You Should Know: Stephen Alesch

by Christie Grimm · August 29, 2016

Skimming through a list of all the restaurants, hotels, nightclubs, homes of note du jour is basically a flip through the portfolio of Roman and Williams. The smudged-nouveau aesthetic of next-big-thing restaurant Le Cou Cou, the modern Gatsby allure of The Boom Boom Room, Gwyneth Paltrow's Tribeca Penthouse. GWYNETH PALTROW'S TRIBECA PENTHOUSE! One can only imagine how beautiful, magazine-worthy the design duo's Montauk beach home is.

Name: Stephen Alesch
Occupation: Designer
Place of Birth: Neenah, Wisconsin
Instagram / Twitter: Instagram - twitter sucks
Zodiac Sign: Scorp

What do you actually do? Design all kinds of things, buildings, hotels, restaurants, furniture

My motto is: Grow where others cannot (a plant motto)

5 Favorite Hamptons Places: My garden, the beach by my house, my kitchen, bluffs of shadmoor, johnnys burgers in montauk

The craziest thing I've done out East is... Drop in on a local during a good swell

Best kept Hamptons secret? Never actually go to east hampton between memorial day and labor day.

If you had one day left out East, what would you do? Watch the sunrise from lighthouse, swim from the lighthouseo to shadmoor, build a big bonfire on top of the bluff - dive off the bluff.

Who should we know? Micky, marshall, the ups guy, the fed ex guy, stu, holly, that dude with the viking helmet.
