THE LONG WEEKEND

James Andrew on the Cape


Last week we were dining in the city at Isle of Capri (a classic NYC 1950s restaurant) with some rather fabulous friends, and they invited us to the Cape for a long weekend. We of course jumped at the opportunity to escape the city – the weather here has been frightfully hot as many of you know, so any chance to get away is a welcome thing!

Traveling with several gift bottles of Chateau d’Esclans Les Clans rosé for our most gracious hosts, we arrived for a late dinner – the wine was obviously very well received!

We lounged on the beach, basked in the sun, and caught up on some reading. My book: The Long Weekend – Life in the English Country House 1918-1939 – a perfect read for our stay.

Grilled summer foods and copious lobster rolls were the order of the day, and on Saturday evening, we were treated to Rye Tavern (former Wright Tavern) for a most sublime dinner. A “slice of Colonial America,” Chef Andrew Swain’s menu is a terrific take on “farm to table” cuisine, with only the freshest ingredients and some truly unique combinations of flavors. Sensational. We enjoyed pre-dinner martinis in the garden while waiting to dine al fresco on the tavern’s patio. And of course I did my best not to disappoint with a variety of sartorial ensembles expressing my own version of Cape Cod style. We returned to New York City on Monday afternoon a bit more tan and feeling infinitely more refreshed after our wonderful weekend!

I’m wearing (top) a pink silk Tom Ford “Spencer” jacket, custom pale blue cotton linen shirt with contrast white collar and cuffs, pearl and pale blue sapphire cuff links, vintage Rolex, JKP woven white cotton belt, Ralph Lauren pink and blue paisley cotton voile pocket square, Our Legacy hemp and silk shorts, Polo Ralph Lauren pale blue leather “topsiders,” a vintage straw hat that belonged to Scott McBee’s mother, a royal blue and white silk scarf, and my fragrance is Tom Ford Neroli Portofino.
