One way to judge a restaurant’s ability is how well it prepares a simple roasted chicken. If this is the yardstick, then Bobby Van’s version—moist, herb-stuffed, and perched atop a mini-mountain of creamy mashed potatoes and fresh, just-wilted, buttery spinach—is the metric, gold-skinned standard. But basic here shouldn’t be confused with inexpensive. Since 1969, this original outpost of the ten-strong Bobby Van mini-empire has been serving overpriced surf and turf to well-heeled Hamptons regulars who value the comfort of consistency over the flash of surprise. The dining room has the lazy feel of a pretty South Pacific officers’ club, with its wicker-backed, bamboo-framed chairs, strips of mahogany paneling with burlap wallpaper in between, and slowly spinning oil-skin fans. A salty-creamy traditional anchovy-strewn Caesar salad with chunks and shavings of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and crunchy house-made croutons is the perfect prelude to a thick porterhouse or veal chop. But the weekly prix-fixe, at $27, is a much better deal.


Bobby Van's is named for the piano player who used to delight guests at the restaurant.
