New Eats in East Hampton
September 4, 2018 | Daily Bite
Fresno is one of East Hampton's best kept secrets.
Located just outside of East Hampton Village, veteran restaurateurs David Loewenberg and Michael Nolan teamed up to open the restaurant in the spring of 2004 – and the rest is history. The menu emphasizes simple yet sophisticated preparations of local fare.
The ambiance is pleasant and inviting. The space is airy with a sky lit room featuring a French door overlooking a landscaped patio for al fresco dining in the warmer months. Fresno is known for its New American menu crafted by Executive Chef Gretchen Menser, and most recently, she’s revamped the menu with a tantalizing new selection. Consider the following:
Charred Spanish Octopus $19
Edamame puree, French breakfast radish and Yuzu vinaigrette
Green Garbanzo and Jalapeno-Lime Hummus $15
Grilled flatbread and marinated olives
Watermelon Salad $18
Feta, cucumber, Upland cress, toasted-almonds and oregano vinaigrette
Jumbo lump crab, chervil, crème fraiche, toasted bread crumbs and black tobiko caviar
Black Bean Falafel $26
Jicama, red onion, romaine, warm pita, chipotle vinaigrette and coconut sauce
Grilled Duroc Pork Chop
Balsam Farm rainbow Swiss chard, Yukon gold-bacon potato salad and peach mostarda
The restaurant is open daily beginning at 5:30 p.m. For reservations, call the restaurant directly at 631-324-8700.
