Jeffrey Jah, one of the men behind Lotus and Lamb's Club and 1 Oak, is opening his first American outpost of the successful Brazilian brand Cafe de la Musique. The new restaurant/lounge will be located at 44 Three Mile Harbor Road in East Hampton, formerly the location of Philippe. Chef Cynthia Sestito, who worked privately for Jay Z and Sean Combs, will be executive chef at the Latin restaurant which will feature such dishes as spicy plantains with pao de queijo and chili mango sauce; and the tropical fish stew, moqueca. "As someone who has been coming to the Hamptons since I was a teenager, I always wanted to have a restaurant and lounge close to the beach,'' says Jah. "This is somewhere cool and creative where you can come in for a caparhinia or a light meal and just hang out.''
