KDHamptons Feast End: Fabulous Fresh Opens in Bridgehampton!
Big news for Hamptons farm-to-table scenesters: Fresh will open at the site of the former Southfork Kitchen in mid-May courtesy of chef Todd Jacobs. Jacobs, who earned kudos as the chef at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor in the mid-90s and critical acclaim in Westhampton Beach at Tierra Mar, returns to the Hamptons with a “fresh” concept that is family-friendly, affordable and accessible.
KDHamptons intern, Lily Kot, and I were invited for a preview tasting at Fresh recently and we loved every bite! The ordering concept is really great: everything on the menu can be ordered according to different portion/price so if you aren’t really hungry or are on a budget, you can plot out your dining experience accordingly. I think the idea of being able to order the same high quality entree at a less expensive price because it is a smaller portion is such an amazing idea~ Kudos to Todd and his team!
The menu is derived from natural ingredients and also includes organic, raw, gluten-free and vegetarian/vegan options. Dishes range from salads, entrées, sides and desserts with many available in small plates, regular, and family-style portions.
Our favorite appetizer was the RAW “Fresh” Summer Roll with julienned hearts of romaine, beets, carrots, avocado, peppers, scallions, asparagus & local dried tomatoes wrapped in collard green leaf with tomato chipotle vegan aioli [below].
Appetizers, such as “kim chee” pickled savoy cabbage, baby bok choy, carrots, and wild arugula will range in price from $6 to $12. Entrées such as Tandori spiced oven roasted chicken with pan juices and green cardamom will be available in three different sizes (1/4, 1/2 and whole); and hemp flour crusted local jumbo fluke filet with organic carrot butter, ginger and lemongrass range in price from $20 to $30. A bar menu will serve late. Food will be available for take-away as well.
There will also be a full bar and juice bar, Fresh will be open for lunch Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and for Saturday and Sunday brunch from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dinner is served Sunday through Thursday from 5 to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5 to 11 p.m. The restaurant is wheelchair accessible. No reservations will be taken.
