Simply put, Ziggy's is like Surf Lodge meets Cyril's Fish House but in Bridgehampton. Barely under a year old, this restaurant is most commonly known as the space where nightclub "Harbor Club" used to reside. However, the restaurant really should be known for so much more. Located a short drive off of Montauk highway, Ziggy Attias drew inspiration from California and surfing when it came to the restaurants design and menu. There are five flat screens that all show different surfing footage, surfboards are stationed around the restaurant, and a standing rack full of Surf and Island magazines are at your leisure to read. To add a creative touch, all of the tables are made of slate. Taking a trip down memory lane, you can draw doodles with Ziggy's chalk or play a game of tic-tac-toe while waiting for your food.
The large patio and outdoor seating area is the perfect place to enjoy a cold red stripe and some summer sun in addition to live music by the main beach Drummers Circle Band. Ziggy's may be a newcomer on the Hamptons restaurant scene yet would would never know that buy the looks of it. Ziggy Atias truly knows what he is doing when it comes to food service. In a time when society seems so unpredictable, Ziggy Atias has brought a restaurant to the Hamptons that is dependable and a guaranteed memorable time.
