Chef’s Choice: Eat Like Eric Ripert
May 21, 2012 | East End Eats
I have had a house in the Hamptons since 1999 that I enjoy every summer, but also very often in the winter. The house is in the middle of the woods, in Noyac. When I cook at home and entertain, I always go to local stands like Halsey Farm (513 Deerfield Road, Water Mill). Over the years I have developed many friendships with restaurateurs and chefs. In no special order, here is a list of some of my favorite restaurants and what I like to order.
The shellfish platter at The American Hotel. 45 Main St., Sag Harbor, 725-3535
Halibut en papillote at Beacon Restaurant. 8 W. Water St., Sag Harbor 725-7088
