You’ve got somewhere to be soon. We won’t give it away. But it rhymes with “Schmamptons.” So two big
developments on that front... One: UD’s The
Next Move: Hamptons is available today. And two: all the shiny new Hamptons stuff you need to know is
right below. See you in Schmontauk.
Last year, this space was Beaumarchais. Nothing wrong there. It just... wasn’t part UES steakhouse and
part Pink Elephant. Just a fact. But this—this is exactly that. Skylighted, white-tableclothed ribeye
joint by day and night, neon house of DJ-dom and bottles by night. It’s all about efficiency.
Delmonico’s of Southampton
You know Delmonico’s. Been doing surf and turf since the Van Buren administration. But now they’re
taking the show to Southampton with sundecks (yes, plural), fresh-caught halibut and scallops, and their own
vegetable garden. Because when you think Delmonico’s, it’s really the produce that sticks in your mind.
It’s a conundrum as old as right now—to do filet mignon in the whitewashed lounge or tuna tartare by the
pool. You could go either way, and, well... you could go either way at the BLT Steak opening up at the
Capri. Poolsteak: an idea whose time has come.
Madison & Main
Wood-grilled fresh lobster. Whole-belly Ipswich clams. Watermelon martinis. Two of those things, you’re
definitely not turning down. The other one: you’re... okay, fine, also not turning down. It’s vacation.
And all three are at this brick house of grilled deliciousness in Sag Harbor. Not judging pink drinks since
“Just where in the hell can I meet a Swiss woman and get some gazpacho and bocadillos?” is a sentence
you’ll never have to utter. Because we’ve got your answer right here in the form of this Swiss-run
takeout spot. Think beef bourguignon and flan. Just basic takeout stuff.
Topping Rose House
Last year, Tom Colicchio took this 170-year-old Greek Revival mansion and built it into a hotel and
restaurant with its own farm and a holistic wellness center. Only thing was, the hotel part took a little
longer than expected. But now it’s open. Good things: meet those who wait.
Red Hook Lobster + Sweet ’tauk
In a recent survey of people who are you, it was found that the weighty lobster rolls of Red Hook Lobster
Pound and fresh-squeezed lemonade of Sweet ’tauk were both deemed highly desirable. In related news, both
are happening at this place. Score one for fake surveys.
Morning swims in rough chop. Working out twice a day. Lying about doing both of those things. Being in the
Hamptons is tough. You need something healthy. Like cold-pressed juices from this spot, right next
to Barry’s Bootcamp. The perfect alibi.
