Montauk | City Guide

Happy Wednesday ya'll! I've been wanting to start including some posts lately that give you an insiders look to some of the best cities in the states. I've been wanting to do some for my go to places like Seattle, Denver and Tulsa but when I came across a city guide to Montauk in this month's LUCKY MAG I figured it would be a great way to kick it off. I've never been to that side of the country but I know that it is the place to be when you live in the northeast. Especially in the summer!!!! So I hope you enjoy the post and all the others to follow :) XO

18 Bay Restaurant

If we’re not cooking dinner, we’ll go to 18 Bay Restaurant for an equally fresh meal. All of the food is farm-to-table, with a delicious menu that changes weekly—and the atmosphere is so relaxed. 23 N. Ferry Rd., Shelter Island, 631-749-0053


On rainy days, we venture into Sag Harbor to raid treasure-filled home store Monc XIII. It’s full of super-unique pieces—modern accents, midcentury furniture and antiques. 40 Madison St., Sag Harbor, 631-808-3333

The Surf Lodge

For sunset drinks, head to The Surf Lodge. You can’t beat that view—it’s the best place to watch the sun go down. Then check out the hotel’s boutique, Surf Bazaar, which has an awesome selection of bikinis and cover-ups. 183 Edgemere St., Montauk, 631-483-5037

Sylvester Manor

We pick our own vegetables at Sylvester Manor, an organic farm on Shelter Island, then bring them home and make a feast. 80 N. Ferry Rd., Shelter Island, 631-749-0626

Shelter Island: Hither Hills And Shell Beach

Our go-to beaches are Hither Hills in Montauk and Shell Beach on Shelter Island. They’re usually not crowded, so you really get to chill. But if you’re looking for more excitement, Sunset Beach might be more your speed. It has all sorts of activities—yoga, kayaking, volley-ball—plus it’s home to hotelier AndrĂ© Balazs’ spot by the same name. 35 Shore Rd., Shelter Island, 631-749-2001

Reddings Market

The perfect morning starts at Reddings Market. It has a big breakfast menu and veggie and fruit juices. Out back there’s a little seating area that faces the harbor so you can enjoy your meal while looking at the sea. 184 N. Ferry Rd., Shelter Island, 631-749-0003

Melet Mercantile

For vintage bits and bobs, we’ll hit up Melet Mercantile. It has housewares as well as clothing, like lace tops and denim cutoffs. 102 Industrial Rd., Montauk, 631-668-9080
