We found my dream diner en route to water mill N.Y., which was not only open on thanksgiving day but packed with diners. For good reason. After much deliberation I ordered a tuna melt off of the encyclopedic menu, which was excellent.
A day later we took a break from eating and visited the Parrish museum which I have wanted to visit since its dramatic new building opened in a few years ago. It’s an interesting building inside and a cook collection of work, much of it by artists who work or worked around here. I particularly liked The Fairfield Porter “raw” paintings.
