Southampton’s New Dining Hot Spot Union Sushi and Steak Opens for Summer 2020
After months indoors, the Hamptons are getting the perfect spot to blow off steam. This summer, Ian Duke and partner David Hilty, the owners of the ever-popular Southampton Social Club and Union Burger Bar, are unveiling the East End’s hottest new dining destination: Union Sushi and Steak, a modern take on the steakhouses of old.
Situated in the historic Bowden Square property that formerly housed the famous Herb McArthy’s, Union Sushi & Steak manages to blend all of the warmth of a local village pub and the energy of a supper club from the days of old. The cuisine is brought to us by award-winning Chef’s Scott Kampf and Marc Fasciana of varied fame and tenures. The French American inspired menu features Dry aged steaks that are courtesy of Niman Ranch in Colorado and the assorted fresh sushi and sashimi menu is both enticing and inventive.
“We created Union Sushi & Steak because it’s what the people of Southampton are asking for,” Duke said. “Southampton has no year-round sushi restaurants and there is not a dedicated steakhouse. Right now, it’s a trek for a REAL roll-up-your-sleeves steakhouse dining experience.”
Meanwhile, Duke’s award-winning burgers and fries spot, Union Burger Bar will continue to serve up American comfort food in the adjacent space.
As with the Southampton Social club, Union Sushi & Steak will have that “Supper Club” feeling, albeit, for the more sophisticated. Picture this; dinner starts to wrap up, the keys on the baby grand start to dance, the DJ’’s music starts to intoxicate you, and the cocktails set the tempo. Welcome to Union Steak & Sushi!
