The team behind EHP Resort & Marina and Sí Sí today announces it will bring three new eateries and other new experiences to all corners of the Hamptons this season. Each restaurant will offer unique cuisine and experiences but share a common ethos that is defined by spaces for both locals and visitors to enjoy exquisite food in beautiful, convivial locations with incredible service and unbeatable views. Fresh, seasonal fare at Sunset Harbor will add to the current dining scene at EHP Resort & Marina in East Hampton this summer, while Crash Cantina at The Inn Spot will create a new reason to visit Hampton Bays for vibrant Latin American food. Enchanté will arrive this season in Southampton as a modern French-inspired bistro. In addition to these new restaurants, EHP’s buzzy Mediterranean waterfront restaurant Sí Sí and Italian-style bakery Buongiorno, which also has a location in Montauk, are now open for the season and offering dock and dine options for the yachting community. The entrepreneurial team is bringing newfound life to historic locations in a way that maintains their integrity yet modernizes for today’s Hamptons locals and travelers, anchoring the next generation of the waterfront destination’s culinary scene.
Endless Summers at Sunset Harbor in East Hampton (opening Summer 2022)
Stemming from the popularity of its first restaurant Sí Sí, EHP Resort & Marina will add another dining destination to its East Hampton compound with the debut of Sunset Harbor, opening in time for Memorial Day Weekend. Inspired by the colorful social scene of the Hamptons, Sunset Harbor will be a lively destination that invites diners to connect with each other and its waterfront setting over family-style plates, creative cocktails and over-the-top desserts, all designed to be shared. The menu ranges from leafy local salads and verdant vegetables to handcrafted pasta and fresh seafood. Signatures include Shrimp Scampi topped with fresh crab and lemon butter, Mussel Cazuela with coconut broth, leeks and chorizo and Seafood Fra Diavolo with squid ink rigatoni and Calabrian chili. A menu of sushi and nigiri will highlight local tuna and other fresh fish.
Overlooking Three Mile Harbor with undisturbed sunset views, the design of Sunset Harbor will allude to an endless summer, with organic textures, sun-bleached woodworking and neutral colors enhanced by decorative pieces from Morocco and Greece. Additionally, a lively ambiance and friendly hospitality will transport diners to the well-lived, free-spirited life of summers spent on the Mediterranean Sea.
Introducing Crash Cantina at Inn Spot in Hampton Bays (opening May 2022)
A first-of-its-kind destination in Hampton Bays, Inn Spot is a collection of newly renovated waterfront bungalows welcoming travelers to a chic and breezy setting on Shinnecock Bay just steps from Ponquogue Beach. Channeling the laid-back spirit of coastal destinations like Santa Teresa or Puerto Escondido, the standalone accommodations encompass studios and suites with patios, kitchenettes, Brooklinen bedding and surf-inspired décor.
Inn Spot’s brand-new open-air restaurant and cultural destination, Crash Cantina, features an eclectic indoor dining room and expansive outdoor patio overlooking the bay. With a name inspired by the idea of innovation crashing into tradition, the Latin American-inspired menu is predominantly seafood-focused with dishes like Montauk Fluke Ceviche, Local Oysters with mango and passion fruit mignonette and Bloody Mary cocktail sauce, Duck Confit Sopes with salsa verde. An assortment of non-traditional tacos, salads and bowls will be available with Smoked Mushroom Carnitas, Crispy Local Fish with corn and daikon slaw, Apple Cider Smoked Chicken with mole verde. The cocktail menu has an impressive list of mezcal and tequila to be enjoyed on their own or in housemade margaritas like mango, passionfruit, tamarind, pineapple and hibiscus.
By design, a palette of soft greys allows the views to paint the picture, and visitors to enjoy the ever-changing colors of the water and sky as the sun moves across the Shinnecock Bay and sets in perfect view. Furthermore, furniture pieces at both the inn and restaurant are textural, while décor is layered for an aesthetic that exudes an artist’s tropical escape.
See and Be Seen in Southampton at Enchanté (opening Summer 2022)
Southampton’s historic Red Bar is being reimagined as Enchanté, a modern French-inspired bistro set in an airy glass-enclosed space with an adjacent outdoor patio. Combining the rich cinematic experiences of both Parisian brasseries and seaside dining in the South of France, the revived restaurant will debut with a timeless, romantic design. Signature items include a fresh Seafood Plateaux, French classics like French Onion Soup and Escargot, Nicoise and Roquette Salads and a selection of Frites such as lobster or dry-aged duck.
Enchanté, which is the French translation for “enchanted to meet you,” will be the place to see and be seen this summer. HLC Creative Group, which led design for all new outlets, has animated a sense of nostalgia through a color palette of taupes, greys and pops of citrus orange, textured natural linens mixed with silk velvets, and silver and brass accents from mid-century France. A semi-private dining room will play host to celebratory moments.
