We recently told you about bottles of glorious rosé for sale at Wolffer Estate. Above is another sign of spring: The snow is melting at Sammy’s Beach! If you’ve never been to this idyllic spot in East Hampton’s Northwest Harbor, here’s directions to get there.
In other “season is approaching” news…
The good folks at Curbed Hamptons tell us that LIFE AS WE KNOW IT is about to change: A ramen noodle shop is opening in East Hampton! Momi Ramen of Miami is bringing its noodle-y goodness up this way. Chef-owner Jeffrey Z. Chen is legit – he grew up in Hong Kong and then practiced his craft in Japan. At long last, the gods of Asian cuisine are smiling upon us. Is it too much to ask that the ramen be reasonably priced, too? Probably.
Meanwhile, ahead of our favorite green holiday…
Over at Rowdy Hall restaurant on Main Street, where summer never seems to end, some pre-St. Patrick’s Day shenanigans seem to be taking place. Last night, the crew closed down the establishment for its 13th Annual Beer Dinner, which judging from these Instagram photos, involved Blue Point IPA and a whole lot of delicious-looking ribs and chicken made by chef Joe Realmuto. We can only hope he’s perfecting the recipe for the rest of us. Rowdy Hall is open as usual this weekend.
In more sobering news, the East Hampton Star reports that the Montauk Manor’s condominium website was hacked last weekend, and visitors were greeted with a black banner that read “Hacked by Islamic State” — followed, rather incongruously, by a winky-face emoticon. We’re choosing to believe a high school prankster is behind this, rather than the cowardly terrorist group. Either way, Montauk Manor’s site seems to be running smoothly now.
Uber will totally give you a lift
The car service loved by
everybody outer-borough-dwelling hipsters plans on business as usual this coming season in the Hamptons, according to the New York Post. Apparently, drivers are being enticed with “double NYC” rates on the East End, including Bridgehampton, Southampton, Amagansett and Montauk. It’s all very clear (not really) about whether there are rules against this sort of thing. Sort of like the alcohol ban at Indian Wells Beach.
