In the past week celebs including Joe Biden, Paris Hilton, Alec Baldwin, Kim Kardasian, super model Jessica White and many more have dined and danced there. 75 Main has been featured in all the New York papers and on an upcoming broadcast of News Channel 12 as THE place to be.
I had to check it out for myself, so I did last night. The thing is, though, when it comes to Hamptons’ happenin’ restaurants, all I’m really interested in is the FOOD.
75 Main has a new chef in Walter Hinds. Hinds has worked his magic in Paris and New York and now he’s cast his spell in the otherwise staid, old-monied Southampton Village. The food is a welcome departure from the more standard fare of the past.
My party very much enjoyed a meal of roast littleneck clams, tilapia, Moroccan Spice rack of lamb (just added to the menu on Sunday) and Chocolate Lava Cake. Also, a palate cleanser of water melon, bleu cheese and balsamic vinegar was sublime.
Erdem has been building up a seriously fun scene by bringing in international D.J. s and live music every weekend, open ’til 4 a.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays but…possibly…it’s Hinds’ able hand in the kitchen that had people lined up down the block on a SUNDAY!
Check it out for yourself and read a full review of my meal at 75 Main in the June 24 edition of Dan’s Papers, online June 24.
Did I mention the young, fun and funky international staff? Love it.
