A casual spot with unfussy food and lively drinks suits a day this deep into summer. Here are three taverns that cook and pour with equal ease.
The Springs Tavern in East Hampton is at an address that used to be a hangout for Abstract Expressionists a few decades ago. It's a spirited destination once more. Recommended: pulled pork sliders, Baja fish tacos filled with cod, New England-style clam chowder, the wedge salad, fried calamari, macaroni and cheese, fish and chips, lobster salad roll, Key lime pie. Moderate.
