HATCH
240 26th St., Brentwood
Every pregnancy is unique, but every pregnant person has had one shared experience: The moment you realize you can no longer get away with wearing your regular jeans. (Skirts, jumpsuits, and dresses are next.) HATCH in Brentwood is the next natural stop for many of the local women we know. The airy, achingly pretty store is lined with racks of easy, floaty dresses, some of the best bump-friendly denim, and everything else in between—all of which is cut to accommodate a woman’s body both during and long after pregnancy. In other words, these are things you won’t want to get rid of as soon as the aforementioned jeans start to fit again. And like the Manhattan store, there’s also a cravings bar with pickles, ice cream, and more. Cliché? Maybe. But we’ve yet to meet a mama-to-be who’d turn down a good dill.
Hudson Grace
225 26th St., Brentwood
The original Hudson Grace is in San Francisco: There, Monelle Totah (Williams-Sonoma, Banana Republic) and Gary McNatton (Gap), turn out a very specific, pristine, and simple sensibility, evidenced by clean-lined pitchers, sturdy cutting boards, and a house line of linen napkins. They are now three boutiques strong in California—including one in the Montecito Country Mart—where you’ll find the same mix, including Cire Trudon candles, white lacquer salt mills, and Laguoile corkscrews.
Brentwood Country Mart
225 26th St., Brentwood
COVID-19 Update: Open for food pickup, delivery, and virtual shopping experiences. This 1950s old-time country mart got a renovation and restoration about a decade ago. Besides being home to goop Lab, there are a spate of other great boutiques (Jenni Kayne, Turpan, Broken English, adorable kids store Poppy). It also wins huge points with little ones for its interior food court, where you'll find the world's best chicken (Reddi Chick), burgers (Barney's), and tacos (Frida). There's also an old-school candy shop (Edelweiss), an ice cream parlor (Sweet Rose Ice Cream), a bookstore (Diesel), a toy store (Toy Crazy), and a mini carousel. We, however are addicted to the delicious salads and seared salmon at the mart's restaurant. Always buzzing at lunch, the space grows quiet in the early afternoon and is a hidden gem for for a relaxed glass of wine and, in the absence of a friend, your computer for company as you blast through a stuffed inbox. COVID-19 Disclaimer: We are working hard to keep our listings as up to date as possible (deliveries, outdoor dining, etc.), but given the evolving nature of local COVID-19 restrictions, we recommend double-checking…
