Why We Love Pierre's

by Joseph Russell · July 22, 2008

Because c'est adorable, in an upscale but personal tropical resorty way. Because it serves straight-from-the-oven croissants and almond brioche in the early morning. Because the mimosas and mango bellinis are effervescent perfection. Because most of the ingredients on the French/New American menu are locally sourced. Because the main courses (like parmesan-encrusted Chilean sea bass and a Long Island duck magret) are called "Plats de Resistance." Because there's also a cheerful yellow bar, and, on Tuesdays, live music. Jody Carlson and her band go on at 8, and I hear they do a mean "Mountains of Things." See you there!

Pierre's is located at 2468 Main Street, Bridgehampton
