 each and specialty slices cost $4.99. With well over a dozen toppings available, they’ll also be offering gluten free cauliflower pizzas plus garlic knots and stromboli.
“This is going to give new life to this side of the town,” Sulehri says. “Customers do not have to travel to Montauk to get the famous raspberry donuts, croissants and fresh cakes.”
