Looking for a new spot to dine at this summer on the North Fork? The Independent has rounded up a list of eateries to choose from.
Waypoint Restaurant has opened on the water in the former home of Pepi’s just outside of Southold. The Italian-American eatery brings Sicilian flavor to a menu offering fresh pastas, steaks, chops, seafood, and farm-to-table produce. Nestled alongside the Port of Egypt, the restaurant offers indoor/outdoor seating, boats are welcome, and live music is provided regularly.
Wayside is open Sunday and Tuesday through Thursday from noon to 10 PM, and Friday and Saturday from noon to 11 PM. It is located at 400 Old Main Road, Southold. 631-765-6373.
The beginning of July marked the move of Jeni’s Main Street Bistro from its former central location in Southold town to an across-from-the-water location just outside of town in the former home of Six Three One. The eatery offers breakfasts, soups, salads, acai bowls, wraps, burgers, and sandwiches. Owner Jeni Raymond plans to eventually offer a dinner menu and to gain a liquor license.
Jeni’s is open seven days a week, from 7 AM to 3 PM Monday through Friday, and from 7 AM to 2:30 PM Saturday and Sunday. It is located at 62375 Main Road, Southold. 631-765-9610.
Locally Made Donuts
The North Fork Doughnut Co. opened its doors in Mattituck this summer and offers locally-made donuts, cold-brewed coffee, and donut ice cream sandwiches made with Magic Fountain ice cream. Unique gourmet donut flavors are fresh-made and include cereal (topped with Fruity Pebbles), maple bacon, chocolate pretzel, various cake flavors, and potato chip.
The NoFoDoCo is located at 13175 Main Road, Mattituck and is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9 AM to 5 PM; Friday and Sunday from 9 AM to 7 PM; and Saturday from 9 AM to 6 PM. 631-394-1684.

Kate’s Cheese Co., recently opened in Greenport, brings a marriage of fine cheeses and local wine and beer to Front Street.
