Ditching Honky-Tonk for Chic
August 2015

“The results of the upgrade – overseen by hotelier Curtis Bashaw and his designer sister, Colleen Bashaw – are ravishing. The bar in the newly built two-story restaurant adjacent to the property has leather chairs, a wide fireplace, and a bounty of seafaring kitch that brings to mind what Herman Melville might have configured if he’d had a robber baron’s wealth. A front porch with rocking chairs overlooking the Sag Harbor Cove marina offers prime sunset views…. Snag a table on the [restaurant] balcony overlooking the water, order a shrimp cocktail, a filet mignon and a good bottle of cabernet from the well-appointed wine list (assembled by noted oenophile, Jay McInerney), and you’re in for a whale of a good time at Baron’s Cove.”

“John Steinbeck, Jackson Pollock, and Art Garfunkel all visited this 1960s Hamptons mainstay. After a top-to-toe renovation, the small, clubby hotel has a new pool with views of the marina and 67 rooms redone by interior designer, Colleen Bashaw, decked out with framed whaling maps and nautical-striped rugs. Better still, there’s a dedicated shuttle to whisk you down to the beach.”

Americana of the Hamptons
June 2015

“The newly renovated Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor evokes the old-time feel of 18th-century hospitality….. At Baron’s Cove, which opened in Sag Harbor in May, Curtis Bashaw and his sister, interior designer sister Colleen Bashaw, have created a two-story space (lobby bar downstairs, restaurant upstairs) that knows exactly what it wants to be: the living room of Sag Harbor, with an 18th-century, maritime accent. The room feels like sherry and port at 4 pm.”

“Following a two-year renovation, this new resort on the water in Sag Harbor village boasts myriad plush comforts. It has crisp modern rooms, some with private gardens or balconies overlooking the harbor; the grounds feature a saltwater pool, tennis court, and spa; and the second-floor terrace restaurant has a contemporary American menu by chef Matty Boudreau (formerly of Vine Street). It may not be your own front porch, but you can still enjoy a cocktail in one of the many rocking chairs on theirs.”

Restaurant Shuffle
May 2015

“You can’t get any more classic American than Cape Resorts Baron’s Cove. The new two-story eatery plays off the docks across the street very well. Dark wood flooring throughout and a wood-burning fireplace on each floor lends a clubby feel. The first floor bar and lounge area is strewn with couches and comfy chairs and will extend to the outdoors and serve small plates down the road. Meanwhile, the upstairs dining room, decorated with yachting flags and contrasting white ceiling beams, just opened. Executive chef Matty Boudreau, last seen in the kitchen of Shelter Island’s Vine Street Cafe, is serving up simple American fare like shrimp cocktail, lobster salad, scallops, steaks and chicken.”

The Most Exciting New Seafood Dishes at Hamptons Restaurants
June 2015

“Seafood lovers will rejoice over the shrimp- and herbed-stuffed lobster tail [at the Restaurant at Baron’s Cove]. Pieces of Gulf white shrimp mix with succulent lobster meat, over which a buttery herb-infused crème fraîche and garlic confit is drizzled. The ingredients are fresh and the combination delicious.”

The Baron of Baron’s Cove
June 2015

“At Baron’s Cove there is more than a hint of the new…. But there are also nods to the past, culinarily speaking. Sea maps and charts similar to those used by whalers in days of yore, adorn the walls of one of the dining rooms. Oenophiles can select from an extensive list of rare vintage offerings, curated by wine enthusiast and Water Mill resident, Jay McInerney. And then there’s the tapioca pudding, a truly old-fashioned favorite, which has made its way onto the dessert selections.”
