This pivotal summer event for foodies from the tri-state area celebrates the best restaurants and wineries from both the North and South Forks. Stemming from the overwhelming “sold-out” success of the 2011 Dan’s Taste of Two Forks, we are gearing up for the highly anticipated follow-up event which will be this summer’s hottest ticket. The big event takes place place on Saturday, July 14th from 6:30-10pm for VIP and 7:30-10pm for General admission in beautiful Sayre Park at 154 Snake Hollow Road in Bridgehampton, NY.
This delectable celebration falls on Bastille Day this year, and we are proud to have award-winning chef and French native Jean-Georges Vongerichten host the festivities with true French flare.
The legendary chef, author and restaurateur has been a frequent Hamptons visitor for many years, is known worldwide for his culinary and business prowess, and owns and operates three- and four-star restaurants in the United States (Jean Georges, The Mark Restaurant, Spice Market, Mercer Kitchen, Perry St., and JoJo), France (Market restaurant), Bahamas (Café Martinique, DUNE), Bora Bora (Lagoon) and Shanghai (Jean Georges Shanghai). “I am honored to host the 2nd annual Dan’s Taste of Two Forks,” says Jean-Georges. “It is always a pleasure to be amongst a group of gifted chefs and fine restaurants.”
The 2012 lineup of restaurants includes Georgica, 1770 House, Luce and Hawkins, Race Lane, Nick & Toni’s, Southampton Social Club, Cittanuova, and Southfork Kitchen, in addition to newcomers 75 Main, Amarelle, Beaumarchais East Hampton, Navy Beach, Rumba Rum Bar and Smokin’ Wolf BBQ & More, to name a few. New restaurants are being added daily with about 35 expected at the event in addition to myriad local wineries and purveyors, including the award-winning Southampton Publick House.
Joining Chef Jean-Georges in the fête will be Paris-trained apparel designer Nicole Miller, who has just been named Food Critic of Dan’s Papers sister publication The Daily Dan for the summer of 2012. “There are some amazing restaurants on the East End – with access to fresh produce and seafood the quality is always excellent,” Nicole explains. “It’s wonderful to celebrate with Dan’s Taste of Two Forks the talented and diverse chefs and vineyards on the East End.”
