Bay Burger’s Wedge Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing, Tomatoes And Red Onion.



         I frequently take part in surveys about where I eat and what I eat and when.  It goes with the territory when you write about food. Inevitably, there’s a question about how long ago I’ve visited a fast food restaurant.  I invariably answer “Never” because I gave up fast food over ten years ago.  That’s also when we ousted as much processed food from our diet as we possibly could.  While I am still not making my own Ketchup or Mayonnaise, I’ve been very successful in keeping things fresh around here.  Then how do I explain my attachment to Bay Burger, the Sag Harbor Hamburger Emporium at 1742 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike Sag Harbor, NY 11963 (Phone: 631.899.3915)?  In certain circles it would be classified as Fast Food faster than you can say McDonald’s.  But it isn’t. Not by a long shot.  For one thing, have you ever been to a McDonald’s that operates as a Farmer’s Market on Saturdays all winter?  Does your local McD’s have jazz nights every Thursday?  Does your fast food restaurant make its own ice cream with the fantastic tagline: “It’s from the Hamptons so you know it’s rich”?  And one summer they even made the most incredible ham sandwich. ( I do hope they bring that one back.) And how is the food there ?

Joe and Liza’s Fish Sandwich from Bay Burger, Sag Harbor NY.



Three years ago in May, Joe and Liza Tremblay and took over a roadside place in Sag Harbor, NY, that was called “Linda’s Famous Cheesecake”.  I had one friend who swore by Linda’s cheesecake but to be honest, I could never figure out when the place was open.  It was desolate most of the time.  Then Joe and Liza came along and opened “Bay Burger” at 1742 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike, (631-899-3915).  Joe is a former grillman at the Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridien in Manhattan, generally acknowledged to have one of the best burgers in the city.  Liza is a Culinary Institute of America graduate who makes the couple’s eponymous ice cream.  The slogan for the ice cream is “It’s from the Hamptons so you know it’s rich”.
