Unlike many parts of the Hamptons, Bridgehampton's village area tends to stay fairly active year-round - and this restaurant handles a significant portion of that oft-returning crowd. It's open all year round; diners can always eat in a room of simple-but-upscale furniture warmed by colorful art. However, come the summer the storefront sidewalk welcomes a number of tables, and the space becomes a low-lit and breezy space for warm-weather dining. As for the menu, think lots of seafood-powered soups, salads, appetizers and entrées done with contemporary French flair - but if just a drink will do, Pierre's also features a list of flashy cocktails.


Mon-Thurs: 8 a.m.-10 p.m.; Fri-Sun: 8 a.m.-11:30 p.m.

 Pierre's has all the expected hot-weather, Hamptons' style. But the restaurant has a see-you-in-September quality, too.

Colorful artwork may remind you of the previous occupant, Lure at the Independent. But the similarities are few. The kitchen now is eclectic, with a dash of Latin, some Italian, snippets of new and traditional American, a cameo of Thai, another of French.

Chilled potato-and-leek soup, the tomato terrine with lobster and the seviche of finfish and shellfish are fine starters.

The best salad stars plump, pan-roasted sea scallops, charred wedges of grapefruit and endive, in a citrus vinaigrette.

Linguine tossed with cockles, littlenecks, and razor clams is sauced with white wine, lemon and garlic, for a tasty variation on the familiar theme.

Oven-roasted halibut with lemon and white wine is a pristine choice. You'll also enjoy filet mignon, thick and velvety, surrounded by crisp and good fries.

For dessert, skip the fancier offerings in favor of a stem glass of Campari-grapefruit sorbet.
