Hamptons Eats: Yummy Lobster Roll and Tiramisu
Last week my friend Helen and I went to 75 Main for Lunch and it was delightful. 75 Main was busy this summer and many celebrities were scene dining there all summer, I stayed away because I thought it was just a place to be scene, so I decided to wait until after Labor Day to dine there. I was happy I waited the service was great and my lunch was delicious but the dessert was AMAZING!!!

We started with an afternoon cocktail,because it was Friday and I have always known 75 Main to make really delicious drinks, they did not disappoint. I ordered a Watermelon Martini and it was delicious. A perfect drink that made me want another, you know the kind of drink where the alcohol sneaks up on you. I had only one since I was driving.DSC_7541
I was surprised that there were no specials on the menu for lunch, but that is because it was a brunch menu. There were no starters so my friend and I ordered a 75 MAIN CHOPPED SALAD and split it. It was a fairly large portion even the split, I loved everything in it, it gave me the crunch with the candid walnuts, the sweetness with the craisens and the other ingredients included were roasted red peppers, red onions, gorgonzola & balsamic vinaigrette. It was delicious, my only suggestion is if you order this salad, ask for the dressing on the side, the lettuce was somewhat wilted when it got to the table.

We then decided to order the SALMON BLT: grilled salmon, whole wheat bread, bacon, lettuce, tomato, tarragon mayonnaise and the TRADITIONAL MAINE LOBSTER ROLL. DSC_7547
Both sandwiches were very good, but the Lobster roll was by far my favorite, it was full of succulent lobster, well worth the $30. I was also excited to find out that you can now buy maine lobster online and get it delivered to almost anywhere in the USA. Not only do I no longer have to make a special trip for lobster, but I can now enjoy it in the comfort of my own home. In comparison, I liked the Salmon BLT but thought the salmon was over-cooked, so it was not as enjoyable as I would have liked.DSC_7549

We ended our meal with a dessert that we shared because I LOVE Tiramisu but was too full to eat it by myself……75 Main makes a very good Tiramisu and I was not disappointed.…DSC_7552
I could totally skip lunch and just go for dessert and coffee. If you have a sweet tooth you must try the Tiramisu. Many times some do not do a good job with this dessert, the cake is wet and spongy, but this cake just melted in my mouth. It was not wet, it was not spongy, the chocolate was not overly sweet, it fulfilled my sweet tooth without giving me a sugar rush. IT WAS PERFECT! I totally recommend you make a special trip just for the Lobster Roll and the Tiramisu.

Overall this was a nice way to spend an afternoon in the Hamptons with my buddy. I recommend going there for lunch and I look forward to dining there for dinner soon.

Rockefeller Center 2012Greetings Hamptons MouthPiece Readers….Earlier this week my lovely daughter and I drove into Manhattan, saw the tree at Rockefeller Center and had lunch at Bobby Van’s…we were anxious to visit because we enjoyed the food at the Bridgehampton location. The traffic was horrible going into the city but 3 hours later we arrived and parked on the East side and walked over to the West Side. We arrived around 130pm and the place was fully occupied with a lunch crowd. Everyone was smartly dressed in business attire and although every seat in the restaurant was occupied the acoustics in the restaurant were not so over-whelming. It felt private and you were able to hold a conversation within your party.
Dani LeggardWe checked our coats which was very nice to not be tied down to big bulky coats at the table, and we were seated immediately even though we were nearly an hour late from our reserved time. Our waiter Mike introduced himself and asked for our drink order, Dani settled for water and I ordered my usual Seltzer with a splash of cranberry and lime. Soon after bread was delivered, a nice variety, but I wish it was warm, however had it been I would have devoured it so maybe that was a blessing for my waist side.

Lump crab cake.Bobby VansWe placed our orders and I chose to start with an appetizer…I ordered the lump crab cake. It was delectable and melted in my mouth. It made me excited about the next dish. Dani decided not to have an appetizer since she was having a very heavy lunch she wanted to savor her taste buds for her meal.

It was time for our main dish, I chose to order the Lemon & Pepper Shrimp and Danielle ordered the Petite Lemon Pepper shrimpFilet Mignon, each dish came with a side order of hash browns. My dish was pleasantly delicious although the first bite was a bit over-whelming with the zest of the lemon but after that I really enjoyed the meal and cleared the plate.

Danielle loved her steak, it was juicy & succulent, melted in your mouth. The dipping sauce on the side was ridiculously amazing and the hash browns just completed the meal. The petite size was a perfect serving size for her.Petite Filet MignonWe both cleared our plates and decided to complete our dining experience we needed desert. Mike our waiter came over and we asked him for some recommendations we completely appreciated his honesty and his recommendations were right on target. Danielle ordered the Creme Brûlée and I ordered the Chocolate Truffle Cake with Homemade Whipped Creme e. OMG….DELICIOUS!!!!

Overall we had a pleasant dining experience. The place was lively, the service was wonderful, the food was amazing. I found the place to be a perfect choice for groups because they seem to specialize in group style portions; we saw many tables sharing a meal. Next time I am NYC I plan on visiting in the evening to check out the bar scene because I bet that is awesome. This is a restaurant to add to your list of NYC places to visit, especially if you are in the mood for steak.Creme Brûlée

Bobby Van’s Grill will be open for New Year’s Eve offering a premier of traditional American Grill fare, classics steakhouse favorites, fresh seafood and wood-fired pizza. Bobby Van’s is at 135 west 50th Street (bet: 6 &7th ave ) Price is expensive, but worth it. I said today I would rather spend $150 and enjoy my meal than $30 and walk away feel incomplete….
If you are in the Hamptons be sure to stop by their Hamptons place on Main Street in Bridgehampton, NY
