Description: In 2001 Jason Weiner and Eric Lemonides opened Almond. Almond quickly became the "un-Hamptons" restaurant the Hamptons desperately needed. Jason's commitment to straight forward, locally sourced cuisine and Eric's commitment to being nice to people soon garnered a fiercely loyal following for the restaurant. Almond quickly became a go-to spot in the Hamptons for locals, celebrities, tourists, and fellow restaurateurs. The critics caught on as well. Almond garnered accolades from such esteemed publications as Wine Spectator and the New York Times. Fast-forward 10 years and the iconic Hamptons French bistro enters a new era in a new location in downtown Bridgehampton. Almonds new home is a historic space with 100-year-old tin ceilings, hand carved bar and classic white subway tile. Jason continues to cook good food and Eric is still nice to people. They also haven't lost their knack for sucking up to food journalists. Peter Gianotti of Newsday awarded the new spot three stars and named Almond the Best New Restaurant of 2011

Because the service was awful. But the food was so good, it almost didn't matter. The pork we had was amazing...it was pretty pink near the bone which was a red flag, but all turned out well. Highly recommended--can't let one bad waiter ruin my review!

We like to visit the Hamptons in the off-season every year and we always go to to the Almond restaurant for great modern French bistro fare. It is very popular and they have moved fairly recently and really invested in their newer digs. It is much more spacious and has the classic bistro look of cousins like Balthazar in Manhattan. The food and service remain excellent. Unfortunately I was a bit under the weather for our recent visit, but The Almond remains steady. I can't really say the same for it's sister Almond restaurant in Manhattan's Flatiron district, which is is just ok.

We used to go to Almond every week. The food is great, the ambiance lovely although loud and the staff is beyond attentive. But the menu never changes. My husband got bored by the same thing all the time!

Almond is a favoriate go-to because it's always consistent. The roast chicken is among the best I've ever had. The service is friendly and professional and the vibe is good. The only negative is that when busy (almost always) it's very noisy. We tend to eat at the bar when we can since it's actually a bit quieter. As with most Hamptons restaurants, it's hard to get into in the summer on weekends, but off-season, it's a great choice.

I have been eating at Almond in the Hamptons for years in its current village center location and I it's previous site just up the road. Eric - the owner - is unfailingly full of goodwill as are his staff. Whilst the food is not the finest in the area there are some stand-out dishes which keep one going back such as the sprouts on the style of a Cesar salad, the winter salad and the raw bar. The scene on a Friday night is always loud and crowded but the remainder of the week has a more relaxed crowd - particularly in the winter. Love it...
