Cyril's Fish House
The after-beach crowd spills out of this sun-dappled bar situated on a long stretch of road in Amagansett with the Long Island Railroad running through its backyard. Reggae music blares as a legion of blenders grind eternally, mixing their legendary BBC’s (banana, Bailey’s, and cream) topped with rum floaters.
Drink to Get: BBC.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
After opening a modern Asian restaurant (<strong>Spring</strong>) and a vegetable-oriented place (<strong>Green Zebra</strong>), Shawn McClain is focusing on artisanal meats from steak to rabbit. At Custom House, near Millennium Park, he promotes interesting cuts (veal cheeks with marrow-slathered crostini), as well as creative takes on classic dishes (duck prosciutto with buffalo mozzarella).
We loved: Flatiron steak and vinegar-laced fries; smoked ocean trout with celery vinaigrette.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
