Chef-owner Joseph Miller (Daniel) channels his youth in Oyster Bay, L.I., with this Hamptons-inspired seafood spot. The 16-seat restaurant nods to the oceanside summer destination with rattan chairs and cream-and-coral painted walls. Get simple fare, like crab cakes with spicy rémoulade and a Long Island–style lobster roll—the crustacean is poached in butter, dressed lightly in mayo and chives, and stuffed in a toasted potato bun.
