july 4th: a weekend review in food

Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July! If you’re like me, the weekend meant lots of quality time with friends accompanied by, what else, a fabulous assortment of fine food. There were cookouts and lazy nights in as well. Nice.

Monday though it was all about the beach. We were off bright and early to head to the Hamptons, Amagansett specifically, for the morning. The sand on the beach was soft and the others on the beach were quiet and respectful, noticeably enjoying the beach but not announcing it to you and those around you just how much so with each word they utter.

After the sun started to fade a bit, we packed up for our next stop – The Clam Bar. On my last trip out east, I’d been to Duryea’s for lobster rolls, a favorite of one of my girlfriends (Dixie loved it too). This time though a local had recommended this spot saying it was better. And I daresay I agree. The bun was slightly non-traditional, though it had the butter it should and was slightly toasted (so to me, they got the important part right). The lobster was plentiful too – lots of claw meat and very little filler, and the mayo wasn’t overwhelming.

So many options, but really only one option...

And it’s not a trip to the Hamptons without a stop at Brieremere Farms. Blueberry cream pie. Yes please! I could barely contain my excitement (ok, maybe I didn’t really try). If you’ve followed this blog, you’ve probably read my ode to this fabulous dessert in the past.

  1. You and I both wish!! They don’t even deliver in the area. Some people will even charge to bring them back for you, but don’t work for them directly. So worth it. Pain to get there from the city though. Definitely requires a car.
