Michelle gives us the low down on her favorite spots in the area — check out her Hamptons cheat sheet …
1. You’re ready to test out your new MILLY Cabana bikini and coverup. The first place you go…
Gibson Beach – my husband, Andy, took me here for our first beach date and I’ve loved it ever since.
2. Guilty pleasure:
The steak gorgonzola at Bobby Vans in Bridgehampton. Andy, my husband, and I split it every time we go! It’s one of Sophia’s and Will’s favorite spots, too.
3. Favorite family spot:
Mecox Bay. The kids love to go crabbing there—they’re entertained for hours.
4. You need an hour to yourself…
SoulCycle in Bridgehampton. Gotta have some Stacey G time. If I have more time, I love to stop by the MILLY East Hampton Boutique to check in on how things are going with the store.
5. Not-so-secret retreat:
The Clam Bar in Napeague. The music is great and they serve Molson Golden beer, which is hard to find.
6. Your kids are ecstatic when you tell them:
We’re going for a boat ride on “Captain Dave’s” boat. Dave is Andy’s oldest friend and we love spending the day boat riding with his family in Sag Harbor.
7. Best sugar rush:
The ice cream at Candy Kitchen in Bridgehampton.
8. It’s Sunday morning - you’re headed to:
We bike from our house to Hamptons Coffee Company. The breakfast burrito is my favorite…
9. Rainy day haunt:
Reading a good book on our covered porch.
10. It’s date night…
Andy and I love Wolffer Estate Vineyard at sunset. The music, wine and a sunset make for a perfect night.
