08 Jun New Restaurants in the Hamptons
With Hello Sitter Hamptons launching soon, we’re beyond excited for summer in the East End. The beach, the surf, the vibes, and, of course, the food. New restaurants in the Hamptons are always a thrill and this year’s openings are particularly noteworthy, what with the news that Eleven Madison Park would move their whole 100-plus Manhattan team to a pop-up location for the summer. Here’s more on that and a few others to try this season (since you got a sitter and everything!).
Eleven Madison Park
While they undergo renovations at their NYC location, the three-Michelin star restaurant will create a more casual and “beachy” version in the old Moby’s East Hampton. One big difference: the menu will be a la carte, not prix fixe. They’re planning on a late June opening.
341 Pantigo Road, East Hampton
Wölffer Kitchen Amagansett
Not sure how Joey and Mark Wölffer found the time, what with running the boutiques, existing restaurant, and family vineyard, plus parenting their daughter, but they’ve managed to add another gorgeous restaurant, this one in Amagansett. The space looks light and clean and the menu is loaded with fresh and healthy options like seafood, tapas, salads, and veggie options, all “rosé friendly” (yaasss!).
4 Amagansett Square Drive, Amagansett
This new Thursday-to-Sunday destination has a fresh, modern vacation vibe courtesy of interior experts Curious Yellow Design. The celeb-chef owners promise locally sourced farm to table brunch and dinner before turning into “after dark groovy beats” (count us in!).
44 Three Mile Harbor Road, East Hampton
Cove Hollow Tavern
The duo behind Vine Street Cafe, Shelter Island’s fine dining institution and food truck, just opened this East Hampton restaurant and bar. Dine in or take something from the French and new American menu with you.
85 Montauk Highway, East Hampton
Le Bilboquet Sag Harbor
Will this is the year for a Hamptons outpost of the NYC (and Atlanta, and Dallas) French restaurant Le Bilboquet? After failing to secure real estate last year, rumor has it that Le Bilboquet will anchor the Sag Harbor waterfront, in the old B. Smith’s location. If it happens, head here (after fasting all day) for a big celebratory meal.

Lulu Kitchen & Bar
A wood-fired menu focused on local ingredients, a open kitchen, and gorgeous dining room comprised of leather banquettes and wood tabletops are just a few of the reasons we have Lulu (pictured here) on the top of our to-try list. The other reasons: the raw bar, late-night drinks, and Sunday brunch. Photo by Eric Striffler.
126 Main St, Sag Harbor
This new waterfront restaurant comes from Eric Miller of East Hampton’s popular Bay Kitchen Bar. The New York Times reports it will feature a menu focused on “seafood with global touches.” Look for dinner to be served Wednesday through Sunday.
466 West Lake Dr, Montauk
