It appears that Vogue’s fashionistas have a soft spot for the East End.

An article posted on the magazine’s website April 4 titled “7 Great Island Vacations — No Passport Required” extols the virtues of eastern Long Island  — especially those of the North Fork and Shelter Island.

“[F]or those who prefer a slightly quieter side of New York’s island getaway, there’s also Shelter Island and the North Fork to explore,” the article states. “[M]ake your way to the North Fork, where in place of mega-mansions you’ll find rows of working farms (and farm stands) and local wineries to visit.”

Vogue’s favorite North Fork hotels, restaurants and stores include the Greenporter Hotel, North Fork Table and Inn in Southold, Lido boutique in Greenport and Orient’s Four and Twenty Blackbirds pie shop.

The article suggests you “eat as many meals as possible at the heavenly North Fork Table and Inn and its adjoining backyard food truck.”

When visiting Shelter Island, Vogue gave equal love to the Chequit and the splashier Sunset Beach hotel.

” … check into the enchanting Chequit and take a swim in the mellow waters of the sound,” it reads. “When you start to crave some company, head to the Andre Balazs-owned Sunset Beach.”

Those excellent choices already have us pining for summer.
