You Should Know: Celine Valensi

by Christie Grimm · August 29, 2016

Not so secretly the most powerful person out East, on any given night in the summer, Celine Valensi plays an impressive game of chess with everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio to Christie Brinkley, most likely upping your party's wait for a table to shorten the wait of those clearly more important. Even with a property as magical as The Crow's Nest, who could possibly get away with quoting conservative hour and a half wait times to hoards of hungry Hamptonites? A person with a personality painted all good vibes and smiles topped off with a beach blonde mane that would make even the most devoted brunette reconsider - that's who. The Crow's Nest - come for the Blue Crab Claw Tagliatelle, stay the two hours until you get to order it because Celine the boss perched about the hostess stand made it seem worth while.

Name: Celine Valensi

My motto is: Life's a garden - dig it.

What do you actually do? Hit the beach every morning with baby Jolie before it's time for work. 

5 Favorite Hamptons Places: The Spa at Gurney's, The Salt Cave for healing vibes, The Warhol Estate for a view, Holly's Market at Gosman's, The Sail Inn for a game of pool and darts.

The craziest thing I've done out East is... Swim with the phosphorescent jelly fish at night. 

Best kept Hamptons secret? The back roads.

If you had one day left out East, what would you do? Surf the lighthouse.
