Tom Colicchio To Open New Restaurant In The Hamptons
The 19th century Greek Revival-style Bridgehampton mansion better known as Topping Rose House has undergone restoration and been remodeled into a 22-room luxury inn and spa. Best part: it’s food-themed. Top Chef head judge Tom Colicchio will head up the restaurant on the property, which will feature produce grown right on Topping Rose House’s acre of land.
The whole Bridgehamptons estate is meant to evoke a Southern plantation feel, which will presumably bleed into the food, as well. Seven rooms will open in August for booking, with the additional fifteen rooms becoming available later in 2012, which is just fine, because the inn/spa stays open year round. Personally, we’re huge fans of The Hamptons in the wintertime, dahling, when that noisy city crowd has retreated back to The Island.
Besides the restaurant, Topping Rose will also house a bar, and a barn is available for entertaining. Who doesn’t love entertaining in a barn?
