No party comes together all on its own. A big bash like Dan’s GrillHampton takes a small army of people behind the scenes and out in front making the night nothing short of delicious. We’d like to take a moment to thank all of our chefs who worked hard to create memorable bites and our sponsors who made it all possible. Until next year, we raise a glass to you and wish you well.
Congratulations goes out to our Team Hampton Chefs who took home the coveted trophy: Chris Cariello of 1 North Steakhouse, Michael Mosolino of Deli Counter Fine Foods & Catering, Peter Ambrose of Endless Summer Event Catering, David Hersh of Rumba Inspired Island Cuisine and Rum Bar, Arthur Wolf of Smokin’ Wolf BBQ & More, Cheffe Colette Connor of The Inn Spot on the Bay, Julio Quisbert of Old Stove Pub, and Jason Kallert of The Beach Club at Gurney’s Montauk.
