On December 8, Simon Critchell, co-founder of Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton, once again offered The Barn and The Studio, for the fourth annual Holiday Dinner, benefiting Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center. Guests enjoyed “three courses of perfection” created by Chef Jean-Georges, who took breaks from his kitchen duties to meet the supporters of the Center. The menu included Poppy Seed Sesame Crusted Faroe Island Salmon, Mushroom infusion with finger limes, Seared Wagyu Beef Tenderloin, and more. The dinner was sponsored by JP Morgan Chase.
There will be a dedication ceremony for a new roadside marker outside the Amagansett Life-Saving and Coast Guard Station on Saturday, May 25, at 10 AM. The marker, which was funded by a grant from the William G. Pomeroy Foundation, commemorates the interception of a group of four Nazi saboteurs by Coast Guard personnel at the station in June 1942. A plaque designating the station’s placement on the National Register of Historic Places, which happened in 2018, will also be installed. The ceremony will take place outdoors in front of the station, and all are welcome to attend. Visit www.amagansettlss.org for more information.
