Rosalind's Reviews
 
In 2001 Jason Weiner and Eric Lemonides opened Almond Restaurant offering reasonable prices, bold bistro fare and friendly service. The French bistro quickly became one of the top spots in the Hamptons for locals, celebrities and tourists. Chef Jason Weiner quickly established himself in the Hamptons as top toque and over the years has established a very strong commitment to using locally farmed products and local produce in order to support the local community. Fast-forward 10 years and the iconic Hamptons French bistro enters a new era in a new location in downtown Bridgehampton. Almond’s new home is a historic space with 100-year-old tin ceilings, hand carved bar, classic white subway tile and a splash of color with signature zebra wallpaper, from an eponymous Italian restaurant in Manhattan, Gino, which recently ended its 65-year tenure. The menu is comprised of many French bistro favorites such as traditional escargot, steamed black mussels and steak frites.

"The noise level is so loud that you have to scream to have the person next to you hear you and you have to keep saying "What" and everyone leaves the restaurant with sore throats. That's bad enough. But what's equally annoying is that the restaurant keeps changing the menu and adding unusual exotic dishes rather than ones that are appealing. The last two times I was there, the only 2 things that sounded appetizing were the hamburger and the chicken. For that I don't need to go to a restaurant."
