HERE AT THE MAIDSTONE  THE STAFF AND OWNERS CONSIDER  IT TO BE MORE THAN  A HOUSE THAN HOTEL.

Having completed a recent renovation in May of 2017 with a fresh perspective, their renowned photo art collection, and a commitment to eco-friendly practices, the hotel welcomes chic out-of-towners and locals alike. The new hotel design features an updated, whimsical take on the traditional Americana and Hamptons aesthetics that are reflected in the shared spaces throughout, including the pink sun room, art bar and new take on a classic lounge. The hotel has 19 individually designed rooms and cottages.


HISTORY

More than 150 years old, the Greek Revival at 207 Main Street has served many owners, each in a unique way suited to the era.

Constructed just before the Civil War by the Osborne family, the current structure has foundations dating from the 17th century. For much of the 19th century, the building was used as a tannery, and first took in overnight guests while their saddles were being repaired.

In the mid-1920s, the home began service as a full-time inn and became known as The Maidstone Arms. Newspaper columns in the ensuing decades announced the seasonal residency of a rotating roster of socialites, and the inn became a fashionable destination as East Hampton grew into a world-famous summer colony.

In 2008 the inn was purchased by Swedish hotelier Jenny Baker, and now welcomes discerning travelers at The Maidstone.


THE RESTAURANT

The Restaurant is where you want it to be, in the lounge, in the garden, in your room, on the porch, at the bar or in the dining room.   They have both cozy nooks for intimate dinners and large tables for family affairs.  Each meal is specifically designed by Executive Chef  Ronald A. Phillip who studied The art of culinary in Paris.


The Restaurant at the Maidstone Hotel is open from breakfast to a late night cocktails and offers a seasonal and ingredient-driven menu that reflects the bounty of the area.

Specialties include fresh market seafood, signature salad and freshly baked pies. Kids & Dogs get their own special menu. Brunch is severed Saturday & Sunday.

Patrons are always welcome to their ;ounge and garden for fresh cup of coffee or tea.   The Maidstone is open everyday.


BAR & LOUNGE

With elegant design and curated artwork, the Lounge is where old school hospitality meets contemporary comfort and luxury. Dogs are welcome to join you in the Bar & Lounge.


SUNROOM

Their bright and airy sunroom offers one-of-a kind views over Main Street and the pond as well as views and access to our Garden. A perfect venue for breakfast, champagne or your own private event. Dogs are welcome to join you in the Sun Room.


GARDEN

Beyond the bright and sunny sunroom, guests and visitors will discover our hidden gem – a spacious and secluded garden framed by elegant greenery, a beautiful and yet relaxed space in which guests can enjoy true Hampton outdoor dining, breakfast or and cocktails.

Blu Mar Hamptons

TV Host Cognac Wellerlane interviews Chef Erhan Ozkaya and Owner Zach Erdem of Blue Mar Restaurant Southampton, NY

I was thrilled to dine and interview at the newly opened Sexy Blue Mar Restaurant in Southampton, NY.

Occupying the Old Post House, and situated within Harpoon House, an intimate new hotel; Blu Mar is a glamorous Mediterranean seafood restaurant that marries pristine, wild seafood from Atlantic, Pacific and Mediterranean waters. This fabulous eatery is open for dinner and weekend brunch, the menu includes sharable mezzes, bright crudos, housemade pastas cooked to order, all alongside a selection of rotating simply grilled proteins served with local farm vegetables.

Everything is fresh from the sea and land!

We dined on MEDITERRANEAN SPREADS hummus, baba ganoush, artichoke-tapenade, grilled pita, traditional “GREEK SALAD” heirloom tomatoes, burrata, cucumbers, watermelon, olives, red onion, feta, SEAFOOD SALAD shrimp, crab, calamari, avocado, lemon emulsion, FRESH GULF SHRIMP olive oil, garlic, chili, jerez vinegar and BOUILLABAISSE mediterranean seafood stew – today’s seafood, mussels, rouille.

Blu Mar has a striking decor setting the scene for a hip and elegant dining experience (European pebble driveway, generous outdoor seating area, vaulted ceilings in the main dining room contrasted with Andy Warhol signed colorful portraits of bardo and Monroe over a romatic fire place!

