Bobby Van's Steakhouse Restaurant Review: The rhythm of the piano player for whom the restaurant is named remains at this swinging American steakhouse's Bridgehampton outpost, with all the class and atmosphere of the New York City original. Come nighttime, the bar scene is alive with locals and Manhattan moguls alike. In the summer high season, reservations for dinner are a must, and understandably so: with wicker chairs, huge bay windows opening on Main Street and a laid-back atmosphere, it's all but made for that time of year. Lighter fare is served at the bar as well, so you’ll be sure to find something to your liking, even if you can’t get a seat with a view. The plus-size porterhouse, always properly cooked, will satisfy your inner carnivore, but the fragrant steamed mussels cooked in a parsley and white wine broth, while much more delicate, are equally satisfying. The menu is topped off with a variety of classic seafood options like clams on the half-shell, shrimp cocktail and fried calamari. You’ll also find steakhouse classics like filet, sirloin, veal chop and all the traditional sides. Keep an eye out for the list of specials on the blackboard.
