One of my favorite cities in the world is New York City. I have gone there since I am a little girl and I love it more, every time I visit. While in New York, I also enjoy going out to the Hamptons which is about a 2 to 5 hour drive East of the city, depending on traffic. My hubby grew up in the area and loves taking me there to show me all the cool spots and the beautiful beaches. In 2012, we re-visited the area on a family vacation. While strolling around in the Hamptons, we found this amazing artisanal food and cheese store called Lucy’s Whey. We bought a loaf of crusty bread and some scrumptious cheese, then, stopped to get some wine at a liquor store nearby. We brought them back to the hotel and had a feast. It was such a heavenly pairing and perfect for a leisurely afternoon.
If you have been to the Hamptons, you will definitely recognize this windmill which is a landmark in the area.
Since our last visit in 2012, we found out the store, Lucy’s Whey has a Pop Up Shop in Lieb Cellars in East Hampton. They also own 2 stores in New York city that are open all year-round.
