    If the Hamptons have a reputation for glitz and glamour, where bankers charter helicopters to make a splash at plein air fetes in Amagansett, then Montauk is its low-key cousin. It's the spot where you arrive in a woody with a surfboard strapped to your roof and a case of rosé taking up the better part of your trunk.
