Bobby Flay’s East Hampton Haven
Bobby Flay and his wife, actress Stephanie March, kept summer entertaining in mind when they purchased and decorated their dream home in the Hamptons, according to Elle Décor. The home, nestled in the woods of East Hampton, was created to be "comfortable" and "functional." Flay commented in Hamptons Magazine, "There’s nothing in the house that’s supposed to make people go, 'Wow,' except for the kitchens." But upon closer inspection, Flay’s two ideally equipped kitchens more than wow — they stun.
Although he left everything but the kitchen design to his wife and decorator Tom Delavan, Flay knew what he had in mind when it came to the place where he works his magic: the kitchen. Flay’s indoor kitchen full of Viking appliances has a working grill accompanied by "a commercial 10-burner stove, two ovens, a fryer, a griddle, and a salamander, along with seating that includes two café tables and a farm table." Flay tells Hamptons Magazine, "Inside it’s like a little French café, with a giant marble island and a café area with some tables and rattan chairs. Then you walk through a big door into the outdoor kitchen area. When it’s all open, you feel like you’re walking through a restaurant."
Just as fancy as the indoor kitchen, the outdoor kitchen is furnished with "a brick pizza oven, a charcoal grill, a Viking gas grill, four burners, and a refrigeration system." Adjoining the outdoor kitchen is the outdoor dining table, set up underneath an enchanting vine-decorated pergola.
Flay, who is known for throwing quite the Thanksgiving feast and has his own family members begging for an invite, comments, "We had 50 people show up for turkey in Amagansett this past holiday anyway. They followed us out here… I stand at my kitchen island from the minute I get out here to the minute I leave." With his two new dream kitchens, I don’t think Flay is going to take a seat any time soon.
