Vanessa’s Top 5 Holiday Weekend Dining Spots

first_imgNavigate the Hamptons food scene like a pro with my five favorite spots, from the best in al fresco dining to where to sneak off in the early AM for the best coffee!The American HotelThis Sag Harbor restaurant has so much character and Old-World charm. The bar is one of my favorites in the Hamptons; I could sit there for hours mixing it up with talking to neighbors and reading. I love to drink tea and play backgammon in the lounge during the afternoons. It’s the perfect escape. I love to do brunch on the front patio.Jack’s Stir BrewThough most known for its Amagansett location, I frequent its Sag Harbor coffee shop as it is within easy walking distance to the Long Wharf and Marina. I always love to grab a honey latte or cappuccino before going sailing in the mornings, or after a workout at the nearby gym.SaazGulab Jamun from Saaz.This Southampton restaurant is one of my favorite places to stop on my way out from the city. Its lunch buffet is one of the best deals around. My favorites are the korma curry and the mango chicken. For dessert, order a traditional Indian gulab jamun, a spongy dessert soaked in rose scented syrup.Lulu Kitchen & BarGrilled Heirloom Cauliflower from Lulu Kitchen & Bar.I would come to dine at Lulu, in Sag Harbor, every day if I could. I love to sit next to its open kitchen that is anchored by the wood burning grill and oven. My top choices are Lulu’s grilled heirloom cauliflower, which can easily be split among four people, and the Trufata pizza.East Hampton GrillA staple dining spot in the Hamptons, it offers some of the best service and is highly regarded among residents and visitors alike. Go for its heavenly rosemary biscuits with honey, and for me, it is always a tossup between the barbecue ribs and crab cakes. Either way, I know I will have a substantial portion to take home with me for the next day.Vanessa Gordon is the founder and publisher of www.eastendtaste.com. Follow her @EastEndTaste.

The island was ravaged by Hurricane Irma Tuesday leaving an unconfirmed number of people dead as well as the island out of communication for a few days.A week Brison said sounds long but it is also due to Hurricane Jose which also poses a threat to the island. “If not for Jose…I would imagine we would have probably been able to get the airport back up and running by Saturday, Sunday however being that Jose will be entering the area from midday Saturday going into Sunday evening, now we have again a situation where the island needs to assess damage Sunday, Monday, start clean up on Tuesday, Wednesday, so it’s going to be another week before civil aviation can come in,” he explained. He said it is hoped that the airport can make some sort of exception for commercial airlines doing flights for relief purposes. Many airlines including Caribbean Airlines and Seaborne among other have expressed that they are ready and willing to come in.last_img read more
