Hamptons Happenings: News around Town

Hamptons Happenings: News around Town

There are so many new things happening in the Hamptons…much has been in the news already, but then there are the lingering rumors that have been circulating and little birdies have shed some light on those rumors that seem to plague small towns.


  • Harbor Market in Sag Harbor…I was originally told they were planning on opening in late February. I stopped by last week and I see that progress is moving quickly on the total rebuild inside and it looks beautiful. There are some issues that need to be resolved with the village and the neighbors, so unfortunately it looks more like an April opening. I can wait they will have artisan brick oven pizza….yummy…(.hint…hint butternut squash with pancetta and fresh mozzarella)

  • Doppio Sag Harbor….I have asked repeatedly are they re-opening in Sag Harbor and my source assures me they are coming back. It has been rumored that they have not received approval for a brick oven or outdoor seating. I am anxious to see what happens with them this summer. I was really hoping when they took over they would maintain the Madison & Main crowd, but sadly that did not happen.
  • Ideal Stationary.….after years on Main Street, owners have decided to retire and close up the store. Since they own the property they will leasing and it has been rumored that Henry Lehr will be moving into that spot. Henry Lehr currently has a location on Newtown Lane in East Hampton, are they closing that location or opening up a second location in Sag Harbor. I called to get a response but I was told “no response”….hmmmm it is a wait and see for now…..
  • The vacant space that once occupied the Village Cleaners 3 years ago….has been cleared out and I was told today that a new business is moving in April 1st 2015. It has been rumored that Shoe-Inn might be opening up a spot in Sag Harbor Village, I called to get some information from Shoe-Inn corporate and I was told we “have no comment”…hmmm is that a YES….Guess I will have to wait until April 1st to see who’s moving in.
  • Pepalajefa the gourmet take-out has closed their doors for good and that space is available for rent. Does this surprise anyone that they are closing? The name was complicated to pronounce and the food was over the top expensive.
  • Harlow in the Harbor: Contrary to the rumors being spread, they will be re-opening this Spring and “Back Harlow” will be back with some great bands. Looking forward to seeing what is on the menu this summer. I enjoyed “Back Harlow very much last year, entertaining and FUN, just what was lacking in the Harbor. I wonder who’s in the line-up for entertainment this summer
  • Copious Row an online store in opening in Sag Harbor this Spring 2015 with rare and specialized items that are not commonly found. A variety of criteria is considered and includes: top quality craftsmanship, a powerful origin story, and a supreme esthetic appeal. The perfect gift when nothing ordinary will do.

    Looks like the Sag Harbor Pharmacy might be getting some competition in the area soon, more info to come on that soon….

    Provisions:will be sporting a new look this season….They have been under renovation since the 14th of March and will be re-opening on March 25th. Can’t wait to see the new look.

Hamptons: What is new on Main Street Bridgehampton in 2014

Bridgehampton, NY: What is new on Main Street Bridgehampton in 2014…. New Businesses come to Main Street in Bridgehampton 2014…Last week I heard that 2 new businesses were opening on Main Street in Bridgehampton, so I drove by to check them out. I thought I had heard wrong on the name BLOW..and I had to see what this was all about. I was told that dry blow bars are trending in NYC and there was a demand for it in the Hamptons. I believe they will do well, the price point is sweet. Next door to Blow is Chase Edwards, a beautiful Fine Art Gallery  I stopped in to speak to Gallery owner Bonnie Edwards and her energy was exciting. She made me feel welcomed and I knew that if I felt this way others would feel her electrifying energy and tell their friends about her.DSC_5219 copy

Chase Edwards…F i n e  A r t

DSC_4978A prominent Long Island-raised gallery owner is returning to her roots in the Hamlet of Bridgehampton, New York,  under the name Chase Edwards Fine Art Galleries. Bonnie Elizabeth Edwards has returned to the area after a successful west coast career including galleries in Laguna Beach, CA, Palm Desert, CA, Maui HI, Nantucket MA., Sante Fe, NM., and Oyster Bay, NY.  Bonnie’s clients include luminaries in the art, entertainment and business world.  From paintings to sculptures to functional pieces, and photography, the gallery will present works of established and emerging new talents in the world of contemporary art. According to Bonnie, Bridgehampton is ideal for galleries. “The historic charm surrounded by the immense natural beauty of the ocean and the bay, easily accessible to a large advanced art community base, is an attractive environment for galleries.” The store hours will be 11am-7pm daily. Evening hours for strollers and events are in the works for the busy season.DSC_4980 (1)

The Hamptons Best Pizza

The Hamptons Best Pizza
Pizza is one of those food items that everyone loves, I guess because it is so customized for your personal taste. For some it’s all about the crust thick or thin, for others it’s the sauce and then there are those where it’s all about the cheese for me I want all three crust, sauce & cheese. I really like thin crust because I feel like you can really taste the toppings more when you’re mouth isn’t full of bread. Also important for me is that there isn’t too much tomato sauce. I hate a pizza where the sauce is gushing out with every bite and causing the cheese and everything to fall off. I vary with toppings, I like mozzarella, tomatoes and basil (but the mozzarella & tomatoes need to be sliced thin), I love really good pepperoni, yummy sausage & peppers or mushrooms. What are your favorite toppings?

 Who has The Hamptons Best Pizza? The Hamptons is home to many pizzerias many of which I have personally visited and many I have not. Based on suggestions from friends, my personal experience, google & yelp reviews is how this list was developed? Some will say Pizza in the Hamptons is not as good as NYC pizza like Gabby’s Pizza in Queens or Ray’s Pizza in NYC two of my favorites but I think you will be pleasantly pleased with the selected Hamptons pizzeria’s. My hubby tells me however no one compares to the legendary Gloria’s pizza that used to be in Flushing Queens, he continues to show his age.

These are my top 10 Hamptons Mouthpiece picks for The Hamptons BEST Pizza…criteria: Crust, sauce, cheese, toppings and of course taste. Plain pizza
