When it comes to the best places in town for food, shopping, drinks and more, SI Swimsuit models know it all. So we asked them. They sent us their recommendations for food, drink, shopping and more and we’ve compiled it all in one place just for you. Don’t see your city? Stay tuned. Next up, Emily DiDonato headed out to the Hamptons and is sharing all her faves.
Best Place for Lobster: Lobster Roll
“It never truly feels like summer to me until I go to Amagansett and stop at Lobster Roll, more commonly known as LUNCH, for a lobster roll. I have been coming here for years and every summer it tastes better and better. My go-to order is a classic cold lobster roll with coleslaw on the side!”
Best Place for Brunch: Lulu Kitchen and Bar
"Another favorite spot of mine is Lulu Kitchen and Bar in Sag Harbor. All of their food is so fresh and colorful which makes it the perfect spot for lunch or dinner. Even better, they have an amazing brunch on Sundays."
Best Place for a Girls’ Night Out: Crow’s Nest
I love the vibe at Crow’s Nest in Montauk. It is the perfect feel-good spot to sip on rosé with your girlfriends and listen to music on the weekends. I especially love sitting outside in the grass under the lanterns watching the sunset -- it feels so dreamy.
Most Relaxing Spot: Sagg Main Beach
"My favorite beach out in the Hamptons has to be Sagg Main Beach. My husband and I take daily beach walks here at the end of our work days, and we always see the most gorgeous sunsets. There is also nothing more relaxing than hearing the ocean waves crash on the shoreline."
Best Place for Rosé Sipping: Wölffer Estate
"Another great place for rosé all day is Wölffer Estate in Sagaponack. The winery is on 55 acres of beautiful land and they have private tours and tastings. I love sitting on their back patio for a late lunch while testing out different wines."
Best Place to Watch the Sunset: The Beacon
"Another amazing place to watch the sunset over cocktails and bites is The Beacon in Sag Harbor. It’s so relaxing to sit and sip as you watch the boaters at the marina go by and feel the salt air hit your face."
Best Place to Grab Beach Bites: Navy Beach
"For fun beach bites, the best place to go is Navy Beach. They have amazing small plates to pick on during the day or larger ones at night for when you get hungry post-swim. What I love most about it is that they have tables set up right on the beach in the sand."
