This season, Lexi Stolz and Louisa Young launch Hamptons Aristocrat, a culinary delivery service that operates out of a 1969 Lo-Liner food truck.
“It was very organic,” Lexi Stolz says of her partnership with chef Louisa Young and the creation of Hamptons Aristocrat. Her word choice is apt, for she and Young share a passion for bringing locally sourced produce to their customers in sustainable ways. Stolz founded her Hamptons-based culinary concierge service, South Fork and Spoon, in 2013, and Young owns the farm-to-table catering company Ango in New York City.
Over the past year, Stolz noticed the challenges of throwing events in the Hamptons (limited food-delivery options, costly catering, hard-to-get reservations, and grocery store lines on Fridays, to name a few) and sought to address these issues. “My clients were feeling overwhelmed with all the contracts, rentals, and hefty set-up times,” she explains. Enter Hamptons Aristocrat: A 1969 Aristocrat Lo-Liner, the prep-kitchen-on-wheels has allowed Stolz and Young to bring in the rentals and staff, as well as accommodate short-notice bookings and tailor-made events.
From traditional food truck–style menus to formal menus and passed hors d’oeuvres, Hamptons Aristocrat prides itself on personalization. The Moonlight Dinner is a seven-course tasting menu (serves 10 to 25 guests at $125 per person) that includes everything: furniture and place settings, flowers and décor, and provides options like BYOB and individual guest checks. Produce and other ingredients are handpicked from The Green Thumb, Good Water Farms, and Carissa’s Breads, among others, and planned in collaboration with Amagansett Food Institute, a nonprofit membership organization comprised of farmers, producers, and consumers on the East End.
Menus change monthly and are available for delivery. “Whether it be upon arrival on a Friday night or a last-minute pool party, meals can be delivered within two hours,” Stolz adds. 488-0581
