Bostwick’s Chowder House

Amanda Freeman, Founder of SLT

Jimmy Minardi, Founder of Minardi Training

“I love to eat lunch at Hampton Chutney Co. Everything in there is healthy and packed with nutrients that give you energy for the rest of the day. After teaching yoga at Mandala next door, I always stop by for their famous dosas stuffed with eggs, spinach, cheese and avocado. There’s nothing better.”

Estia’s Little Kitchen

Vando Cabral, Head Trainer at Punch Fitness Center

“After a long morning of intense training, the other Punch trainers and I love to stop by Estia’s Little Kitchen in Sag Harbor. They have great salads and omelets, but I especially love the burritos. My favorite is Big Al’s Burrito, served with mixed vegetables, a veggie burger, egg whites and jack cheese.”

Andrea Rogers, Founder of Xtend Barre

“You really can’t beat The Surf Lodge for summer lunch. Sitting by the water’s edge is so beautiful, especially after our Saturday-morning Xtend Barre workout on the outdoor deck. The roasted summer squash salad is my go-to for lunch.”

Emily Mara

Emily Mara, Director of AKT East Hampton

“After a full morning of training at AKT, I love to go to Simply Sublime. It’s a little health food shop somewhat off the beaten path. The salad I find I crave the most is the Sublime Salad, which has lettuce, tomato, onion, kalamata olives, shredded carrots, corn, cucumber, dried cranberries and walnuts with their homemade basil balsamic Dijon dressing. I will usually add chicken--it’s the perfect combination of carbs, veggies, healthy fats and protein.”

Swallow Restaurant/Facebook

Jenn Seracuse, Director of FLEX Pilates

“I always make sure I get to Swallow East for lunch when I am teaching in Montauk. I’m obsessed with the atmosphere: a beachy vibe with lots of reclaimed wood and a big screened-in porch. I love sitting by the marina and watching the boats. Fish tacos are a must, and if I’m feeling like an indulgent treat, I’ll get the calamari.”

Jess Lynn, Director of Fitness at East End Row

"When I have time to sit down and enjoy lunch, my favorite is Westlake Fish House in Montauk. They just started a new brunch menu that has tons of gluten-free options. I love their fluke ceviche as well as their steak and eggs."

Tanya Becker, Cofounder and CCO of Physique 57

Sean’s Place/Yelp

Michael Bunce Jr., Head Coach at Crossfit 11968

“I try to eat as clean possible and love fresh local food. My go-to lunch spot is Sean’s Place. I get one of their fresh juices every morning with a ginger and apple shot to boost my metabolism. I also love their egg sandwiches, which are made using ingredients from a local farm--it’s a great post-workout protein boost.”

The Beacon

Conor Kelly, Senior Instructor at Soulcycle

“My favorite place to eat any meal is The Beacon in Sag Harbor. The food and views of the harbor are amazing, and the staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great experience. The roasted chicken is the best chicken dish I’ve ever had.”

Kate Hickl, Master Instructor at Flywheel

“I typically finish teaching Flywheel around noon, so I’ll try to grab something on the go and head to Atlantic Avenue Beach or the Montauk pier for a picnic. My all-time favorite lunch is a to-go order from the Amagansett Seafood Store. It includes scallop ceviche, a lobster or tuna roll, and shrimp and seaweed salad. It’s the freshest seafood in the Hamptons and I literally could eat it every day.”
