You Should Know: Daphne Oz

by Christie Grimm · August 29, 2016

This au naturale foods chef, co-host of "The Chew," and daughter of one certain beloved television doctor, is, quite simply, a treat. Never not one to relish the moment, Daphne's time out East is spent cooking and ordering up a storm with her family. So you can bet her restaurant recommendations are fairly foolproof.

Name: Daphne Oz
Occupation: Author, TV Host
Place of Birth: Philly

Zodiac Sign: Aquarius

What do you actually do? I get paid to eat delicious things and hang out with my friends on tv. I spend too much time emailing, moving shit from one hidden corner of my apartment to another (is this organizing?)/cleaning up toys, planning future meals/trips, and imaginarily decorating homes I don't own. For fun, my kids and I run an abstract-art-and-muffins factory out of our apartment - stop by and see us!

My motto is: Trust the universe and have fun.

5 Favorite Hamptons Places: Quail Hill Farm and Amber Waves, Grindstone Coffee & Donuts, Botanica Bazaar, MONC XIII for interiors inspiration, Bostwick's and La Fondita for easy meals with the kids. And I'm way over 5 places now, but Scoop du Jour because you have to have dessert.

The craziest thing I've done out East is... thankfully still secret.

Best kept Hamptons secret? See above. Also, I don't know if it's a secret, but the brownie pudding at Loaves & Fishes changed my life. Crispy top and edges, plus luscious, molten chocolate interior, plus complete disregard for calorie content (more Hamptons magic!) equals dessert bliss.

If you had one day left out East, what would you do?The newspaper over coffee and donuts with my husband and kidlets. Maybe finally learn to surf. Pack a picnic spread from Round Swamp and head to the beach. Hammock nap/snuggle. Bonfire at night for a clambake and s'mores with friends, live music and lots of dancing.

Who should we know? You already know everyone. But my siblings - Arabella, Zoe, & Oliver - are pretty fab.
