East End Hot Boite Smackdown

Friday, May 25, 2018

Every summer The Hamptons has its showdowns, such as: 

Soul Cycle vs. Flywheel

Writers vs. Artists Softball Game

Blade vs. East Hamptonites (or East Hampton Airport vs. Residents)

Range Rover vs. Tesla

AVENUE on the Beach vs. The latest wannabe magazine

Deer vs. Your Landscaping

Ron Perelman vs. Well, Everyone

And while there are so many chic “must-be-seen-in” places to dine out East (Dopo, Tutto, Nick & Toni’s), this year’s contenders battling for the title of absolute hottest are shaping up to be: Nikki Beach, the new pop-up taking over from Oreya at the Capri Hotel , and Le Bilboquet, the new Sag Harbor classic returning for its second year. But how do they stack up? Scroll through the gallery below.

May the best boite win!
