maine’s perfect summer sandwich

There’s a mythic quality to Maine lobster. Perhaps it’s those icy, northern waters that keep human beings from swimming—even in the peak of summer—that make the purest home for that singular crustacean. Maybe it’s the way a bright red lobster looks against a backdrop of evergreens and a gray-shingled lobster shack. Whatever the reason, though, one thing is for sure. Maine lobsters are in a class unto themselves, and putting them into a sandwich in the late 1920s was a history-altering act of culinary inspiration. “There’s no denying the pure joy of biting into chunks of lobster piled high on a toasted, split-top New England-style bun,” says Mike Urban, author of Lobster Shacks: A Road-trip Guide to New England’s Best Lobster Joints. The defining elements of a lobster roll, Urban says,…

what’s in your beach bag?

Jenni Kayne has quite literally made a name for herself with a style sensibility so utterly Malibu and Montecito you might feel transported to either spot merely by pulling on one of her cotton fisherman sweaters. Every Jenni Kayne piece—fashion and home decor—possesses the confidence of timeless design and embraces natural fabrics and neutral hues. It’s fitting that the designer’s go-to beach is in another classically laid-back California escape: Lake Tahoe. “I’ve spent summer there since I was a kid,” she says. “A sandy spot by our house is truly the most relaxing spot on Earth.” Since buying back her childhood vacation home, Kayne delights in sharing that lake love with her three children. “For me there is nothing better than a day by the water with them,” she says.…

going wild on montauk

Set apart in ways both geographical and metaphorical on the far-east tip of Long Island, this renowned enclave has shown ongoing genius at inventing, and then reinventing, itself. From fishing village to surfer hangout to must-see scene, Montauk has gone from low-key to high-buzz. This season, a serene boutique hotel aims to change the story to one of wild, natural retreat. Marram—named for the beach grasses that grow among the sand dunes that mound and surround it—is owner Atit Jariwala’s statement that it’s time to honor Montauk’s setting in a new way. “As the town continues to change, properties get renovated and trends come and go,” he says, “but nature is timeless.” Indeed, the 96-room, low-lying complex eschews traditionally nautical motifs for a sand-whispered palette of neutrals. The lobby leans raw…

sunrise kingdom

I WASN’T ALL THAT SURPRISED TO SEE WILD RABBITS STANDING AT ATTENTION WHILE REVEILLE SOUNDED ON NEWPORT’S CASTLE HILL. I’d been walking to a lighthouse above the sea-splashed rocks of Narragansett Bay when the nearby Coast Guard station’s morning call began. Just ahead, in a slash of sunlight, two cottontails rose to their hind legs, held still as sentries while the bugle played and then darted into a thicket of wild rose. Natural behavior? Could be. But in my few days of traveling Rhode Island’s meandering coastline, I’d learned that, in these parts, enchantment is everywhere. Maybe the roots of that wonderment can be traced to the tiny state’s long history as a refuge for dreamers. Tucked between Massachusetts to its north and east, Connecticut to its west, and nearly cleaved from…
