Ever since its 2011 opening, East Hampton Grill has become a local favorite – even though it’s not really “Hamptony”. Perhaps because it’s one of the few legit Hamptons dining spots open year round that’s consistently buzzing.
East Hampton Grill is – a grill(!) – with the standard American comfort food menu. You’ll find the expected oysters, tuna tartares, burgers and steaks – but not in a (too) boring way. The food at East Hampton Grill is hearty and delicious, with something for everyone. Most dishes are rich and portions are huge, so unless you’re focusing on their raw bar, East Hampton Grill isn’t the best spot for the bikini diet.
If you’re looking for a beachy summer atmosphere, this isn’t the spot. East Hampton Grill has more of a New York vibe, with a warm, wood-accented decor and dark lighting overlooking an open kitchen, and more upscale (older?) crowd. That’s why I usually prefer East Hampton Grill off-season or on a rainy night.
