UPDATED, 11:26 a.m., April 2, 2021: LT Burger will open a second Hamptons location just in time for the summer season.

The restaurant chain, created by chef Laurent Tourondel, signed a lease at 115 Main Street in Westhampton, according to the building’s owner. The 2,400-square-foot space is slated to open in May.

Tourondel has two other restaurants in Sag Harbor — LT Burger and Sag Pizza — along with a several eateries in New York, Miami, London and other locations.

The 6,400-square-foot Main Street property traded hands in 2019, with current owners Stephen Matri and Lance Falow picking it up for $3 million. They’re now in the process of renovating and rebuilding the property.

“It’s going to be truly the center of town and activity,” Falow said.

LT Burger did not respond to a request for comment.

While restaurants in the city have faced more stringent Covid restrictions during the pandemic — they were not allowed to operate at 50 percent capacity until March — eateries in the rest of the state have been operating at the half capacity for months.

As a result, a handful of New York city restaurants have migrated out east, following the renters and buyers that relocated to the Hamptons.

Café Boulud, Carbone and Il Buco have established pick-up or delivery services on the East End, and city bars Dante and Death & Co. have also set up shop there.
