For starters, we stayed in Sag Harbor at the recently renovated and refurbished Baron’s Cove. Overlooking the harbor, this jewel of a hotel/restaurant is a short walk to Main Street and boasts a storied history. Rooms have chic furnishings and there is a pool, which is such a plus, especially if you are traveling with children. They have beach passes and chairs/umbrellas/towels for you to borrow, which made it so easy to spend the morning at the beach. The bar and restaurant were hopping and there is live entertainment each day, as well as a small fitness center and complimentary bikes to ride.
For delicious Mexican food in a relaxed environment, just stop into the Blue Parrot, which is in the alley behind Ralph Lauren. Recommended by a friend who knows how much I love tex-mex, this was a home run!
The Topping Rose House is at the top of everyone’s list, so I was thrilled to finally enjoy dinner there. Jean George recently took over the restaurant and his farm-to-table formula is clearing working. The place was PACKED!The Hamptons are really a place for everyone…whether you want to keep it casual and get to bed early or go for the glamour and stay out all night. I’m definitely more the former than the latter, but I was happy to see that the Hamptons are still one of my very favorite places to be. And, I always love to share my favorites with you!
Wishing you a wonderful last week of August!
