Establishment neighborhood
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.
Figue (Closed)
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.
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.
