If you’re like me (and the rest of the Upper East Side), East Hampton makes for a lovely weekend getaway because of its private beaches, cute boutiques and fine dining.

And after all, with all the sweaty over-population of Manhattan summer, we deserve an escape to a calmer place.

Famed for their Nordic slow food cuisine, the The Living Room at The Maidstone Hotel offers a wonderful selection of slow food that honors heritage while playing on gastronomical innovation.

Be sure to try their famous dish löjrom (Swedish cavier), because we all know how good fish eggs are for you!
