Dan’s Taste of Two Forks Expands This Year; Friday Night Will Be a ‘Grill Off’


Dan’s Taste of Two Forks is now taking over a weekend. In addition to the walkaround tasting on Saturday night, local and New York City chefs will be competing to become the GrillHampton Master Chef.

GrillHampton is presented by Pat Lafreida Meat Purveyors and will be hosted by Geoffrey Zakarian, Food Network’s Iron Chef. It’s is a grilling competition between eight Manhattan chefs versus eight East End chefs. The competition will be determined by five celebrity judges including Kate Krader, FOOD & WINE magazine editor, and Jeffrey Chodorow, restaurateur. The event will take place at Sayre Park in Bridgehampton (156 Snake Hollow Road) from 8 to 11 p.m. General admission tickets are $115.

Armed only with the grilling essentials, chefs will prepare a full range of perfectly charred foods from beef and fish to poultry and pork. Guests at the event will also get a chance to vote on their favorite.

Come to cheer on our East End chefs:

  • Colin Ambrose (Estia’s Little Kitchen)
  • Emanouil Aslanoglou (Old Stove Pub)
  • Bryan Futerman (Foody’s)
  • David Hersh (Cowfish and Rumba restaurants)

  • Peter Ambrose (Hampton Seafood Company/Peter Ambrose Event Catering)
  • Keith Luce (Main Restaurant & Oyster Bar), NoahSchwartz (Noah’s), and Robby Beaver (The Frisky Oyster) as the “Greenport Team”
