Concierge.com's insider take:
Pierre's is the perfect Hamptons microcosm: wicker bar stools, white linens, retro-chic pressed-tin ceilings, a well-heeled but dressed-down crowd, and a hint of the sniffiness that irks even as it makes you feel just a little bit lucky to be here. More important, the food is reliably good, whether you've ordered the mussels in white wine sauce or a true plat de résistance like the lobster fricassée. The most desirable tables are in the narrow area near the front, by the pastry display that advertises extremely tasty house-made napoleons. During weekend brunch, outdoor tables offer quality people-watching along Bridgehampton's main drag. When it comes to seating, though, unless you're a very familiar face to owner Pierre Weber, you'll probably have to settle for what you get.—Darrell Hartman
