Alison’s beach-bungalow décor—blue-and-white-striped curtains, pillows, and seat cushions set off by white wainscoting—draws a savvy crowd that’s media-hip enough to recognize the provenance of the photos that line the dining rooms’ walls; they’re the work of Jonathan Becker, contributing photographer at Vanity Fair and brother of owner Alison Becker-Hurt, whose husband, writer Harry Hurt, is often on hand to share golf stories at the eatery’s copper-topped bar. Best of all, chef Robert Gurvich has returned, after an untimely exit in 2004. His cuisine still highlights Basque influences, with fish dishes that change with the tides. The menu usually features a lighter risotto with a twist, such as sautéed tangerine slices entwined with shrimp. Clever touches and seasonal changes aside, the food is consistently good, with toothsome staples like dry-aged sirloin, grilled hanger steak, and pan-roasted free-range chicken.
