The Springs Tavern
15 Fort Pond Blvd., East Hampton
We’re all about summertime casual, which is why we like this cozy, American gastropub, located in the building that once housed Wolfie’s Tavern. It’s the perfect place to grab a (veggie) burger and a beer and watch the game on one of the many TVs. Bonus: There's a good live band lineup for most of the summer.

Reformation Beach House

If you're looking for a little white dress or bohemian summery blouse, look no further.

The collection is made with efficient, eco-friendly technologies and practices, yet each piece is feminine and unique–with an appealing price point.
EMP Summer House
341 Pantigo Rd., East Hampton
Chef Daniel Humm’s (also of Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park) die-hard fans can follow his talents to East Hampton this summer and dine at his much more laid back pop-up. Expect fresh, local American fare that speaks to the season, including a traditional lobster boil, fried chicken feast, and a la carte options. Housed in a massive farmhouse, the space has a large indoor dining room, along with tented area, picnic tables, and games across the backyard. No doubt with all the early buzz this winter, this reservation will be a tricky one to snag this summer. Photos: American Express.

The epitome of the neighborhood bookstore, BookHampton has been a presence in East Hampton in various incarnations for more than 40 years. Now, thanks to a new owner and a top-to-bottom renovation last summer, it’s introducing even more titles and space for special literary events and guest speakers. The generous teen-lit section is a gold mine for keeping the 12-to-18 set occupied.
55 Main St., East Hampton
Stephanie von Watzdorf founded her travel-inspired, “gypsy-meets-jet-set” lifestyle brand, Figue—named for the fig, her favorite fruit from her native Italy—after graduating from Parsons The New School for Design and working with fashion powerhouses like Giorgio Armani and Yves Saint Laurent. The result: a full range of separates and accessories tinged with various cultural references that somehow manage to form a totally cohesive collection. The East Hampton location is actually Figue's only brick-and-mortar outside NYC—and while it's easy to find them online, it's worth popping into the shop, too, as they usually reserve a few exclusive pieces for in-person customers.
20 Main St., East Hampton
Considering how very Hamptons-appropriate their shoes are (colorful pom-pom flats, neutral stilettos, espadrilles, etc.), it's pretty surprising that Aauazzura hasn't had a pop-up shop in the Hamptons until now. In addition to the shoes, the interior is every bit the summery shop—dark wood floors, bright white furniture, and hot-pink floral wallpaper.
East Hampton Grill
99 N. Main St., East Hampton
Open since 2011, this restaurant has become a year-round local staple, mainly due to the fact that it’s a departure from the bright, beach-y look that occupies most of the Hamptons. Instead—outfitted in dark wood, with bookshelves dividing the dining room space—East Hampton Grill has the vibe of a neighborhood tavern. Plus, the food is just great, if admittedly indulgent: for one, the “Heavenly Biscuits” with rosemary, butter, and honey are hard to pass up.
