Are you ever out in Meatpacking and think "what with all the skin and inflated plastic globes here, I should really be near the beach"? Well, Beaumarchais has apparently also recognized the synergy, and are now opening up shop in East Hampton.
Just outside East Hampton village, Beau East represents the combined efforts of Hamptons vets from RdV East and Rocco’s a la Playa: a lavish brunch 'n dinner upscaler with a lush 60-seat brick patio, and a white-tiled dining room outfitted with a copper bar, orange banquettes, chandeliers, and large skylights, presumably so God can see you, and be all jealous. Dinner service'll be weekend exclusive, so you're best off ordering/doggy-bagging five of everything on the menu, which lists those same Beau favorites (tuna tartare w/ homemade plantain chips, truffled roasted chicken) next to Hamptons-inspired newness like a lemon/lime/orange local fluke ceviche w/ wasabi peas & candied ginger. Beau's also been kind enough to bring their famed brunch parties out with them on Sat/Sun afternoons, complete with classic French omelets and toast (the latter with caramelized bananas & whipped cream), and, more importantly, “a fantastic rotation of international DJs" with enough "endless Rosé wine and Champagne” to ensure pretty much everything seems to be in fantastic rotation.
And fear not, the weekend-sclusive hours are only temporary: they plan to be open Mondays and Thursdays from The Fourth through Labor Day, at which point you'll think "what with all the white at these Hamptons parties, I might as well be back in Meatpacking".
