KDHamptons chats with Bryan and Alex to hear what’s on their radar for summer 2019:

Best Breakfast spot?
“For a casual and quick breakfast, Goldberg’s is the best. They have homemade/fresh bagels daily. They also make incredible deli sandwiches.  Can’t go wrong! If you’re looking for a sit-down breakfast with a server, Babette’s in East Hampton is really great. They make their own blood orange juice and use this for their mimosas as well.” -Alex Goldstein

Favorite beach? 
“My favorite beach in all of the Hamptons is a private beach on Dune Road in West Hamptons.  All the beaches in The Hamptons are beautiful and offer a peaceful escape.” – Bryan Fedner

Do you provide a pass?
“Several of StayMarquis’ properties include beach passes for the guests only if the home owner is offering their car with the stay.  Usually home renters go to local beaches that provide day passes.” -Alex Goldstein

Lunch spot?
“For a casual/quick lunch, Golden Pear cafe is perfect. They are located throughout the Hamptons and are always serving quality product. They source most of their products locally. They have unique sandwiches and daily specials. My favorite is the “Southampton” sandwich that is made on fresh ciabatta bread with turkey, brie cheese, lettuce, tomato and homemade honey mustard. I usually get it with a side of their homemade purple & green cole slaw. It’s amazing! Sag Town Coffee in Sag Harbor is a great spot for lunch. Delicious coffee and Acai bowls here, as well as great lunch dishes with plenty of seating inside and outside. Oh! And free wifi there!” – Alex Goldstein

Sunset cocktails?
“The Surf Lodge, Crows News, Navy Beach, Sunset Beach, and Gosman’s Dock are 5 spots that have an unparalleled view of the sunset, every single night. You can never go wrong at any of these spots for a sunset view. Montauket serves drinks, and the other 4 venues are full restaurants where you can sit and eat a delicious meal while watching the sun go down.” – Bryan Fedner.

Favorite restaurants?

Southampton, 75 Main
Wainscott – Il Mulino
Bridgehampton – Almond Restaurant, Elaia Estiatoria (Greek)
Sag Harbor – Sen Sag Harbor (Japanese), Tutto il Giorno (the best pasta and wine), Lulu’s Kitchen (best roasted cauliflower).
East Hampton – Highway (below), The Palm, Citta Nuova, East Hampton Grill, Moby’s are some of my favorites;  Also Bostwicks will be opening at its old outpost this month on 3 Mile Harbor Road, which is a local and Hampton favorite for the best raw bar and seafood for many years now.

Montauk – Scarpetta Beach at Gurney’s Montauk (outdoor seating, ocean view, handmade pasta, fresh crudos), Harvest at Fort Pond, South Edison, Gig Shack for lunch

Where for nightlife?

“For a higher-end nightlife scene, AM Southampton, The Surf Lodge is a hot spot to go to, and also the Firepit at Gurney’s Montauk – they have DJ’s and bottle service.  For elevated drinks, Le Bilboquet on the water in Sag Harbor is always a place for good sight seeings.  For a more casual, hangout scene there is Baron’s Cover in Sag Harbor for drinks, Lulu’s Kitchen in Sag Harbor, and The Point Bar & Grill in Montauk. These are laid-back spots that are fun and serve a great food as well.” -Bryan Fedner