Restaurateur Zach Erdem Transforms a Hamptons Staple into a Year-Round Hotspot

Rising restaurateur Zach Erdem has gained considerable attention in the hospitality industry after transforming a seasonal Hamptons dining staple into a year-round hotspot. The dynamic 32-year-old has used his unique design to balance the classic style of the Hamptons with the enticing elements of New York City nightlife to reinvent the Southampton eatery, 75 Main. The ever popular restaurant and lounge has become a favorite among locals, visitors and celebrities alike, attracting Hollywood’s A-Listers and politicians such as Sarah Jessica Parker, LA Reid, Kelly Ripa, Stanley Tucci, Sofia Vergara, Howard Stern, Pierce Brosnan, Barbara Walters, Jodie Foster, Alex Rodriquez and Vice President Joe Biden.

Erdem’s esteemed reputation in the restaurant industry was not established overnight. After moving from Europa to the United States in 2002, Erdem was struggling to make a living and had planned to move back home after just six months. With only sixty dollars in his pocket—which was loaned to him by a friend—Erdem decided to take a quick trip to the Hamptons two days before his scheduled flight. After arriving at the East End, he ordered lunch at the first restaurant he saw—75 Main.

Erdem quickly befriended 75 Main’s General Manager, who offered him a bartending position on the spot. Impressed by the Hamptons and its reputation, Erdem ultimately strived to create a name for himself in this elite community. In the years that followed, Erdem traveled all over the country, working in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Miami, gaining insight into the continuously changing restaurant business. Erdem eventually returned to Southampton to manage the popular Nello Summertimes and brought his experience to bear.

In May 2010, Erdem was finally able to fulfill his dream of taking ownership of 75 Main—a dream that was born over nine years earlier on the beaches of the East End. Using a combination of an expertly crafted menu, sophisticated decor, and post-dinner entertainment, Erdem is taking the already established restaurant to the next level. Erdem collaborated with well-known and award winning chefs, artists, designers and D.J.’s, revamping 75 Main into one of the Hamptons popular destinations for high-end fare, ambiance and nightlife scene.

After his success in the Hamptons, Erdem searched for the perfect location to open a second restaurant. In April 12 2012, Zach Erdem took his talents down to South Florida and opened 75 Main in Delray Beach, Florida. Drawn to the charming seaside community's vibrant mix of dining, shopping, and cultural amenities, Erdem found this venue to be as thriving as the original 75 Main. 75 Main Delray has already gained a celebrity following with the likes of actor and comedian Kevin James and retired Hall of Fame basketball player Dennis Rodman, michael Jordan.

In the future, Erdem hopes to expend his reach, opening additional restaurants in some of the world’s most renowned locations.

Blue Mar Restaurant is his latest challenge only steps away from his first restaurant in Southampton, 75 Main.

TV HOST COGNAC WELLERLANE POSES FOR A PHOTO-WITH MANAGERIAL PARTNER YAKUP BERI AT USKUDAR TURKISH RESTAURANT

Dining at this Turkish treasure and I mean treasure was truly an edible experience and a fabulous delight. Don't let the narrow passage way fool you the food is is fit for an extravagant sultan in a lavish middle eastern palace.

The ammbiance is cozy, cool vibes mixed with authentic Turkish accents. Take a look at the beautiful red- orange ceiling with intricate multidimensional decorations. Throughout the walls you'll see decorated with beautiful glass shades with unique colors, shaped like teardrops.

Extremely generous portions of the slow roasted pulled lamb kebab was so mouth watering, flavorful and deliciously tender. 


Below are some reviews of devoted patrons that frequent the restaurant:

I hosted a dinner party of 15 guests and was very pleased with the whole experience! The food was delicious, the setting was perfect for our group size and the staff was great! Thank you so much! I definitely plan to dine there again, and am glad to know about the venue for future group dinners.

Edna Mascreen

Great food, loved the ambience and amazing service. Will certainly go there again!

Melissa Yuan

Fantastic food and service, and a nice ambiance. Highly recommend the Hunkar Begendi- really delicious lamb! (Picture is of the chicken shish).

Marissa Schaeffer

Engin and the team at Uskudar put together a beautiful dinner for my Mother in Law’s Birthday last night. They helped us arrange a family style menu, were incredibly accommodating with dietary restrictions, and even had fresh flowers and a birthday card for her when we arrived at the restaurant! The food was delicious, fresh, there was variety for everyone, and the service was lovely. Highly recommend for a drop in dinner or for a private event!

Conor V

Food was amazing. I could come here just for the bread and humus!! The tirdu dish was amazing. The lamb was so soft and flavorful. Highly recommend!

nazish abdullah

I just loved this place. They are very fast and prices are cheap. The menu is extensive. The two course lunch is amazing. Waiting for my next visit!

