Southampton hotspot 75 Main may be best known for its celebrity clientele and excellent outdoor seating, but there’s a reason the rich and famous eat there—the food is really good.
The brunch has already been named among the greatest on the Island, and no one can deny 75 Main’s lunch and dinner fare, so why not skip right to dessert? This Main Street restaurant is a clear contender in our search for the Hamptons’ most delicious sweet delights, and the Liquid Cheesecake stands out among all their estimable offerings.
Is this the Best Dessert in the Hamptons?
Whether it’s served in a chocolate shell or a cool, angled glass, with diced strawberries or extra whipped cream, chef Mark Militello’s deconstructed take on the classic dessert never fails to please. The mix of summer strawberry, underbaked cheesecake, graham cracker and walnut crust, and fresh whipped cream is melt-in-your-mouth good, even if it’s already melted before you pick up a spoon. It’s sweet, but not overwhelmingly so.
Pair this treat with a nice, hot double espresso for a perfect marriage of complementary flavors that’s totally worth having with or without the meal that usually comes before.
Never without a star-powered dining story, 75 Main owner Zach Erdem says his pal Jonathan Cheban, of Keeping Up with the Kardashians fame, whet his fans’ collective taste buds during a recent visit with a photo of his Liquid Cheesecake on Instagram, so it seems the dessert is not only good, its brag-worthy among the celebrity set.
