Newsday’s reviewers head Out East this week. Joan Reminick visits Highway Diner & Bar in Wainscott, which meets diner criteria — breakfast all day at counter, table or booth — but veers from the cliche. “The pared-down menu looks nothing like the encyclopedic tomes at so many Long Island diners,” she writes. “Also atypical is an evening bar scene, and the airy, elegant look of the place, washed in pale shades of sea and sand.”

Lauren Chattman reviews The Cuddy, which replaces Phao on Main Street in Sag Harbor, a gastropub with an East End spin. “With its casual, flexible and not-too-expensive (by Hamptons standards) menu,” she writes, it “already has attracted substantial summer crowds.”
