HAMPTONS THIS WEEKEND? TRY GEORGICA’S SUMMER GOODIES

It’s summertime, when New Yorkers escape the hot city,  and the socialites and sunseekers of the NYC population go to the Hamptons for beaches and fancy BBQs. Exploring this new territory of restaurants and lifestyle I was asked to host a 15 person dinner at Georgica Restaurant and Lounge which sits on the banks of Georgica Pond, for which it is named.

Georgica serves modern American cuisine with great sushi for sharing, from Executive Chefs Robert Hesse and Seth Levine in the white-washed, breezy patios or in the intimate dining room. There is also a beachy lounge and bar serving a ready-to-party Hamptons crowd.  Featuring party favorite appetizers, grilled meats, fresh seafood with a sophisticated atmosphere to match. The service like any summer 4-month seasonal, is still learning and relearning, but what the staff lacks, the delicious food definitely makes up for it.

– Grilled Calamari

– Spicy Tuna Roll

-Lobster Roll

-East Coast Halibut

Keep it glamorous and summery with embellished whites that pop against a tan like this white sequined dress from Bebe and diamond jewels (thanks Jeffrey Rackover) to add a little sparkle to a hot evening.
