A Little Kitchen, A Lot of Friends

Trying to get a table at Estia’s Little Kitchen in Sag Harbor on most mornings often comes with a wait. Waiting at this little kitchen, however, entails sitting in a garden of local fruits and vegetables, while children explore blueberry bushes or learn to identify basil and green beans while parents sip hot coffee or tea. Once inside, diners feast on what chef and owner Colin Ambrose describes as classic American fare, from Estia’s blueberry pancakes to dishes like Robbie’s Gringo Hash and Isabel’s Request – wholly unique creations named for local residents who love them and who helped define Estia’s Little Kitchen since it was founded in 1998.

Home: Never Wanting to Leave Sag Harbor

I often wonder why it is that I’m forever teeter-tottering between wanting to travel the world and never wanting to leave home? My husband, man of few words, reminds me that it is because our ‘home’, Sag Harbor, is one of the most beautiful places in the world. One minute I’m at the top-ready to fly off to foreign lands; while the next minute, I don’t want to budge from under my electric throw blanket. However, after speaking with the Schiavonis, I realize I’m not the only one that feels that way.
