'We're excited to bring a younger sister version of a T Bar to Southampton," Axelrod relayed. "We're expecting a mix of everyone from the fashion crowd and celebrities to loyal clientele, neighbors and those seeking a great meal and atmosphere."
Helmed by chefs Ben Zwicker
and Segundo Pelaez, the Hamptons outpost of the Manhattan eatery will offer modern American steak, seafood and sushi.
"Once we open our doors, we will be working on some light live music entertainment and will start with a contemporary jazz band," Axelrod noted.
The cocktail and wine program will be of major focus, with a late night reverse happy hour with specials on food and drinks at the bar.
"We will cater to the demographic on given nights and will be sure to update everyone on our social channels once we have the full lineup!" Axelrod explained.
