Every aspect of life in Bridgehampton is refined and high-end – the stunning properties, incredible boutique selection, gorgeous beaches, and, of course, the renowned culinary scene. As the community is heavily tied to the business and culture of New York City, Bridgehampton has its own collection of excellent restaurants. Let’s take a look at some of our favorites.

Almond Restaurant

Opened in 2001, Almond Restaurant has remained Bridgehampton’s top American and French bistro. The cafe is famous for offering a variety of delicious french entrees, including short rib flautas, duck confit salad, and steamed mussels. With its affordable prices and decidedly “Parisian” decor and theming, it’s one of the hottest spots for dinners and lunches for locals, tourists, and celebrities.

Almond Restaurant takes care to prepare their carefully curated menu with fresh, local produce and seafood. Apart from a long list of starters on the menu, you’ll also enjoy a fresh raw bar with oysters, scallops, lobsters, and more.

This Bridgehampton favorite also prioritizes convenience for its guests and takes reservations, offers delivery and takeout, a variety of vegan and vegetarian options, and more. A dinner at Almond Restaurant is perfect for a date night or for an evening out with the whole family.

Elaia Estiatorio

One of the latest editions in the Bridgehampton roster of outstanding restaurants is Elaia Estiatorio. Built in 2017 to give the celebrities and locals a taste of traditional Greek food with a Mediterranean ambiance, this romantic establishment brings the traditions, culture, and history of Greece to the Hamptons.

Elaia Estiatorio sets itself apart from similar restaurants with its different varieties of homemade spreads, including Fava, Htipiti, Tzatziki, Taramosalata, and Melitzanosalata. These flavorful spreads go brilliantly with any delectable choice from the menu, such as lamb chops, grilled octopus, and zucchini fritters. Elaia Estiatorio also goes the extra mile by offering traditional Greek products they use to prepare their dishes, such as olive oil, Greek honey, and more.

Topping Rose House has a unique and versatile menu catering to the discerning tastes of the locals and celebrities who prefer a refined ambiance to enjoy a culinary experience.

Delectable and popular choices include the Crispy Salmon Sushi, Tuna Tartare, and Colorado Lamb Chops.

The restaurant has been standing in the heart of Bridgehampton since 1842 – a remarkably long history for an American restaurant. After a comprehensive renovation in 2013, the hotel and restaurant established itself as one of the premier fine dining establishments in the Hamptons. Featuring an elegant and stately traditional exterior design with an immaculate white finish, Topping Rose House also holds the distinction of being an iconic piece of architecture in the area.
