Santa’s Coming to Bistro 72 and He’s Bringing Brunch

Waffles at Bistro 72

Don’t miss our special Holiday Brunch with Santa every Sunday between November 27 and December 18 from 11am to 3pm. Join us for a delicious à la carte brunch and bring the kids for a complimentary photo with Santa! Once you’ve satisfied your hunger, explore the East End and take part in these family-friendly, winter activities:

~Live Music at Greenport Harbor Brewing Company

The East End may be known for its wineries, but there are many good local breweries in the area. Formed in 2008 inside an old firehouse, Greenport Harbor Brewing Company offers tastings 12PM – 6PM on Sundays and 12PM-7PM on Fridays and Saturdays. Most afternoons, you can also grab a pint, sit down and enjoy live music. On the day of our inaugural Santa Brunch, local musician Marty Attridge will be playing live from 2pm – 5pm. For updates on more musical performances, check their Facebook page.

~Go ice skating

Established in 1828, the Village of Greenport’s Ice Skating Rink in Mitchell Park offers an inexpensive way to enjoy the cold weather. It’s open 11am – 5pm on Sundays, weather permitting. Admission is only $10 for adults and $7 for kids under 18. If you need skates, rentals are only $5. Plus, novices can get a training bar for $5 or experts can sharpen their skates for the same price. Be sure to call ahead, (631) 477-2200, ext. 2 to check if they are open.

~Visit the Long Island Aquarium

If you’re looking to stay warm, see the wide of array of sea creatures at the Long Island Aquarium. They have tons of events ranging from Sea Lion shows, Penguin feedings, and even a Sand Shark lagoon talk. Learn about all the animals in each exhibit, many of which have been caught locally in the Peconic Bay or Shinnecock Bay. If it happens to be the week of your birthday, you can get free admission in honor of the Aquarium’s 15th anniversary. Otherwise, tickets will cost $21 for children, $27.95 for adults, and $23.50 for seniors. Children 2 and under get in free.

If you get tired from all that adventure, stay at the Hotel Indigo and enjoy the East End at a leisurely pace. The hotel will be offering free gift cards to Tanger Outlets and Bistro 72 if you stay between 11/27 and 12/22 (while supplies last.) Learn more about this deal here.

If you don’t stay over, we’ll see you at Santa Brunch! Call Bistro 72 at 631-369-3325 for reservations.

The Key To A Worry-Free Thanksgiving: Bistro 72

thanksgiving-roast

Start a new tradition this Thanksgiving. Come on over to Bistro 72 and enjoy our Thanksgiving Prix Fixe Menu. Skeptical? Here’s a few reasons why we think celebrating Turkey Day with us is the best choice:

  • There’s something for everyone

Our Thanksgiving Prix Fixe menu has 3 courses and many different options. To start, you’ll have a choice between a seasonal squash soup and two different salads made with organic and local ingredients. For your main dish, we’ll have the standard T-giving fixins–turkey, cooked to perfection, buttery mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, a hearty stuffing and a sweet, yet tart cranberry compote. Finally, for dessert, you’ll have your choice of Pumpkin Pie, a Flourless Chocolate Gateau or a Caramel Apple Cobbler à la Mode. If you’re interested in going beyond the Prix Fixe menu, we’ll also have our full selection seasonal cocktails available at the bar. Try complementing your meal with a Caramel-Infused Apple Mule or Winter Pear cocktail. With all these options, we’ll have something for even the most pickiest of eaters and drinkers.

  • No cleaning

No dirty dishes. No pre-guest cleaning. No waiting hand and foot on relatives. Celebrate your turkey day with us and we’ll be the ones taking care of all that. Our immaculate dining room, spotless silverware and attentive staff will be ready to handle your grumpiest relatives and spunky children. Bring the whole family!

  • Leave the cooking to the pros

Our chefs are all professionally trained. They know what taste good and how to whip up an amazing meal. This means you won’t have to worry about guests commenting on your cooking…and you won’t have to worry about being forced to sample your more culinarily-challenged relatives’ potluck dishes.

  • You can invite as many people as you’d like

Accommodating 50 guests in a house that’s only used to 5 can be a challenge. Luckily, our dining room has plenty of seating. Just make sure you call ahead and make a reservation with us.

  • No grocery shopping

You won’t have to brave the grocery store lines, fight for the last good turkey or worry about running out of stuffing. We’ll have enough for everyone and more.

Call us and make a reservation today: (631) 369-3325.

Happy Holidays,

Bistro 72

One Night Only: Steaks, Cigars and Whiskey

15025426_1515192108494524_5835632335576030946_o

This year is almost over– bring yourself and a friend to our Steak & Cigar Dinner to celebrate! You’ll get a delicious Prix Fixe, 4-course Porterhouse Steak Dinner, and more importantly, you’ll finish off the evening with two local favorites: a Hampton Cigar and a glass of Widow Jane Bourbon Whiskey.

Widow Jane, distilled here in New York, is looking to unseat more traditionally popular Kentucky bourbon whiskeys. Kentucky whiskeys get their unique, beloved taste from the minerals in Kentucky limestone. Luckily, the Rosendale Limestone used for creating Widow Jane’s whiskey contains even more of the beneficial minerals that make a good bourbon. This leaves us an award-winning whiskey with unparalleled flavor and aroma– the perfect post-dinner reward.

We also enlisted the Hampton Cigar Company, based in Westhampton, to cap off this feast. Formed in 2014, they design special cigars to simplify the unnecessarily convoluted process of cigar-buying. All their cigars are the same square shape and size. They come finished with an easily removable pigtail cap, so you don’t need to invest in a cigar cutter. All you need to do is twist and pop off the cap and you’re ready to go. This simplicity doesn’t come at the cost of quality either. Each cigar is blended with the finest ingredients, crafted by hand in small batches and aged in a cedar tray.

If you’re ready for an unforgettable night, join us at Bistro72 on Thursday, November 17 at 6:30 PM and invite your friends. For reservations call 631-369-3325. If you can’t make this event, sign up for our email list for updates on the next event.

Cheers,

Bistro 72
