Where to Eat During the Hamptons International Film Festival

The Hamptons International Film Festival is one of the most anticipated event of the year, and I cannot think of a better happening to pair with great food and conversation. While working about an appetite during each film screening, head over to any and all of the for restaurants I have curated that will be serving up some serious grub from a perfectly plated ahi tuna salad to a swoon-worthy charcuterie and cheese board.

Getaway to c/o The Maidstone

I had the pleasure of enjoying a lovely, whimsical stay at one of my favorite spots on the East End, c/o The Maidstone in the historic Village of East Hampton. This eclectic and chic boutique was just the spot my husband and I needed for a little ‘staycation’ with our daughter. The entire hotel is family-friendly and dog friendly, making it an ideal escape for everyone. Every aspect of The Maidstone and their restaurant, The Living Room Restaurant, is so inviting and stylish. You could spend your entire stay at the hotel and still not discover every chic and heartwarming Scandinavian detail this oasis has to offer.

We began our stay by checking in just after 3:30pm, set our belongings in our room, Josef Frank. Each of their 19 rooms, named after a Scandinavian celebrity or historical figure, is individually designed and has its own character and charm. Austrian-born Josef Frank was a renowned artist and architect who adopted Swedish citizenship in the latter half of his lifetime. The room features an original Josef Frank banana sofa by the bay window and a dressing room, a marble bathroom featuring a free-standing claw foot tub along with a separate rainfall shower, a King-size Hästens bed, luxurious toiletries by Malin + Goetz, and flat screen television with a DVD player.

Dinner at c/o The Maidstone

My family and I are no strangers to dining out at The Living Room Restaurant at c/o The Maidstone hotel in East Hampton. We come here not only because it is both child-friendly and dog friendly (we don’t have dogs at the moment yet we love to sit and ‘dine’ with them), but for the consistent, slow food, Scandinavian cuisine and hardworking, reliable staff members that perform to the highest of standards. During our dinner last week on a Tuesday evening, we never once had to ask for more water, bread, drinks, or to see a wine list. Our waiter was efficient and courteous as was the front desk staff.

Upon arrival, we chose to sit in the open lounge in the front of the hotel that offers beautiful views East Hampton’s historic district. Sarah was thrilled that she could play with the toys and books provided for children who stay and dine. She was occupied for over thirty minutes, or until our entrees arrived. Then Sarah came to sit and eat with us.

The Best Hamptons Lobster Rolls 2016

This summer, I combed the Hamptons to find the most mouthwatering lobster rolls that everyone must try before Labor Day. I tasted, I rated, and now after trying over two dozen lobster rolls this season from various restaurants and catering companies, I have carefully narrowed it down to seven. Below are my personal favorite signature seaside rolls stuffed with lobster meat from Sag Harbor to Montauk. Honorable mentions will also be noted.
