As an extension of our Valentine’s Day plans, my very wonderful boyfriend, Andrew took me out to eastern Long Island for a fun day of drinks, dinner and enjoying each other’s company. Luckily, it was beautiful weather for February and it really helped to make for a great day! I wanted to share our experience and also what I wore because this is a fashion blog you know. So, here we go!
We started our day at the Riverhead Ciderhouse. It’s exactly what it sounds like it is, a cider house or like a brewery for alcoholic cider. The building on it’s own is very cool and cozy. There’s lots of couches and first come first serve table seating to relax at and enjoy all kinds of cider, beer, wine and snacks. It was super crowded when we got there around 2 in the afternoon, so I would definitely recommend going early! We got 2 glasses of cider to start; I had the Strawberry Patch cider and my boyfriend got the Honey Crisp Bolt Apple Cider and we also shared a flight so we could try a few different flavors! My favorite ended up being a Blackberry Habanero cider. It was delicious! Of course, if we’re spending all day drinking, we need to refuel with some snacks so we also grabbed a giant pretzel and some chips and guacamole. I loved this place, it had such a good atmosphere and it’s probably really fun in the summer. I’m definitely looking forward to going back!
For dinner, we went to a waterfront restaurant called Cowfish in the Hampton Bays. It’s an American surf and turf restaurant with a great drink selection as well as amazing food! We had a reservation right at sunset and it was absolutely stunning. The sky was cotton candy colored and in combination with the drinks and food it was a great experience. I had the seared Ahi Tuna and Andrew had the Mahi which had Cajun seasoning. Both were delicious and we shared an appetizer of buffalo shrimp which was surprisingly good! The service was also good, our server was knowledgeable and friendly which is all you can really ask for, right! Me being the really good blogger than I am, did not snap any pics of the food there or the sunset but don’t you worry cause I got my outfit.
After dinner, we headed home to finish watching the show Lovesick on Netflix. We’re really into it right now but looking for a new show since we’re almost done with it! (Please send new Netflix suggestions, thanks.) It was such a great day and I would highly recommend both places if you’re ever looking to head out to the east end of Long Island!
