Bistro Ete

Water Mill

This coastal French gem in Water Mill boasts fare by chef Arie Pavlou, a Cypriot who studied traditional French cuisine under two star Michelin chef Philippe Da Silva. The menu is a blend of his Mediterranean and French roots with classic options like escargot and pan seared foie gras as well as paella and steak frites with garlic-parsley butter, potato poppers and mixed local greens. Click to taste


Sushi by Bou


The City’s big Omakase spot has ventured out East for the summer. Located at Jue Lan Club, the new location will host lunch and dinner Wednesday through Sunday and feature a patio sushi bar for lunch with a view. The one hour dinner seatings include 15 pieces and a fresh seasonal hand roll. If you want that rolled fresh from the mastermind behind the concept, chef David Bouhadana will personally be on hand on Saturday and Sunday nights. Click to taste


Tate’s Bake Shop


Satisfy your sweet tooth with dessert at this classic bake shop. While the cookies are an all-time favorite, the brand has made the inevitable expansion to cakes, pies, brownies—any baked good you can think of. Looking for a treat perfect for a summer day? Mix it up with a Tatewich, made with vanilla ice cream stuffed between two fish baked Tate’s cookies. Click to taste


Pollock-Krasner House

East Hampton 

Once home to the iconic abstract painter Jackson Pollock and his wife, fellow artist Lee Krasner, this museum takes its visitors back in time to see how the pair lived and created art. Their home is still fully furnished from when Krasner passed away in 1984, complete with Pollock’s extensive jazz record collection, their private library and—of course—pieces of their work on display. But the truly special spot is the artist’s studio, where the floors are still pocked with paint splatters from some of Pollock’s most famous pieces. Click to visit


Stephen Talkhouse


It would be a dream to see the likes of Paul McCartney play at an intimate venue. For a lucky audience at the Stephen Talkhouse one night, they did. This Amagansett institution has been host to the Hamptons music scene since the late 80s, featuring dozens of rock and roll hall-of-famers throughout the years. Don’t  miss acts coming up like Judy Collins and Joshua Radin. Click to visit


Topping Rose House


Situated in the heart of the East End, this restored historical home-turned-luxury hotel will whisk guests away to a true Hamptons weekend. The property is within walking distance to Bridgehampton boutiques and close proximity to the South Fork’s gorgeous beaches—not that you’ll want to leave this piece of paradise. Enjoy a night in one of the 16 guest rooms or six beautiful suites and have dinner at the restaurant with farm-to-table fare. Or if you want to venture out, bikes and Lexus cars are there to rent at your convenience. Click to visit


A Butler’s Manor


Nestled on an acre of English gardens, this beautiful and historic 1860 colonial inn easily puts visitors in a vacation state of mind. There’s a sparkling full-sized saltwater swimming pool and a rose garden that serves up an incredible breakfast featuring the likes of banana-stuffed French toast and fresh made frittatas. Click to visit


East Hampton Art House Bed and Breakfast

East Hampton

This B&B is more luxury villa than cozy hideaway, located in the historic artists’ community of Clearwater Beach. Start your day with a complimentary gourmet breakfast, spend an afternoon by the pool or head to the beach just a short stroll away. And in the true spirit of an “Art House,” resident artists and proprietors Rosalind Brenner and Michael Cardacino have their studios on the property for visitors to have a peek at their latest works. Click to visit
