Phillipe Chow, Stratis Mortogen and Hampton’s publisher Debra Halpert (photo: Rossa Cole)
Hampton’s Magazine held their annual pre-season kick-off party last Thursday night and everybody was there…including yours truly! Hampton’s Publisher Debra Halpert and Jason Binn who always know how to throw a good party, hosted this year’s event at the former Tsunami…. former Resort… former Kobe Beach Club…. now and probably getting it right …. the new PHILLIPE’S, as in Phillipe Chow of MISTER CHOW’S fame!! We can now do scenes from “Hurlyburly” in the Hamptons!!!
It should be interesting in how the jet-setters will be flocking to Three Mile Harbor in East Hampton. I used to live on that lovely little trek and there was no jetting on that street ever.. unless you count the occasionally lost private jet searching for the airport and instead rattling my little trailer with shingles! OK, I’m exaggerating a little.
Anyway, the new PHILLIPE’S will offer, charter helicopter service to the restaurant, a late night kitchen open to1 am normally and 2am on Friday and Saturday. That means the Hess station will no longer be the only late night grub in the Hamptons… SAY GOODBYE TO MICROWAVED BURRITOS with an unleaded chaser!!
So how was the food the other night at the party? Pretty awesome actually and such a welcome to the Hamptons after WEI FUN’S …way disgusting stuff. The beef satay’s were spicy and amazing… the spring rolls were crisp and light….. and the martini’s… well.. they made everything better! So take a shot, try it out but I suggest after this week calling ahead for reservations. Phillipe’s is located at 44 Three Mile Harbor Rd. at Oakview Highway, East Hampton… right past Della Famina and bare left. 631-907-0250 By the way thanks to Natalie L an Lisa B. Xo
