Dona Chai

If you admire the comforting taste of chai with its powerful essence of fresh spices, Dona Chai would surely become a staple in your kitchen. I first discovered Dona Chai just over a month ago. It was love at first sip, I just had to have more. It took quite a feat of strength to resist enjoying the chai, either iced or hot, on a daily basis. I prefer an iced chai during the mid afternoon anytime of year, but always appreciate a piping hot cup of chai in the morning.

Grindstone Coffee and Donuts

Grindstone Coffee & Donuts has satisfied Sag Harbor‘s long-term doughnut craving. After opening just over a month ago, Grindstone has spoiled the quaint, commuter village with a top quality sweet treat paired with exceptionally smooth San Francisco-based coffee. The business is thriving, with 1,300 doughnuts being churned out daily during the weekdays and over 2,200 purchased on Saturdays and Sundays.

The popularity of doughnuts created by owner, Kyle Shanahan, comes from a 48-hour-proof brioche-style dough that has a complex, yeasty flavor. Cage free eggs from upstate New York, Hudson valley five acres farms milk, unbromated and unbleached King Arthur are used to create the sweet and savory doughnuts.   View Post

Bay Burger Lobster Roll

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.

Tickle Water

Tickle Water is a gentle, fun sparkling water for kids and adults of all ages! I was instantly intrigued with the beverage when I discovered the company at a Kid Fest event at Guild Hall in East Hampton. At the event, I noticed how parents and children were very drawn to the adorable packaging and pint size 8 oz BPA free PET plastic cans specifically designed to fit children’s mini hands. Tickle Water comes in four flavors: Sparkling Water, Green Apple, Watermelon, and Cola.

RAND Luxury Brunch

On Saturday, July 23rd from 11am-3pm, RAND Luxury hosted a private brunch with Aston Martin at an estate for sale in Bridgehampton. The estate is listed with Real Estate Broker Gary DePersia of Corcoran. We could not have asked for more beautiful day. Though it was very warm out, the sky was crystal clear and we were able to cool off within the magnificent home for sale while taking a private tour. Perched atop a small hill, the masterfully built estate is anchored by a gambrel style traditional residence. While touring the home, my friend and I discovered a sprawling upstairs deckspace that offered unencumbered views of the farms, fields, and ocean in the far distance.

The delectable brunch spread included sandwiches, pastries, salads, pasta salads, vegetables, and fruit. Signature cocktails, champagne, rosé, and mixed drinks were offered to guests upon arrival and throughout the event.
