Claude’s at the Southampton Inn, within easy walking distance to the Village of Southampton‘s boutique shops, is open daily for breakfast and dinner, with brunch being served on the weekends. Executive Chef James Carpenter leads the kitchen with iconic year round favorites and local sourced seafood, with a focus on savory comfort dishes this winter.
We came in on a Sunday late morning just after 11am for brunch. A Sunday Brunch may include bottomless mimosas, Bloody Mary’s, Sangria, or Draft Beer for $25.
We started with cranberry and apple juice ($3) as well as freshly brewed coffee and cappuccinos ($5). Our first dishes ordered included Eggs Benedict: poached eggs, Canadian bacon, hollandaise, English muffin & brunch potatoes ($15); and Claude’s Winter Salad Bowl: shaved Brussels sprouts, kale, apples, dry cranberries, Gruyere cheese, and maple cider vinaigrette ($12). These two dishes complemented each other very well, as the Winter Salad was very light and refreshing, and the Eggs Benedict was a hearty, satisfying plate.
We finished brunch by splitting the Banana Stuffed Brioche French Toast: Nutella, pure Vermont maple syrup, topped with fresh berries ($13); and Steak & Eggs: grilled black Angus hanger steak, Vermont cheddar cheese, scrambled eggs, ratatouille & brunch potatoes ($20). These two particular dishes were top notch and so perfect to enjoy as we escaped the frigid temperature outside.
The brunch dishes rotate seasonally. Additional brunch menu items include a Sexy Grilled Cheese with Gruyere, Vermont cheddar, and provolone; a Chef’s Omelet served with brunch potatoes; and Smoked Salmon Benedict.
The restaurant is open seven days a week. A prix fixe menu is available all night Sunday through Thursday, and 5pm-6:30pm on Friday and Saturday. This Valentine’s Day, Claude’s is serving a special three-course prix fixe menu for $30 that also includes coffee or assorted fine teas.