Jeff Nobel

Great food, beautiful NY space with character, and the staff are all incredibly friendly and attentive. The Original Room was a perfect spot for a 20+ person private birthday celebration dinner, and it’s always a great place to stop in for dinner. Very much recommended!

David Moskowitz

Outstanding food. Some of the best red lentil soup I’ve had. Also try the chicken with artichokes & the moussaka. Side salad was chunky, not lettuce. Tomatoes, cucumbers & more.

Necator Nimrod

love it love it love it

Such warm, friendly atmosphere. Food is wonderful… oh and the bread they bring you… so amazing. Waitresses are very friendly and accommodating. The guys who do the cooking (I think it is mostly guys, but I may be mistaken, in that case please forgive me) take lots of pride in their creations, and are a delight to talk to. I first went here after reading a review on Yelp, and have been back several times, even brought here my colleagues and a applicants we were interviewing for some new positions. They enjoyed it as well. Come here, you definitely won’t regret it!!! Oh, and yes, there are both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes available.

Guillermo Lucerofabbi

Very cool place with lovely staff.

Court Passant

Yummy food. Small restaurant. Great service. Highly recommended. The chicken sish is the bomb.

Keith Longmore

The good is well prepared, plentiful and the staff is attentive

Naim Osmanaj

Amazing food.

Jacob Beri

tarama and liverArnavut are great starters

Michael Pinker

We have eaten here quite a few years, and each time, lunch or dinner, we have been very pleased with the cuisine, low-key atmosphere, and top-notch service of the small staff. We are always made to feel welcome, and at lunch the chef himself often also serves as waiter and is as kind and patient as he can be. For excellent value, superior cooking, and a clean, neat milieu, Uskudar is hard to beat.

gary nielsen

One word…delicious.

guangyu huang

(Translated by Google) Exotic, good

New york sokaklarında bir Türk restoranına rastlamak hele de semtimin adıyla adaş bir mekan görmek harika : )

Alexander Dane

Nice place for Turkish food, restaurant is a bit small.

Mike Zollner

Good place for lamb made how you like. Service was nice and they were kind enough to give me vegetables instead of rice. They even make their own bread and hot sauce.

Monica 夏

I went to Uskudar for a birthday dinner on a groupon purchase. What a comfortable little spot!!! It’s always nice to find the tiny gems! The place is very clean and service is quick!!! …More

Laura Kelm

Not your usual kebob joint, with unusual savory dishes. The Chicken Artichoke is a particular favorite–how do they infuse chicken with such a strong artichoke flavor? Small and intimate, can be a bit loud when it’s crowded.

Lee Goldberg

Amazing food. Absolutely delicious pide bread and lentil soup. Great for delivery – food always arrives quickly.

D Nguyễn

I’ve always loved Turkish cuisine especially after visiting Istanbul. I recommend for those who haven’t to do so but that is for another website. This small cute restaurant on the UES was our destination after an event in the neighborhood. We went for the stuffed grape leaves and Ciger (liver) to start. Both were very good. As for entrée Chicken Adana and Hunkar Begendi(lamb) was both delicious. The chicken on the skewer was moist and tender and seasoned nicely. The lamb in a stew of eggplant and tomatoes was hearty and flavorful. We’ll be returning if we are ever in the neighborhood and wanting a good Turkish meal. Heck, might just buy a ticket on Turkish Air.

TV Host Cognac Wellerlane interviews Executive Chef and Co-creator Anthony Carron at 800 Degrees

800° Woodfired Kitchen is Anthony Carron’s chef-inspired and innovative take on the art of cooking with wood fire. Their entire menu is woodfired to perfection, infusing each item with just the right amount of smokiness. The restaurant starts with the highest-quality ingredients, scratch dough, fresh produce and artisan-quality meats and cheeses, and they create an offering as authentic and delicious as it is remarkably diverse. The result is craveable and irresistibly delicious craft pizza, rotisserie meats, salads, bowls, veggies and more. Taste the magic of woodfired!

My take on this incredible restaurant group with locations all around the world, 800 Degrees is kind of like the Chipotle for pizza -- you choose the ingredients for your pizza and then the pie is cooked under two minutes in an insanely hot (800 degrees!) oven. The pies are satisfying, the service fast, and the ingredients top-notch. Speciality pies and gluten-free crust is also available, so really, the choice is yours.

My favorite is the pie with the cauliflower crust, yum!
