Demarchelier, originally hailing from Manhattan’s Upper East Side, has opened in Greenport. The restaurant is currently taking up residence at The Menhaden hotel on Front Street, just steps away from the North Ferry to Shelter Island.

The French bistro is well fitted for the seaside town Greenport. Lunch and dinner are served with social distancing in mind. Both indoor and outdoor seating is available.


Everything on the menu is exceptional, and the restaurant has that perfect balance of being couple and family friendly. This family-owned restaurant also has some of the kindest staff around.

Demarchelier in Greenport is led by siblings Emily and Benjamin Demarchelier, who are continuing the family legacy out east. Their family’s restaurant in NYC originally opened in 1978.

The Menu

The menu incorporates traditional bistro fare like Endives, Apples & Roquefort Salad; Smoked Salmon & Avocado Tartine, Croque Madame; and Eggs Benedict for brunch.
