The Living Room and c/o The Maidstone: East Hampton Chic, Gourmet Dining, Luxurious, Contemporary, Swedish Hospitality in the Heart of East Hampton, Long Island, NY


Chic, beautiful, Scandinavian-Inspired Slow Food by Chef James Carpenter (ex Della Femina) is one of the hottest spots in The Hamptons! Their philosophy is simple: We owe it to the planet to eat good food. So we do our utmost to adhere to the Slow Food movement’s principles, with a Scandinavian twist. No nonsense. Enjoy dinner, lunch, afternoon tea, breakfast, yappy hour and all other in between snacks. The luxury boutique hotel is also one of the hottest spots out east, with hip decor, great service, and a contemporary, yet warm, welcoming Swedish ambience.

The Living Room prioritizes the use of organic, locally sourced and seasonally appropriate ingredients, including herbs fresh from the herb garden out back, fish from the waters around Long Island and local game. All bread, pastries and Swedish cookies are baked on site. As dedicated Swedes, certain products must be imported so as to remain authentic–such as the cheddar cheese that goes into a Västerbotten pie.
