When the inevitable craving for frites and Sancerre hits this summer, make haste to EHP Hospitality Group’s newest venture, Enchanté, in Southampton village. There, you’ll be transported to an airy yet intimate scene that marries the cozy charm of a Parisian brasserie with the ease of the south of France. Marked in what will surely become their signature orange-accented interior, the restaurant maintains historic elements of the property’s predecessor, Red Bar.
After a long-awaited announcement of what would take the beloved eatery’s place, local diners will be comforted to find a new and improved marble-topped bar and the original window- clad dining room, with coveted outdoor space to boot. Hodie L. Clark of HLC Creative Group opted for brass accents (à la midcentury France) along with globe pendant lights and bistro chairs. On the menu, you’ll find the classics, like French onion soup, escargots and salade lyonnaise.
The restaurant’s name translates to “enchanted to meet you,” and that is undoubtedly what patrons will be feeling after their first dining experience on Hampton Road.
