The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

So, it looks and feels like late fall instead of early spring.

And did you get your taxes filed on time?

Before these facts start you ranting about TV meteorologists or the Alternative Minimum Tax, know that Harbor Bistro, the waterfront restaurant in East Hampton, is slated to open on Thursday, at 5 p.m. to be exact.

Chef Damien O'Donnell's New American kitchen sometimes seems under the radar in mondo Hamptons. But it shouldn't be and is worth visiting before Memorial Day as well as after.

Appetizers are in the $9 to $16 range; main courses, $23 to $36.

Try the lobster bisque or the kataifi-lobster bundle, the jerk-pork tenderloin with Montauk monkfish or the five-spice Long Island duck breast. On Easter Sunday, leg of lamb will be among the specials.

You'll feel like summer is near. Or that a refund is in the mail.
