Yes, this past May, Glass Onion has been open here a full year.
We are delighted to report that it’s a success. And we never could have done it without you.
Before we packed up and left New York, we’d been head chefs at two of the Hamptons’ highest-rated dining venues, Robert’s in Water Mill and World Pie in Bridgehampton. Yet we never stopped longing to open our own idea of a great restaurant someday. Our plan was to find the most promising, picturesque area in the country, where the populace might be varied, smart, good-looking, and hungry for the kind of genuine culinary thing we do.
2012 wasn’t the greatest year for risky moves. We’d have been happy to simply survive. But in fact we’ve flourished — and you made it happen. Whether you’re a local or just visiting, a regular or an occasional diner, we thank you for your ongoing patronage. We also salute the unique community of area farmers and artisans who supply us with the freshest local ingredients – all the sustainable essentials needed to keep the Glass Onion fulfilling the promise we made from the start: to provide simple, delicious meals (lunch & dinner), made strictly with fresh, prime-quality ingredients, expertly prepared (that’s us), promptly served, and courteously priced.
In the song of the same name, the Beatles sang:
“… Well, here’s another place you can go
Where everything overflows —
To see how the other half lives
Looking through a glass onion.”
We’re glad you’re now looking into the Glass Onion for yourself. When people like something, they keep coming back for more, and they pass the word around. So, eat a meal with us. We leave our fate to your good taste. If there’s anything you aren’t completely satisfied with, please tell us. Otherwise, tell the world!

P.S. To celebrate and make our American Dream-come-true complete, we went out and bought a home of our own here in beautiful, gracious Weaverville. How’s that for a commitment to fresh roots? – E & N
