New in the Hamptons: Bay Kitchen Bar


stacy-knowsby Stacy: Sea to Table

Situated adjacent to Harbor Marina on Three Mile Harbor, Bay Kitchen Bar is the latest venture of successful culinary pursuits from Chef-Restaurateur Eric Miller and partner, Richard Silver. Opened on April 17th, Bay Kitchen Bar offers the ideal location for Miller’s vision of a picturesque waterside dining establishment where patrons will enjoy the most fabulous sunset views, refreshing cocktails and best “sea-to-table” seafood that local and East Coast suppliers have to offer.

For this new venture, Eric Miller, who will serve as Executive Chef and Partner, is thrilled to welcome his son, Adam Miller, to the family business. Observing Adam excel in the wine program at the International Culinary Center, Miller says: “I thought to myself, ‘it would be great for Adam and I to take this ride together, at Bay Kitchen Bar and for our future projects.’” The younger Miller partner will be responsible for all front of house operations as Managing Partner. Rounding out the team is Chef de Cuisine Keith Rennie (Madison and Main, Nice Matin), who brings his own considerable seafood expertise to the kitchen.

The menu sticks to what Miller and Rennie are best known for: local and East Coast seafood classics. For Bay Kitchen Bar, Miller will rely on his relationships with local clammers, lobsterers, fisheries and other purveyors to source the best possible quality ingredients. These relationships have been fostered for years while Miller was at the helm of Madison and Main, The Catch, Hampton Clam Bake and even The Long Wharf and Carol’s in the 1980s. SaysMiller, “When you can go into a dining room and tell the customer the oysters came out of the water this morning in Montauk, it doesn’t get much better.”
