If fans of grilling thought outdoor cooking couldn’t get much better, GrillHampton is about to elevate it. The inaugural event, held July 12 (8 P.M.) at Sayre Park in Bridgehampton, puts a competitive spin on cooking with fire. Hosted by Geoffrey Zakarian, chef and partner of The Lambs Club and The National, the celebration involves two teams—one from New York, one from the East End—of accomplished local chefs. Vying for two awards, from the official judges and from the (lucky) crowd, the likes of Elizabeth Karmel (Hill Country in New York), Chris Santos (Stanton Social in New York) and Colin Ambrose (Estia’s Little Kitchen in Sag Harbor) will square off.

“I can say that these chefs will be creative while still sticking to the classics,” says Zakarian. “There will be great steaks, burgers and ribs, but think deconstructed steaks from Delmonico’s of Southampton and dressed-up burgers like the French-onion-soup burger from chef Paul Denamiel.”

GrillHampton takes place the night before Dan’s Taste of Two Forks, a popular event featuring more than 40 restaurants from the Hamptons showing off their culinary prowess. But for that one Friday night, it will be all about the undeniable allure of the grill.

“It’s man versus nature,” says Zakarian. “It’s just in us, and it allows you to feel formidable!” Tickets, $115; Sayre Park, 156 Snake Hollow Rd., Bridgehampton;
