We are happy to report that our friends Matt Kliegman and Carlos Quirarte from The Smile (the quaint restaurant on Bond street that has won over the hearts of many a Nolitan), along with their chef, Melina Marden will be collaborating with executive chef Brian Loiacono over at Ruschmeyer's in Montauk. The previous summers, the restaurant at the hotel, owned and managed by King and Grove was being run by the boys from the Fat Radish. What does this mean for Ruschmeyers? Well besides delivering great eats, Matt and Carlos are responsible for running some of the hottest spots in downtown Manhattan (The Jane Hotel and The Westway), and this summer, it seems they will be taking their loads of followers out East.

In 2008 Surf Lodge, a quaint restaurant with a surf theme opened on Fort Pond with hardly much of a bang. Sure they had a hip chef running the kitchen and a verified Manhattan nightlife crew running the party scene, but the hundreds of cars and frat boys would take a year or two to fully figure out what was brewing in Montauk. Since then, the movement of the hampters (hipsters from Manhattan) and the share house yuppies looking to party in the Hamptons has consistently headed East (Luckily for Lizzie Grubman, Conscious Point isn't even a memory in the minds of current trend-seekers). Keeping on trend, Montauk's nightlife scene will continue to dominate the Hamptons this summer, despite the growing battle between the townsfolk and these summer subversives who will be infiltrating their territory come Memorial Day weekend. But we're not here to take sides, we're here to report. Check out our official guide to Hamptons Nightlife 2013! More»

Check out our updated round-up of new Hamptons dining destinations!
The Hamptons Free Ride boys are back again this summer, and this season they're hitting up Southampton. The electric shuttle had its inaugural ride back in 2011, when locals James Mirras and Alex Esposito started driving people, including Bon Jovi, around the Hamptons beaches for free. On top of their service in East Hampton, Montauk, and Amagansett, the Hamptons Free Ride boys will be cruising out to Southampton beginning on Memorial Day. They partnered with Southampton locals, Chris and Stacy Dimon, to launch the new route. Now, getting around town and to Cooper's beach will be easier than ever. More»

If you thought two mediocre shows based (very, very loosely) on life in the Hamptons were more than enough, it seems that Glee co-creator, Ryan Murphy, thinks otherwise. News has recently broke that Murphy has just sold a family thriller, titled Montauk to Fox, which will be up for competition against both Revenge and Royal Pains, the current faux portrayal of Hamptons life.

Cynthia Rowley has had a busy summer. From collaborating with Johnson & Johnson on a line of band-aids to working on DREAMPOP, a new collection for tweens available at JC Penney, Rowley hasn't had much down time.

Rowley spoke with us about what it was like planning and holding show at 5 Beekman, the inspiration for her new collection, and what she really thinks of fashion week!
