It looks like another celebrity chef may be taking over the restaurant at Topping Rose House, which Tom Colicchio opened in 2012 and left in 2014. Jean-Georges Vongerichten recently toured the historic Bridgehampton property and its one-acre farm and did a tasting, according to hotel insiders, who confirmed that they are negotiating to work out a deal with the uber chef. A restaurant source at the hotel said that the current chef, Drew Hyatt, would likely stay on as chef de cuisine. Vongerichten would only say, "it's a rumor.''
