Ivy On Main Opens in Westhampton Beach Replacing Mambo Kitchen
New restaurant to the scene is already turning heads early in the season.
Joining another new spot, Fauna, which is replacing the legendary Starr Boggs restaurant just around the bend at 6 Parlato Drive, Ivy on Main is serving up a menu of Mediterranean influenced New American food with cocktail lounge for the more understated crowds of Hamptonites who love the seaside village but not the glitzy glam of the east of the Shinnecock scene.
Ivy On Main replaces Mambo Kitchen, the Hawaiian-influenced eatery at 103 Main Street.
They have a Mediterranean olive tapenade with grilled pita bread ($9), and eggplant caponata crostini ($9), and a wild mushroom toast on brioche ($14) on the small plate menu. Citrus salad with endive, grapefruit vinaigrette, blood sorrel, and pistachio butter ($16), burrata and tomato with roasted red peppers, basil oil, and prosciutto di parma ($20) is on the appetizer menu among others. Main plates includes a Shinnecock fluke grenobloise in brown butter, capers, lemon and parsley ($38), an Ivy burger with their signature blend of meat, gruyere, sauce gribiche, and truffle pommes frites ($24), and a grilled skirt steak with roasted fingerling potatoes ($36).
On Yelp, Brooke F, from Melville, gave it five stars.
“Such an elegant little spot,” she said. “My new favorite restaurant in West Hampton (sic). The staff were friendly. We sat at the bar and the bartenders were super nice. Every single thing I tried was delicious including the drinks. My favorite food was the meatballs and skirt steak. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and will definitely be going back.”
Google reviews have been almost all positive as well.
