Famed chef, Tom Colicchio opened a new restaurant this weekend in the Hamptons. Topping Rose House brings his seasonal American cooking to a stunning location in Bridgehampton. The newly restored 1842 Greek mansion houses the eatery on the ground floor. The restaurant includes a 50-seat dining room, a wrap around porch and a 25-seat bar room, with leather barrel chairs and two original fireplaces. There is also a private event space in a barn next door.
In addition to the restaurant, a full-service inn is in the works, which will open in early 2013, featuring 22 guest rooms, wellness facilities and an outdoor pool. The restaurant's menu showcases produce from the inn's farm, along with products from local farmers, ranchers, and fisherman. Standouts from chef de cuisine Ty Kotz's menu include sweet corn agnolotti, roasted saddle of rabbit, and cornmeal streusel. The restaurant currently serves only dinner, but breakfast, lunch, and brunch are on the way. The bar features both domestic and international wines, along with seasonally inspired cocktails.
Dining room hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 5:30pm – 10pm
