hamptons_onlocationopen2 The Best New Hamptons Pit-Stops. By Nicole Schlomann
Come summertime, it seems every right-minded New Yorker is fleeing the concrete jungle and crowding the Jitney for the coast. The cool breezes and hot sun could be the draw, but we're guessing the opening of several stylish new pop-up stores, restaurants, and hotels could have something to do with it, too. After all, everyone still wants the convenience and variety of the New York experience—just tweaked a bit with some Hamptons "charm." Mixing of-the-moment style with an easy-going attitude, these new outposts may just keep you off the beach (temporarily).

surflodge_hamptons
The Surf Lodge
This hotel, which opened on Memorial Day, is a loving homage to surf culture and it skips the kitsch for whitewashed walls, woven hammocks, driftwood, and beachfront views. Top Chef contestant Sam Talbot is in charge of the lodge's restaurant and the lodge's den plays classic surf films 24 hours a day. 183 Edgemere Street, Montauk, 631-238-5190; www.thesurflodge.com
Tutto Il Giorno
Reopened this year as a joint venture between Donna Karan (her Urban Zen store is next door) and her daughter, this reinvented restaurant replaces a rustic Italian atmosphere with a cleaner, more summery feel. The food is correspondingly light but still yummy. 6 Bay Street, Sag Harbor, 631-725-7009
