Hamptons Standard: Kitchen, Market, and Bar has opened its doors in Hampton Bays. The new modern-American, farm-to-table culinary experience is located on West Montauk Highway. The venue, which was formerly the home of Friendly’s, was developed by Centro Trattoria and Bar owner and East End local Salvatore Biundo. The eatery aims to bring top-quality and affordable cuisine to the local community.
“Hamptons Standard is filling a void in the area — a place where people can get fresh, grab-and-go food,” said Biundo. “It is a clean, casual, modern-American restaurant that has something for everybody and is accessible on a daily basis. It’s something that’s going to impact the community on such a positive level by providing locals a spot where they can come with their friends and family have a good meal. I’m a big advocate of Hampton Bays, and I believe in its future.”
Hamptons Standard has a little bit of everything. You’ll find an all-day grab-and-go market with fresh, hot meals, a large salad bar, made-to-order menu items, and prepared dinners.
The market also features a coffee shop by For Five Coffee Roasters, for all of your espresso needs. For Five has locations in Manhattan, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
Highlights from For Five’s menu include the 24-hour oatmeal max with overnight oats, honey, caramelized walnuts, flax and chia seeds, cashew butter, and seasonal fruits, or the hazelnut blueberry pancakes, complete with edible blue sparkles. The avocado crush with watermelon radish, parsley, chives, basil seeds, nutritional yeast, and jammy egg is also a great choice.
The kitchen hosts a wood-burning grill, wood-burning oven, and wood-burning rotisserie. The spacious dining room has been designed thoughtfully and there’s also outdoor patio seating and a large bar area that serves craft beer and local wine on tap.
Highlights from the restaurant include hot potato chips with blue cheese-Brie béchamel, chives, and cracked black pepper and the Ricotta gnocchi with truffle cream, parsley, and black pepper. The oriental chicken salad is also phenomenal.
