The Wild Rose shall rise again. Imminently as Zigmund's, the gastro-saloon from the boys at @almondbridgehampton across the highway. Do you have a fond memory of the Wild Rose? Got a tall tale of too much fun? A favorite band you saw there? An incident when you left on your elbow? Tell us about it. We are collecting a history on this roadhouse bar location. And if you have a photo to share with us we will consider you a friend of Edible. And buy you a drink when Zigmund's opens. ?
Eric Lemonides and Jason Weiner, the owners of Bridgehampton’s Almond, will launch Zigmund’s at 203 Bridgehampton Sag Harbor Turnpike (in the former Fresh Hamptons space) on July 25. Zigmund’s, named for Weiner’s wife Almond Zigmund, will be a bar inspired by the the Wild Rose, which at this location in the ’90s was a busy watering hole and live music venue.
Cocktails, which will incorporate ingredients from the on-site garden, will be the focus with a menu created by barman Justin August Fairweather. The garden will be maintained by Amagansett’s Amber Waves Farm.
Seven cocktails made with fresh herbs will be on tap. For example, a vodka soda at Zigmund’s will be made with lemon verbena vodka, lemon balm and citrus zest marinated for 24 hours.
A small bar menu will feature Weiner’s take on Greek-inspired dishes.
The daily themes at Zigmund’s include industry night on Mondays; karaoke night on Wednesday; bluegrass on Thursdays, disco on Friday and a disco DJ on Saturdays.
Reggae Sunday sponsored by Appleton Rum will $7 tiki drinks and $20 tiki pitchers. In addition to the daily specials a piano player will hold court nightly from 5 to 9 p.m. and a happy hour will run every night from 5 to 7 p.m.
