A Hamptons Insider Shares His Secrets
Josh Schneps of Dan’s Papers tells us his favorite places for coffee, produce, and more
A three-day weekend is approaching and, if you live in New York, chances are you’re packing up for a Hamptons getaway.
Located on Eastern Long Island, the Hamptons has long been a playground for the rich and famous, who flock there to escape the oppressive heat of New York City in the summer.
But, despite its reputation as a spectacularly busy place, the Hamptons can be a tranquil refuge filled with daytime jaunts to the farmers market and evenings sipping cocktails on the beach. Like all towns, it takes an insider to share the scoop on all the best places to eat and drink.
As co-publisher of iconic Hampton’s local news source, Dan’s Papers, Josh Schneps is the ultimate source for the best places to eat and drink.
Dan’s Papers also hosts Chefs of the Hamptons on Thursday, June 22 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at the EHP Resort & Marina in East Hampton. The event features food from over a dozen of the Hamptons’ top chefs offering food and drink overlooking Three Mile Harbor. Guests will also enjoy live music and cool breezes at this event that signals the start of the summer soiree season. Tickets start at $179 for silver level and can be purchased here.
Schneps shared his favorite spots for coffee, fresh produce, happy hour, and more with Broken Palate. Follow his tips and enjoy the best of the Hamptons this summer.
For Fresh Produce- West Hampton Beach Farmers Market
“They have the best selection of farm fresh produce out East! Insider tip, brag a container of the horse radish pickles for an extra kick.”
For Coffee - Hampton Coffee Company
“They are locally owned with locations throughout the Hamptons and one on the North Fork. I start my day off every morning with a black iced coffee. It has to be good if you put nothing in it.”
Dessert - Briermere Farms
“If you are in the Hamptons, it is worth every minute to drive to Briermere on the North Fork. You will not find better pies and jams anywhere on planet Earth! Don’t leave without picking up a raspberry cream pie.”
Happy Hour - 75 Main
“Rarely will you not be greeted by owner Zach Erdem at this Southampton staple. The scene and food always deliver no matter any day of the week. They also make a perfectly balanced martini.”
Brunch - Si Si at EHP Resort & Marina
“Si Si has a selection of food to match the incredible view of Three Mile Harbor. I’ve never had brunch without their signature lobster cobb salad.”
