EaterHampton: Waiting for Blue Parrot, Rugosa Opening in Almoncello Space, and So Much More!

In conjunction with our restaurant-obsessed colleagues at Eater, here now, the latest dining and drinking news from the East End. As always, your tips are encouraged to Merci.

[The Blue Parrot, as espied on Memorial Day Weekend. So close. So far.]

EAST HAMPTON—Mystery continues to shroud the reopening of Blue Parrot, a.k.a The Greatest Restaurant Reopening of All-Time (take that, Le Cirque). Management has promised to be elusive when it comes to an opening date, but that hasn't stopped curious minds from wandering down the restaurant's alley. Investigating what looked like an open Blue Parrot last night, a Curbed Hamptons operative found an interesting sight. Christmas lights were on, music was playing, people were talking, and the kitchen was cooking, but the home of Killer Mexican still bore a sign turning people away. A menu tasting, perhaps? Were rumored investors Jon Bon Jovi and Renée Zellweger trying out the margarita recipes together? We can only hope, and wait. Updates, of course, are imminent. [EaterWire]

WAINSCOTT—At least the East End should get one new restaurant this weekend: Rugosa says it's set to open today in the old Almoncello space on Route 27. The concept here, from chef/owner Bill Mammes (ex-Maidstone Club) is New American, which could either be gorgeous or generic. Reports forthcoming. [Feed Me]

AMAGANSETT—Though word from construction workers last weekend raised hopes of the doors at NYC-transplant Mezzaluna Amg. opening as early as today, a call to the mothership brings this word: "Two weeks, two weeks." Sigh. [EaterWire]

SAG HARBOR—Lastly, here we have the first interior shot we've seen of Blue Sky, which opened its doors last weekend in the old Spinnaker's space. Carry on. [EaterWire]
