Twinkle Toast Prepare to Wine While You Dine at Hamptons
Hamptons, located in Tivoli Village, is a brand-new concept created for Las Vegas by Heinrich Stasiuk’s Wild Thyme Restaurant Group. Although Hamptons might be new, it already earned a place in Eater Las Vegas’ 2017 Eater Awards. It was ranked among the top 5 prettiest restaurants in town, and was the only off-Strip restaurant to be recognized in the bunch.
Hamptons’ Operating Partner, Howard Klubeck, describes their concept as an “upscale watering hole.” Its industrial-chic décor and modern American cuisine offer a beautiful yet comfortable environment that is a perfect fit for a Sunday brunch or casual bite and cocktails as well as a romantic date night. Hamptons also boasts an outdoor patio and a stunning second-floor dining room for private events.
When we spoke with Chef Jay Bogsinske, formerly of Saint Marc in Huntington Beach, he gave us a little insight into which dishes are proving to be most popular with their guests. With little hesitation, he noted two stand-outs: The Green Chili Pork Stew with Oaxaca cheese, cornbread, whipped honey butter, charred jalapeño, cilantro leaf and shaved scallion; and the Wild Isles Salmon Mignon with roasted cauliflower, honey and garlic-braised carrots and rosemary cauliflower sauce with caper and raisin emulsion. For those who might be interested in a glass of wine to pair with these delectable dishes, we would recommend trying the Bex Riesling or Jovino Pinot Grigio with the Green Chili Pork Stew, and the Handcraft Pinot Noir or the Louis Latour Chassagne-Montrachet rouge, if you are up to ordering a full bottle, for the Wild Isles Salmon Mignon.
Klubeck advised that they are brainstorming ideas for new promotions and events for the new year, and they are excited to offer three featured appetizer pairings with wines from Huneeus Vitners, founders of Quintessa estate, during the month of January. Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay, Faust Cabernet Sauvignon and Leviathan red blend will each be available with its own appetizer for just $30. Considering that a glass of these wines alone can warrant that $30 price tag, this is quite the steal!
Beginning in January, Hamptons is also planning on offering wine dinners for its patrons. Details are still being confirmed but JUSTIN Vineyards should be the first on the docket. For more information, or to make a reservation, visit www.hamptonslv.com. Space for these wine dinners will be limited.
