Everyone goes to the Hamptons for different reasons—for some, it’s all about seeing and being seen, and for others it’s about flip-flops and friends. I tend to go for a mix of both. When you work in the city all week long, a sand and sun weekend is the perfect refresher.
Here’s a list of my favorites:
…to the North Fork Table & Inn lunch truck. One of my favorite restaurants out here is now on wheels! It’s laidback and delicious. (Southold)
…walk along Main Street, and of course, stop into our store! Having one of my stores next to Sant Ambroeus is dangerous—I can never say no. (Southampton)
…the vast range of art at the Parrish Art Museum. From early 19th-century landscapes to Impressionist paintings, it definitely inspires. (Water Mill)
…at Shagwong Restaurant. This was opened by a local couple in the ‘60s. The environment has remained warm, inviting and easygoing. The Peter Beard photos on the walls are my faves. (Montauk)
…a lobster roll and steamers at Duryea’s. Take an afternoon drive out to Montauk and enjoy no-fuss fresh fish with an incredible view. (Montauk)
…dinner at The Palm in East Hampton. It’s a classic.
…for high-end, mostly European, furnishings at Jangeorge. (Sag Harbor)
…at Tiina the Store. The chicest mix of Scandinavian design. I’m in love with all of the indigo kids clothes.(Amagansett)
…for everything from quilts to paintings to handwoven bags at Bloom, a small store masquerading as a cottage in Sag Harbor.
…gifts and home décor at HomeNature. I keep finding coral and mineral pieces there, which I’m obsessed with. (Southampton)
…utilitarian tote bags, exclusive to our South and East Hampton stores. Perfect for the Jitney!
