Settling back into your East End groove for summer? Nicole Miller shares her top 10 spots for sourcing a Hamptons feast!
BAKERY: Sag Harbor Baking Co.
51 Division St., (631) 899-4900
“They have the best baguettes, (usually fresh out of the oven!) pretzel croissants, lemon tarts, and pecan squares.”
BUTCHER: Cromer’s Country Market
3500 Noyac Rd., Sag Harbor, (631) 725-9004
“A great selection of meat, and they make their own sausages! I always have some on hand for impromptu barbeques.”
COFFEE: Sag Town Coffee
78 Main St., Sag Harbor, (631) 725-8696
“After Flywheel at the crack of dawn, I get a Sag Town iced cappuccino. With whole milk, of course! Counterproductive, but well worth it.”
SEAFOOD: Dock Bar
1 Town Rd., Montauk, (631) 668-9778
“My go-to place for lobsters, cooked or alive. They also make a great clam chowder by the quart.”
FRUIT: Sag Harbor Farmer’s Market
Bay St. at Burke St., Sag Harbor
“On Memorial Day, I go here for Quail Hill Farm rhubarb: you can only get it until the first week of June. I freeze it to make rhubarb pie all summer!”
89B Division St., Rte. 114, Sag Harbor, (631) 725-0095
“There’s always a great selection of rosé, perfect for late summer afternoons.”
VEGETABLES: Serene Green Farm Stand
Stony Hill Rd. and Noyac Road, Sag Harbor, (631) 334-6311
“They’re always expanding their selection, with seafood now, too! I find exactly what I’m looking for.”
FLOWERS: Sag Harbor Florist
3 Bay St., Sag Harbor, (631) 725-1400
“They do beautiful custom arrangements. I use them for all my dinner parties, large and small.”
CHEESE: Red Horse Market
74 Montauk Highway, East Hampton, (631) 324- 9500
“I love mozzarella, and Red Horse Market has the best in the Hamptons! Chef Pasquale learned to make mozzarella from his grandmother in Naples, Italy when he was a boy.”
ICE CREAM: Nicole’s kitchen!
“I make my own! Besides my standby vanilla recipe, I also play around with fresh fruit, like strawberries.”
