On the Foodie Trail In The Hamptons – Prepping for Memorial Day Weekend

The weather was gorgeous in the Hamptons yesterday. I took a little trip to East Hampton and found:

The staff of Race Lane (31 Race Lane, EH) busily unloading boxes and boxes of food and wine.

(Tony Shoshi took a moment out to pose for this shot.)

Race Lane Co-Owner Rowaida Plumeri was cutting flowers to make up bouquets for the restaurant.

(One of Rowaida’s beautiful bouquets in the bar.)

At Lucy’s Whey on North Main Street in East Hampton, Lucy Kazickas has loading in crate and boxes of artisanal cheeses from all over America.

(This shop is so cute!)

Not everyone would count a metal shop as a “foodie stop” but metal artist and blacksmith James DeMartis had ordered some of my famous horseradish jam for the weekend – and I offered to drop it off. I love all the textures and sounds at play in his shop/studio in Springs!
All of his staff was hard at work turning out a gate, repairing some antique pieces, prepping sculpture and sweating.
Look for a feature article about DeMartis and his extraordinary work in an upcoming edition of Dan’s Papers.

This morning, coming into work, I was greeted by the site of the true beginning of summer – the Dan’s Papers parking lot was FULL of thousands and thousands of Dan’s Papers, our new Daily Dan and The Montauk Pioneer. oday’s Dan’s Papers contains multiple reviews of some top restaurants and a whole lot more.

A very foodie summer is about to take off!

Check out all the best food and wine the East End has to offer at Dan’s Taste of Two Forks on Saturday, July 16. Visit danstasteoftwoforks.com for all the yummy details.
