Ina Garten Can't Get Enough Of These 2 Hamptons Restaurants
Chef and host of "Barefoot Contessa" Ina Garten told The Wall Street Journal that she adores two Hamptons restaurants, Jean-Georges Restaurant and The 1770 House.
Named after French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the Jean-Georges Restaurant is nestled in Bridgehampton’s Topping Rose House Hotel, a mansion estate from the 1800s.
Jean-Georges offers sensible fare with a contemporary twist. The restaurant sources seasonal ingredients from local farms and fishermen and grows vegetables at the hotel’s farm.
Garten recommends sitting at the outdoor patio with communal-style farm tables to enjoy tasting menus or casual yet elegant offerings like Maine lobster and black truffle pizza.
Located near East Hampton Village, chef Michael Rozzi is at the helm of The 1770 House. The historic restaurant has been serving guests since 1770, hence the name.
While the downstairs tavern serves upscale pub food, the main dining room offers contemporary fine dining on its outdoor patio, surrounded by lush gardens and twinkling lights.
Guests can enjoy an ever-changing two-course prix fixe menu. Some offerings include local ingredients like razor clams, Montauk sea scallops, and Long Island duck breast.
