Who doesn't love a trip out to the Hamptons to be wined and dined at a fab new restaurant?! Every now an then living in the city you can get a little stir-crazy and need a break to relax and have some fresh air. Last weekend a few friends of mine & myself ventured out to Southampton to celebrate the grand opening of Delmonico’s of Southampton Est. 1837, with a special champagne brunch on Saturday, June 8, 2013.  Southampton Mayor Mark Epley welcomed Delmonico’s – the country’s first restaurant and birthplace of American favorites like Eggs Benedict, Baked Alaska and the Delmonico Steak – to New York’s first English settlement in a ceremonial ribbon cutting. In honor of the special occasion, Delmonico’s of Southampton also presented a donation to the African American Museum of the East End.

We arrived on the Hamptons Jitney welcomed by an array of classic antique cars and lemonade stand. We strutted down the red carpet as we entered the venue. Once inside, guests enjoyed tastings from the Delmonico's of Southampton Est. 1837 menu, like Crab Cake Eggs Benedict, Lobster Newburg, mini Baked Alaska Ice Cream Cones, and freshly shucked oysters from the raw bar. They paired delicious cocktails, bubbling champagnes and refreshing chilled wines served with all the tasty bites we sampled. The oysters were exquisite and so fresh. The craved meat was cooked perfectly and my favorite dish of the afternoon, the bacon wrapped scallops! I literally had to lean back in my chair because they were so unbelievable! I fully understand why their known for their baked Alaska; so good, especially on a hot sunny day.
