Yeah, it’s only two weeks till Memorial Day and things are already starting to heat up in anticipation of the warmer days ahead, especially in Amagansett. Two new dining spots are putting on their finishing touches in hopes of feeding the masses of “Tribeca by the Sea.”
But more on that in a minute. At this time every year, the talk I constantly hear is about summer rentals. It’s funny even sometimes the most seasoned tenants need a reminder of what to expect when moving their lives to the east end. Luckily for those folks and everybody else with questions about what it means to rent in the Hamptons, I’ve done a little introduction. So grab your popcorn and press the play button below. Trust me it’s more informative and entertaining than Sandra Bullock’s “The Lost City.”
As I said in the beginning of this post some good grub is coming soon to Amagansett. One of the more anticipated openings will be for the new “Astro Pizza” on Main Street. Chef PJ Calipa (IG: @chefpjcalipa) is lending his expertise to the menu to include some gourmet pies and premium ice creams. Calapa is the owner and chef behind NYC’s usually packed Scampi restaurant in Chelsea. If his unique Mediteranian seafood dishes are any indication of whats to come, get ready for some seriously interesting pies. By the way, I know interesting pizza. When I was in college I waited tables at the Pizzaria Uno in Georgetown DC. for a few years. But really it’s not as impressive as it sounds.
Meanwhile, across the street some cool Bahamian breezes are sweeping into Amagansett Square. The former site of Hampton Chutney is soon to become a Caribbean themed restaurant. I happened to be walking by and was told it will be called “Doubles.” I dont’ have much more to add but I was told to expect an opening sometime in June. If you get any more details, let me know.
