Memorial Day weekend is still a few weeks away, but the Hamptons restaurant scene is already heating up as EMP Summer House, an East Hampton pop up eatery from the recently named World's Best Restaurant, Eleven Madison Park, is officially accepting reservations.

"We could not be more excited to be bringing Eleven Madison Park to the Hamptons. In addition to giving us an opportunity to show our guests a more casual version of EMP, it's also really fun for us to do as New Yorkers do, and head east for the summer," shared restaurateur Will Guidara. "And getting to do this alongside our partners at American Express has been incredible- we have been coupling our creativity with theirs and coming up with some really fun ideas- it's going to be a good one!"
"The menu for EMP Summer House will be more casual than what we serve at our Manhattan home, but still delicious," added Chef Daniel Humm. "And guests can join us for a quick drink, a burger or lobster roll, or multiple courses and some great wines - there's beautiful flexibility to the type of experience people can have here,"
Chef Humm curated the seafood-heavy menu in partnership with Guidara. It will encompass raw seafood preparations, flatbreads, pastas, steaks, and large format experiences such as fried chicken dinners and lobster boils.
