Bonj, Le Bilboquet! Owner Philippe Delgrange dishes on his first Hamptons outpost.
Why Sag Harbor?
I have looked at spaces in the Hamptons for years, but when this space became available, I couldn’t say no. This is the most beautiful location in the Hamptons, in my opinion. It’s much larger than the NYC location. We did a complete gut renovation, so it’s brand-new, airy, and beautiful.
What’s the vibe?
Le Bilboquet has always been about joie de vivre. The enchanting setting on the harbor will add to that feeling of bien-être.
What kinds of dishes will you be serving?
All our signatures, including the Cajun chicken, tuna tartare, steak tartare, and Dover sole. We’ll also offer a Crudo Bar and fresh local fish of the day, in addition to fresh seafood and shellfish platters with local oysters, lobsters, shrimp, and more.
How will you incorporate local products?
We’re working with local fisherman and farms. There is a plethora of wonderful local products to celebrate!
