Topping Rose House Restaurant

Bridgehampton, New York

Working with Topping Rose House owners Bill Campbell and Simon Critchell along with acclaimed chef Tom Colicchio, Champalimaud created a modern, welcoming restaurant space at the heart of the historic 1842 estate, now transformed into a full-service destination inn. 

Inspired by Colicchio's farm-to-table culinary philosophy, the 50-seat restaurant has wide-planked wood floors, black lacquered Windsor chairs, and milk glass and iron drum pendants that recall early American style and craftsmanship. A photograph by local artist Clifford Ross is the focal point of the dining room, while the L-shaped bar is punctuated by a high-gloss lacquered aqua wall and a video art by avant-garde multimedia artist Robert Wilson. Minimalist, high bar chairs in calfskin complement the elegant, dark wood bar and leather barrel chairs, and wooden tables invite comfortable lounging next to two original fireplaces.
