Dopo la Spiaggia
6 Bay St., Sag Harbor
In a shingled cottage on a leafy street in Sag Harbor directly facing the water, this little gem is one of our go-to Italian restaurants in the Hamptons. Sure, the setting is almost perfect (we love the tucked-away patio for alfresco dinner on warm evenings, and walks along the marina afterwards), but it’s really the food that keeps us coming back over and over again. The pasta dishes are almost without equal on the East End, and our favorites include the tagliolini (squid ink pasta with bay scallops, shrimp, calamari, chili, and tomatoes) and the ravioli with wild mushrooms and ricotta. It also happens to be our neighbor—the goop pop-up is right next door, for some pre- or post-lunch browsing.
goop Sag Harbor
4 Bay St., Sag Harbor
We’re back in town—Sag Harbor, to be exact. It’s our second Hamptons pop-up, and we’ve made over a traditional cottage with the help of designers Kate McCollough and Max Zinser. The result is goop’s version of the world’s chicest general store—a bright and beautiful place where you can find Prada bags, summer shoes (specifically selected by our team for the Hamptons), a freestanding Kohler bathtub full of G.Soak bath remedies, a goop-exclusive Cynthia Rowley collection of swimwear, and anything else you could possibly need for a perfect Hamptons summer. There’s more than just fashion and beauty, too: The store's garden will be stocked with freshly baked baguettes from Eli Zabar, plus potted herbs and ripe tomatoes, in case a sudden urge to have a picnic at the beach should strike.
1 Long Wharf, Sag Harbor
This popular French bistro brings its classics to Sag Wharf this summer.
Tracy Anderson at The Golden Pear Café
111 Main St., Sag Harbor
Anything Tracy Anderson does, we jump on the bandwagon. Our go-to trainer has drastically improved our lives and our health–so naturally we're excited about her latest collaboration with Golden Pear Cafe. This summer, Tracy has curated a menu of smoothies available at all four cafe locations, including Southampton, East Hampton, Sag Harbor and Bridgehampton. Organic, gluten and fructose-free, each blend is mixed with her patented protein powder, ideal for pre/post workout nutrition and detoxing.
Lulu Kitchen & Bar
126 Main Street, Sag Harbor
The leather chairs, exposed brick, and large wood burning oven make this a cozy spot to grab lunch or dinner. The menu focuses on local ingredients woven into new and classic European dishes like wood fired pizza, grilled fish, and organic roast chicken, all showcasing Chef Philippe Corbet's love for wood-burning cuisine.
AYR Beach House
25 Madison St., Sag Harbor
True to its name (AYR is short for All Year Round), this versatile collection offers clean-lined pieces perfect for any season. Founders Jac Cameron and Maggie Winter created the line to bring a mix of high-quality and affordability to the market. We're partial to the easy linen dresses, structured wrap coats, and (we must say) some of the best-fitting, perfectly broken-in jeans around.
8 Wharf St., Sag Harbor
Known for their generously sized waffle cones, this old-fashioned ice cream shop is situated right on the water in Sag Harbor. If you're on your way back into the city from the Hamptons, it's likely that your GPS will send you in Big Olaf's direction in an attempt to avoid traffic, which conveniently makes for a happy pit stop. Just note that this is a cash-only joint.
Jayson Home (Closed)
3 Madison St., Sag Harbor
Chicago-based furniture/décor/botany institution Jayson Home has stayed put in its home town for the entirety of its existence, which is why its summer pop-up shop in Sag Harbor is a really big deal. The historic 18th-century building which houses the jewel-toned tufted couches, beechwood coffee tables, stacks of candles, and piles of plush pillows, used to be the town liquor store, and a whaling supply shop before that. We especially like the club room in the back—with its midnight-blue walls and gilded accents, it feels refreshingly un-Hamptons (in the best possible way).
Provisions Natural Foods Market & Organic Cafe
7 Main St., Sag Harbor
Provisions has been in business for more than 30 years, meaning the place definitely has that old-school health store vibe. They've got a great selection of organic and non-GMO snacks and basics, plus a produce section that's exclusively organic (it also sells plenty of local produce, if you're in a pinch and can't make it to the farmer's market). The cute cafe in the front serves veggie-heavy sandwiches and wraps, Buddha bowls, and made-to-order smoothies.
Norma Jean Pilates
52 Main St., Sag Harbor
Hamptons local Hayley Thorpe's mat pilates, cardio, and Reformer classes were such a hit, she quickly outgrew her original studio. Now, Norma Jean Pilates has expanded to become a boutique health club, though the vibe is a bit more indie than your typical sweaty gym—expect rotating works of art, sheepskin poufs, two open fireplaces, and plenty of quiet nooks for reading or relaxing after class. In addition to pilates classes, members have access to the NJP run club, dance club, and an open kitchen stocked with all the smoothie essentials.
