The 1770 House has a small dining room, with old-wood tables, soft lighting, and Oriental rugs, and a more casual dining area and tavern-style bar in the basement with less extravagant prices. The restaurant offers cosseting service, high-quality contemporary American food with an emphasis on simplicity, beautiful presentation, and has a comfortable sound level. There is a new chef at the helm, Michael Rozzi (formerly executive chef of Della Femina Restaurant in East Hampton). New entree choices include roasted dayboat halibut with fava beans, wild mushrooms and red mustard greens, and seared Montauk sea scallops with baby carrot and local leek hash and foie gras emulsion. Local products are served whenever possible. A nice addition is the outdoor patio where, along with enjoying your food, you can enjoy a beautiful evening outside.
