There is a reason Jimmy Buffet named a song “Cheeseburger’s in Paradise.” Because cheeseburgers are the best thing to eat when its nice out and since Spring is just around the corner, Haute Living compiled a list of the top 5 burger joints in the Hamptons for you to get your Buffet on.
The beachside French bistro, Almond may specialize in escargot and steak frites, but their Hamburger “Deluxe” is a Hampton’s favorite. As you walk into this eatery you’ll notice the French vibe right away. From the warm walls to the tin ceilings and candlelit tables, Almond will give you a joi de vivre even before you try the scrumptious burger.
2 Bay Burger
If you’re an avid reader of Vanity Fair then you have heard of Bay Burger. This Sag Harbor restaurant makes burgers from the ground up. Buns are baked fresh daily and only the most essential of ingredients- flour, butter, eggs and milk- are used. The grade A beef is ground every morning as well. If your looking for the perfect burger anywhere even outside of the Hamptons, you wont find many places that can top Bay Burger.
3 The Corner Bar
Opened in 1978, The Corner Bar is key for anyone looking for more than just the classical hamburger. With an array of toppings to choose from, customers can mix and match to however they desire. Try the Turkey Burger at this local haunt, a house favorite. With an outdoor patio, The Corner Bar is a great place to sit back, drink a beer and enjoy a juicy burger.
4 Rowdy Hall
According to Rowdy Hall legend, the restaurant tucked away on Main Street earned its name when churchgoers would head home and pass the bar on Sunday’s and look in horror upon the rowdy artists and bohemes starting the day off right. A “rowdy hall” indeed. Today, the bar has calmed down a bit, but its burgers are vivacious and mouth watering. This hybrid of an English pub and French bistro takes the best of both worlds and makes a delicious paddy.
Since 1923, Silver’s has served bistro treats along with lobster bisques, but what makes this place a real haute spot in the Hamptons, is its tasty sirloin burgers. With a casual atmosphere and laid back European café vibe with post-impressionist paintings, there is no better place to chow down on a top-of-the-line burger in the Hamptons.
