New in the Hamptons: Etiquette Montauk at Ruschmeyer’s

I’m so excited to announce the newest collaboration in Montauk, just in time for the Fourth of July, Etiquette Montauk at Ruschmeyer’s.


The brainchild of nightclub owner Richie Hosein (AM Southampton, Red Rabbit Club, Playboy Club) and Ruschmeyer’s Enzo Lentini (formerly of Il Mulino), Etiquette Montauk is the new restaurant concept for outdoor dining at Ruschmeyer’s.


An immersive dining experience, guests can expect a multi-faceted, theatrical show equipped with interactive storytelling, light shows, and thematic soundscapes. The goal of Etiquette Montauk is to provide a fun, elevated dining experience for that guest who has matured from the regular hospitality scene.


The menu is curated by Executive Chef Giuseppe Lentini (formerly Elio’s Upper East Side, Grissini in Englewood Cliff, NJ, Lentini’s Upper East Side) and features a myriad of Mediterranean dishes with deep Italian roots.


Etiquette Montauk opens this Friday, July 3rd, and will run throughout the summer 2020 season.

Nightclub owner Richie Hosein partners with Ruschmeyer’s Enzo Lentini, formerly of Il Mulino for a new and exciting program for the 2020 season.


As we enter the peak of Hampton’s summer season, a new hotspot is being added to the mix of restaurants braving the Summer 2020 season. With social distancing restrictions prohibiting typical nightlife, Ruschmeyer’s has collaborated with entrepreneur Richie Hosein to help keep guests entertained and reinforce its reputation as one of Montauk’s premier destinations.


Etiquette Montauk, the new restaurant concept for outdoor dining at Ruschmeyer’s, will be kicking things off on Friday, July 3rd. The concept is an immersive dining experience featuring a multi-faceted theatrical show. The show will use interactive storytelling, light shows, and thematic soundscapes to create a multi-sensory, gastronomic experience that will evoke emotions and memories that go well beyond the food.


Hosein has built a reputation for unique hospitality experiences, exceeding expectations in both service and entertainment with every project he’s involved in. This has been proven true time and time again at his wildly popular Hampton’s nightclub AM Southampton and the NYC Meatpacking District hotspot Red Rabbit Club. Hosein’s hospitality management company reinvented the infamous Playboy Club into a modern restaurant experience with reservations booked out weeks in advance. Celebrities who have been known to frequent Hosein’s venues include Michael Jordan, Saquon Barkley, Gwen Stefani, and more.


The menu, curated by Executive Chef Giuseppe Lentini and Enzo Lentini of Ruschmeyer’s, is Mediterranean with deep Italian roots and boasts impressive champagne and wine selection.  The dining area has 27 tables spaced 15-feet apart ensuring that social-distancing guidelines are enforced.

Both Enzo and Giuseppe have been in the hospitality industry for years. As Enzo was serving as general manager at Ruschmeyer’s he brought his brother in due to high demand. Before Ruschmeyer’s, Giuseppe was the opening executive chef of Elio’s on the Upper East Side for 15-years.  He also served as executive chef Grissini Restaurant in Englewood Cliffs, NJ and Lentini’s on the Upper East Side alongside his brother Enzo as general manager. Enzo also served as the general manager of both Il Mulino Wainscott and TribeCa.
