Almond, an American bistro located in New York City’s bustling Flatiron District, with a second location in beautiful Bridgehampton, Long Island combines the best of rustic French cuisine in a casually elegant atmosphere. Co-owner and Executive Chef Jason Weiner offers a menu of accessible dishes that put local, seasonal, market-fresh ingredients center stage.

In 2001, Jason Weiner and Eric Lemonides opened Almond, which quickly became the “un-Hamptons” restaurant the Hamptons needed, featuring fresh, straightforward, locally sourced, seasonally inspired French-American bistro cuisine. Almond is a favorite for locals, celebrities, tourists, and fellow restaurateurs and has garnered accolades from the New York Times, Newsday, and Wine Spectator. Jason began his culinary career in San Francisco, where he worked with Michael Mina. Eric Lemonides grew up in Brooklyn into a family of restaurant owners, where he learned the business as a child. He later moved to San Francisco, where he managed Piemonte Ovest. He returned to New York to oversee Dellafemina in East Hampton and later F. Illi Ponte in Tribeca, as well as several of his own restaurants until teaming up with childhood friend Jason Weiner to open Almond. Almond proudly supports local growers and features them on their website.


Soft Shell Crab special this summer!


Classic Almond dishes include Steamed Black Mussels with Shallots and White Wine and Roast Chicken with Hand-Crushed Potatoes and Natural Jus, while a list of plats du jour range from Roasted Whole Fish and red Wattle Porkchop to Rack of Lamb.

The thoughtful wine list, handpicked by co-owner Eric Lemonides, offers an affordable selection of wines by the glass or bottle from regions across Long Island, France and California. A specialty cocktail list, New York state craft beer selection, and raw bar selections are all available at the restaurant’s spacious 20-seat bar.

Private dining spaces are perfect for larger parties and the European-style billiards room adds to the restaurants charm.
