Our final day in Montauk was a cloudy one, but that didn’t stop us from making the very best of it. We woke up early, packed a picnic and headed to Montauk Point Lighthouse. It was nice to explore a historical aspect of Montauk.
We spent a few minutes enjoying the sight and then headed to Camp Hero, where we set up a picnic overlooking the water. It was the perfect start to our day.
For our picnic, we brought along some Winc wine. Winc is a super trendy wine delivery service (go to www.trywinc.com/mylittlewhiteplate to begin your membership today and receive a $20 discount and complimentary shipping). We also brought along some cheddar blue cheese, donut peaches, and sunflowers that we picked up at the farmer’s market. It was an absolutely perfect morning, up until a bee decided to grace me with a stinger right to the foot. So, we packed up and headed for some tequila at Tacombi (that should take the sting out, right?).
We’ve been to Tacombi’s New York City location, and loved everything about it, so we were stoked to learn that they had a Montauk location. We love the ease of ordering. You are handed a paper menu/check off list and pencils. You check away, hand it off to your server and voila!! The palomas were the perfect antidote for my bee sting. After 2, I hardly remembered the encounter.
After a nice tequila buzz, we soaked it all up with corn esquites, barbacoa + crispy fish tacos. All were delicious, but our favorite was definitely the barbacoa taco. The slow roasted beef was so tender, it melted in our mouths.
Later on, we dined at The Surf Lodge Restaurant. Since it was our last night in Montauk, we wanted to stay at our hotel instead of wandering about. After all, we had a 4 hour journey back home the next morning. The aesthetics of the restaurant defined the culture of Montauk.
We love how all of their ingredients come directly from local farms and the seafood from the fishing boats of Montauk Harbor. It makes everything taste super fresh. The Linguine was one of our fave dishes of the trip. It was filled with lots of lump crab meat and topped with King Crab Legs. Double the crab = two happy chicks 🙂 The Parmesan + lemon asparagus and the market green salad was a great balance to the pasta dish. We left happy and full and ready for bed.
Waking up that morning to leave was a bit depressing. We would’ve stayed right through the entire summer. That Depression however was alleviated by all of the fun exciting impromptu pit stops on the way out. We decided to first stop off at Wolffer Kitchen in Amagansett for brunch. Totally unexpected stop but so glad we did.
This Bohemian Eatery was EVERYTHING!! From the floral cushioned booths to the hanging macrame planters, to the gorgeous bar…it was dripping with style.
The menu was equally as stylish. The eggs benedict and the avocado toast were on point and were the perfect fuel for our trek back home. We both ordered a “bee keeper” cocktail to help wash away our end of vacation blues. What would brunch be without a yummy cocktail anyway?
We thought that’d be the last of the stops but as we were zipping down Montauk Hwy, we spotted the cutest little Rose Wine Stand. Needless to say, we made a quick u-turn and spent the afternoon sipping Rose at Wolffer Estate Wine Stand.
