Gilt City Takes the Hamptons

I was recently invited to attend a series of events at the Gilt City Hamptons House.  Gilt City partnered with several well known chefs and restaurateurs for a series of exclusive dinners and brunches at a private estate in Bridgehampton.  It was nothing short of fabulous.  Good food, good drinks, and good company, in a majestic east end setting, what more could we ask for?? Sorry for the onslaught of photos, unfortunately they don't even do these events justice.  Until next year.....

First-Brunch hosted by Sam Talbot of Imperial #9 and Surf Lodge-or Top Chef if you go way back
I've loved Sam Talbot since his season on Top Chef-he did not dissapoint!
Cheers!
I've never been a grits fan-heirloom hominy grits from south carolina changed all that
getting artistic
Backyard Fun
Brunch with Sam Talbot turned into a pool party with margaritas and poolside frozen grapes, life is good!
What I wouldn't give for a backyard to entertain in like this!
Next up-an intimate evening with Dan Kluger of ABC Kitchen.  Cocktails on the lawn followed by a mind-blowing meal.  The perfect way to begin labor day weekend in the hamptons!


Itty bitty moon and a pink sky

Ready for the meal of a lifetime
Strawberry and goat cheese salad
Spaghetti with shrimp
 Main course was a choice of fried chicken, braised pork belly, and halibut.  I had the pork belly, but was so enthralled I didn't have a chance to snap a pic!
Donuts-and these are no Dunkin' variety
Strawberry tart, never had anything like it






And finally, a Sunday supper with the Scotto family.  Sunday Italian dinner in all its red-sauce glory.  Marion is a gem-and I was honored to tell her that I spent my first Christmas Eve dinner in New York at her restaurant in the 7th grade, I knew from that trip that this was the place for me.
Beautiful table, and prosciutto wrapped breadsticks-I die!
Marion Scotto of Fresco by Scotto
Gorgonzola zucchini and potato chips-unreal!


Still having dreams about this pasta
Nothin' like a good ball!
Key Lime Meringue-enough said
Stuffed and ready to drive back to the city
