Tucked away in Water Mill is a world-class sushi and omakase traditional Japanese restaurant. It's hard to remember where you are after sitting down in their transformed outdoor terrace. Kissaki strives to honor traditional Japanese cuisine and does so throughout their various locations in the Hamptons and New York City
(Bowery, Midtown and Columbus). While locals and visitors alike are beginning to venture out to outdoor seating, Kissaki is a must-experience restaurant in the Hamptons.
Kiassaki's menu is expansive and designed to get diners a true taste of the very best traditional Japanese cuisine under the leadership of Executive Chef Mark Garcia. If you're unsure of what to order, consider Omakase which is Chef's choice. Additionally, Kissaki offers Futomaki (fat sushi rolls), Donburi (sushi rice bowls), nigiri (individual pieces of sushi), and maki (traditional six-piece rolls). Whether you've come hungry or decide to eat light, Kissaki has something for everyone. One of their most ordered appetizers is their brussels sprouts. Definitely don't forget to leave room for dessert. They have everything from classic matcha red bean cake to black tea boba to black sesame yuzu.

We are extremely happy to announce that we will be serving our amazing cuisine year round! Kissaki is also expanding our operations at the Water Mill Square location for the season of 2021.
