Drink & Food in Greenport, NY
Vineyards that are bursting with grapes
Red, white or bubbles? It doesn’t matter with all the wineries on the Long Island! According to the Long Island Convention & Visitors Bureau, there are currently more than 90 combined vineyards and wineries on the Island.
Beer lovers find flavor on tap
While the North Fork is better known as a robust wine region full of award-winning vineyards, it is also home to dozens of craft breweries, cideries and distilleries offering beer and sipping options.
Pack a growler and head to Eastern Front Brewing Co. in Mattituck. This dog-friendly craft brewery was founded in 2015 and produces traditionally inspired brews!
Jamesport Farm Brewery offers farm-to-pint beer and cider made with ingredients grown on site using local hops, wheat, and barley. The 43-acreage farmland of Jamesport Farm Brewery was once a potato farm and is the perfect backdrop for parties and special events.
Meals that make your mouth water
Peconic Landing members Pat and Dennis Bischoff are fans of Erik’s in Southold. This bright, cozy daytime café offers egg sandwiches, burgers and fried seafood with indoor and outdoor seating. They also like Legends, where guests can move between an adjoined upscale American restaurant and a casual sports bar with 200+ beers.
Anker, a local, seasonal American seafood restaurant and market located in the heart of Greenport, highlights the best of North Fork farms and fisheries. The menu changes to reflect the day's catch and weekly harvest. Diners are greeted with beautiful views of the Peconic Bay from the upstairs covered deck.
Food is truly farm-to-table
On Long Island, farm stands line the roads and make it easy to stop and savor in-season peaches, tomatoes, berries, apples and more. Some of the stands are situated on Suffolk County farms that let you pick your own produce. You’ll also find Long Island farm stands selling fresh produce in the many farmers markets in the area like the Greenport Farmers’ Market, the only multi-vendor cooperative local market on the North Fork.
The Bichoff’s like Sep’s Farm Stand in East Marion on the North Fork. They work with other local vendors to create one-stop farm-to-table grocery shopping! They also enjoy Sang Lee, a farmstand selling organic produce as well as items from local artisans and producers. “Sang Lee is very close to Peconic Landing,” Pat explained. “We like it because we can eat there or bring the food home.”
