Best on South Fork

I stopped writing letters because I got tired of reading the negativity in all of them, including mine.

May I ask you to print this first in the series (I hope) of positive restaurant reviews I am about to write for our wonderful Southampton restaurants. I have no expertise in restaurant reviews, with the exception of the following: I have attended numerous culinary institutes for cooking lessons, Italy for private cooking lessons, and cooking has been my hobby for over 60 years while cooking at home or at many other homes. My brother and I have participated in food-related charity cooking competitions, including “Men Who Cook” in the Wall Street area.

My first review is the Southampton Publick House in Southampton Village. The only thing missing at the Publick House is the original wood-burning fireplace. The wines are wonderful and very reasonable.

Their fish must be caught after you order it, because it’s that fresh. Beef, pork and veggies all satisfy the three “P”s: presentation, preparation and price. Save room for pie.

Southampton needs more restaurants, but we do now have some of the best on the South Fork.
