Guide to The Hamptons Summer Dining 2016
For those who frequent the Hamptons each summer, you will be aware that there are always new and exciting restaurants popping up, whether it is in the form of the expansion of your favourite city restaurant making its way to the beach shores or a new takeover from a classic site. These annual surprises rejuvenate the Hamptons dining scene, and of course spoil us for choice when it comes to summer hot spots. Here are some of the latest additions that we are most excited about for summer 2016.
What once was the staple home of Ciao by the Beach, is now Montauk’s new restaurant Arbor. This new Mediterranean addition to the town is located just around the corner from the renowned Surf Lodge. Arbor’s managing director, Steven Jauffrineau describes the establishment as “casual, chic and fun”, making it a perfect addition to the laid back and stylish surf town. The menu features adventurous plates such as Lox Pizza, Cucumber and Watermelon Salad and what is now the most popular dish, their Surf & Turf, which includes New Zealand lamp chops.

Seafood lovers will be happy to hear that New York’s Grey Lady has opened a sister restaurant in Montauk under the same name. Originally established in Nantucket, the restaurant also has restaurants in Manhattan, Aspen, and now of course, Montauk. The décor in each of the restaurants perfectly reflects the town or area in which it is located. Diners are welcomed to enjoy casual seafood dishes surrounded by beach blue and white striped furniture, with hanging pictures of beaches on the walls.

Topping Rose House Restaurant
Topping Rose House is a beautiful, luxurious guest house located in Bridgehampton. Earlier this year none other than Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten began working with the property and consulting for their on-site restaurant. The ingredients used in all of the seasonally driven dishes are grown on the one acre farm located on the property, with additional produce sourced from the local farmers and fishermen of the Hamptons. The restaurant has revamped its interior to reflect a more casual, beach feel as opposed to the more stiff white cloth former setting.

From the brains behind the Mulberry Project and the Greenwich Project in Manhattan comes The Greenwich, located in Watermill. The space was formerly home to the restaurant ‘Red Stixs’, which has been entirely redesigned and has a similar quirky and sleek feel to the design as its sister counterparts in the City. The New American menu, being heavily seasonal dependent on its ingredients features summer dishes such as Watermelon Salad and Rack of Lamb.
