Our summer #FoodTrip through the Hamptons continues. This time we’re kicking things off in Montauk and cruising to Watermill in Audi’s gorgeous 2018 Q5, while stopping for delicious food along the way. Grab your keys. It’s time to hit the road.
Whether you want to bring the whole family along or gather up your friends for an epic day, the newly redesigned Audi Q5 SUV has all the room you need to drive in style and comfort. The cargo space has plenty of room for all of your road trip essentials including towels and umbrellas in case you want to stop by the beach along the way. And thanks to the car’s hands-free tailgate release, loading up the car will be breeze.
Where to Go for Breakfast: Montauk
The first stop on the #FoodTrip itinerary is breakfast at the Montauk Yacht Club. Here, you can dig into chef Richard Hebson’s buttery egg croissant sandwiches, buttermilk pancakes, or vanilla waffles topped with chocolate chips, whipped cream, and maple syrup. And did we mention there’s also Nutella caramel apple French toast on the menu? Yup, you’re in for a real treat. 32 Star Island Rd., Montauk, 668-3100
Once you’re done with your mouthwatering breakfast, hop back into your Audi Q5 and blast some road trip tunes from the Bang & Olufsen sound system complete with 19 speakers, a 16-channel amplifier, and 755 watts of power. Then buckle up because the Q5 can go from 0-60mph in just 5.9 seconds.
Where to Go for Lunch: Bridgehampton
Since breakfast was so indulgent, we’re opting for a light and healthy lunch at Pierre’s in Bridgehampton. This chic and casual spot is oozing with St. Barths vibes, which only makes the #FoodTrip that much better. Start with an organic smoothie like the Tropi-kale (coconut milk, fresh mango, pineapple, and kale). For the main attraction, order a healthy salad filled with seared salmon, mushrooms, and fresh anchovies. 2468 Main St., Bridgehampton, 537-5110
Finding directions to spots you want to sightsee between lunch and dinner will be effortless thanks to the Q5’s navigation system (replete with Google Earth and Google Street View options) that can project onto the windscreen. And the MMI touchpad can actually read your writing, which means no more fumbling to type in street addresses.
Where to Go for Dinner: Watermill
You had lunch in St. Barths now get ready for dinner in Mykonos. Calissa, a Greece-inspired spot in Watermill, promises a veritable feast. Think lobster bucatini, salt-baked whole fish, grilled pork chops, and Portuguese octopus. Then toast the end of your memorable road trip across the Hamptons with something bubbly or an ice cold beer. 1020 Montauk Hwy, Water Mill, 500-9292
