A new European-inspired dining and entertainment experience, Sienna Restaurant & UltraLounge, is opening in East Hampton this summer. The project is headed by Jonathan Rapillo, who is implementing this new concept at the 44 Three Mile Harbor Road venue that housed Beaumarchais East Hampton last summer, which he also owned and operated.
Sienna Restaurant & UltraLounge will feature Tony Fortuna’s TBar Steak and Lounge concept, as Sienna Restaurant by TBar, as well as a nightlife program courtesy of Pink Elephant.
Fortuna returns to the Hamptons after a year hiatus from TBar at Savanna’s. He brings along Executive Chef Ben Zwicker of prestigious New York kitchens, including the Four Seasons, Aureole, Petrossian and, most recently, TBar Steak & Lounge. Guests can expect TBar’s familiar eclectic American menu, which will be served five nights per week, Wednesday-Sunday, as well as weekend brunch service.
At Sienna, David Sarner and Robert Montwaid will bring Pink Elephant back to the Hamptons and programming will include a lineup of world-class DJs every Saturday. As each evening progresses, TBar will fade away as Sienna seamlessly transforms into a high-energy ultralounge. Dining tables will replaced by cocktail tables and the lighting will change to fit a nightlife vibe as the DJ booth goes live and continues late into the night.
Rapillo, whose Hamptons projects also included Rocco’s a la Playa, has gathered a team of consummate food & beverage professionals to execute his most comprehensive concept to date. He is also the president of Tufo Foods, a family-owned foodservice distributor.
Expect signature drinks, such as the Sienna Margarita, bottle service and satisfying meals with tasty entrees and substantial desserts. Entrees range from $26-$48.
