— Reservations went live today for the Eleven Madison Park Summer House (341 Pantigo Road), the Hamptons home for Will Guidara, Daniel Humm and the Eleven Madison Park crew as the NYC restaurant closes for renovations on June 9. Seats for the Hamptons outpost are available here, starting with dates for June 24 through July 15. Dinner spots are for Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and Friday to Sunday offers both lunch and dinner. Reservations for later dates in the summer will launch at the beginning of the month until EMP Summer House closes after Labor Day.
Before you book — provided you have an Amex card — know that reservations require a $25 non-refundable deposit per person. Prepaid fried chicken feasts cost $75 per person and are available for six to 12 people. Non-Amex holding diners can still go, but only if they walk in for a table outside and if they pay by cash.
— After a pop-up in a farmhouse last summer, husband-wife team Arie and Liz Pavlou have decided to open a permanent outpost of their restaurant Bistro Ete in The Mill Center at 760 Montauk Highway. Chef Arie Pavlou will be cooking up a menu with touches of both his Greek heritage and his Parisian training. Dishes like escargot, bass with champagne truffle sauce, and dry-aged steak will be on the menu. It’s expected to open some time after Easter.
— James Mallios of Midtown restaurant Amali is opening a restaurant called Calissa in the Hamptons this Memorial Day. The restaurant, located at 1020 Montauk Highway, is inspired by the Greek island Mykonos, which Mallios has been visiting for years.
Chef Dominic Rice, an alum of Narcissa and Jean-Georges, will serve a menu with dishes like cured pork, lobster bucatini, lamb tartare, and gnocchi with Long Island clams and garlic chips. It will have both small plates, larger ones, and a slew of dishes for two. The kitchen will remain open until 2 a.m. See the full menu below:
