What’s New In the Hamptons This Summer?

The season has arrived, and there are so many things to discuss. Will East Hampton’s new rental registry mean the end of the stuffed-to-the-gills sharehouse? Will it bring a much-needed improvement in the summer traffic situ? Will it mean we can dine at Crow’s Nest on a  Saturday night without a three-hour wait? (A Daily can dream…) We’ve got you covered with all the latest developments in shopping, food, and fitness out East…

Pierre’s impresario Pierre Weber has a new project: the former Sagg General Store storefront in Sagaponack, located at 542 Sagg Main Street. Weber aims to call the place Pierre’s Market, and create a souped-up general store concept that’s open year-round.

The Southampton Publick House is moving to 62 Jobs Lane, in the space formerly occupied by The Driver’s Seat.

For anyone who fancies the rosé, download DriverOnTap now (free on iTunes). The app will send a screened, licensed, and fully insured driver anywhere from Southampton to Montauk, and he or she will drive you and your crew home in your own car. The app will estimate cost based on the amount of time for your trip; fees start at $35. A relative bargain, non?

At the Service Station, a new spot in East Hampton in the space formerly occupied by Winston’s and Nichol’s, restaurateur Michael Gluckman and partner Shane Dyckman are planning to offer comfort food and healthy fare. It aims to be open year-round and serve lunch and dinner daily.

Summer 2016’s hottest restaurant is shaping up to be the new outpost of Le Bilboquet, which will take over the former B. Smith spot in Sag Harbor. Ron Perelman is an intimate of the restaurant’s founder, Philippe Delgrange, and he is said to be buying the entire building on Long Wharf. An Aspen branch is also appears to be within reach.

After 13 years in business and a whopping seven locations in New York City and the East End, Jack Mazzola is finally bringing his shade-grown, fair trade, organic coffee to Sag Harbor. This is Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee’s second outpost in the Hamptons (following its Amagansett flagship, which remains beloved despite considerable crowds in the summer).

Juice Press is opening up its third East End shop in East Hampton this weekend. Located at 55 Main Street, the spot will offer more than 85 beverages, along with acai bowls, superfood smoothies, organic salads, hot soups, and more.
