An Elevated Lifestyle Celebrated Outdoors in the Hamptons


In today’s fast paced world – celebrating life’s most memorable moments usually happens outside the house. Unfortunately not as much as should be outside in one’s own yard but instead opting for a destination solely set up for entertaining and catering. These establishments are most definitely breathtaking, and comforting for the intended party to gather outdoors and socialize with friends and family by soothing waterfalls, colorful landscaping, glowing fire bowls and great food serving staff.

“Perhaps it’s time to indulge in FABULOUS… Outdoor Kitchen Fabulous”

The memories are everlasting and so is the visual experience of the locale that hosted the event.


This so called catered event can be carefully crafted and implemented in one’s own back yard. A great resort like oasis with music, lighting, plantings and a fabulous outdoor kitchen for friends and family to gather and converse the day away. Whether you are cooking and serving all your guests or are having it catered, the difference here is that it is an event held at your own place on your own time line.  A very gratifying feeling for most. The result of the time reflected has a lot in part to do with the layout and vibe of your backyard and the type of outdoor kitchen and outdoor dining space you have.

Hamptons Fabulous Outdoor Kitchens and rewarding lifestyles

“A Fabulous outdoor kitchen celebrates the rewarding lifestyle of the owners” – Michael Gotowala founder of The Outdoor Kitchen Design Store

A successful outdoor kitchen has the best products for the Outdoor Kitchen strategically positioned and no compromise is made in matching the Outdoor Kitchen intent. Outdoor Kitchens designed with the chef in mind

“A rewarding lifestyle shared with family and friends celebrating life’s most memorable moments Outdoors is our signature to every outdoor kitchen we build”

It was a perfect Friday night in East Hampton as the owner’s of this new Outdoor Kitchen were asked to assemble some of their friends and “besties” to celebrate a most dear event of a birthday party for the queen of the family. What we had in store for them they were quite unsure at first. As a thank you for entrusting our vision and involvement in building them a seriously fabulous outdoor kitchen, we brought in a HamptonsFabulous Chef Rudy Straker “Chopped finalist” and his team to cook and host a great outdoor event.  One of my passions after building outdoor kitchen spaces is to inspire success in cooking, dining and entertaining outdoors.

Outdoor Food continues to be FABULOUS in the HAMPTONS

The Lifestyle of the owners becomes elevated when one can seamlessly entertain indoors and outdoors. A well equipped outdoor kitchen actually doubles the space of the indoor kitchen and on a perfect Summer night in the Hamptons Life’s moments are shared outdoors.

A secret to our success in building award winning and rewarding lifestyle outdoor kitchens is to understand each and every family member and carry some of their comfort level outdoors. Whether its a small family gathering, a larger catered event or simply anchoring teens to your backyard, the outdoor kitchen intent and outdoor living space are considered and designed accordingly.


A Birthday Party for HER and a Birthday present for HIM.

I recall the homeowner approaching me during the party and revealed that this was just the best to see his family and dearest friends outside his back door spending endless hours outdoors. It was so much more than building an outdoor kitchen to me to be able to impact his life and inspire him to be successful outdoors. He did mention he usually goes out for fourth of July but next summer he would so hold it here in his #HamptonsSummerHome. See more on Instagram @HamptonsFabulous

Then abruptly his friend came over and shook my hand and said job well done and explained he would get the “play by play” as we were building the outdoor kitchen but to see it finished in action was something else. He then confided in me saying it was a great night for his friend’s wife birthday was a hit but the Hamptons Outdoor Kitchen was much more for him. Outdoor Kitchens designed with the chef in mind

When you are confident and most successful outdoors with your outdoor kitchen you begin to expand your culinary menu and that’s what Outdoor Cooking in the Hamptons is all about.
