Foodgod Discusses Dan’s Taste Signature Weekend Presented by Yieldstreet

What do you love about the Hamptons?

I love the Hamptons, it is Miami without the palm trees.

What are your favorite places to eat in the Hamptons?

Le Bilboquet, 75 MainSant Ambroeus and Levain Bakery.

What are you most excited about for the Dan’s Taste presented by Yieldstreet events?

I am excited to host the events and see the large amounts of people together again. It’s been a few years since the Hamptons has been cooking, no pun intended.

Dan’s GrillHampton

Dan’s GrillHampton is the ultimate culinary clash of Hamptons versus New York City, at which eight East End chefs and pitmasters will compete against eight of their Manhattan counterparts to win the votes of celebrity judges and guests.

Only one team’s dishes can secure the victory, so the competition will be fierce. And while guests are deciding on their champion, they won’t want to miss all the beer, specialty cocktails, live music and dancing that round out this one-of-a-kind night of grilling and good times.

Dan’s Bubbles

The all-new Dan’s Bubbles is both familiar and fresh all at once. It’s a walk-around tasting and as the name implies, this will be the first Dan’s Taste Summer Series presented by Yieldstreet event to place bubbly center stage.

Guests will enjoy the finest Bubblies as they pair each glass with fresh seafood and fried chicken prepared by 15 esteemed local chefs from premier eateries in Hamptons and on the North Fork. This is sure to be a night to remember.
