“My philosophy with food is use great ingredients, keep it simple, don’t overcharge, have fun service – and that’s what we’ve accomplished. In the Hamptons, we’re a really fun place – everybody out east knows we’re a fun place to come to.” [06:00]

“The great thing about BBQ is that everybody has an opinion and everybody loves it — and that’s exactly the bad thing about BBQ.” [19:00]
