Southampton staple 75 Main, which is open all year-round, has debuted an appealing new Fall Menu which balances familiar favorites with new dishes, highlighting the very best of autumnal flavors and produce.



With October heralding the end of the Hamptons’ high season, the dispersing of crowds and traffic comes as a welcome relief for residents and the less-frequent fall visitors. 75 Main’s owner and restaurateur Zach Erdem says the offseason is very pleasant time to be in the Hamptons. “It’s so calm. There’s something so magical about the crisper sea air on an autumn day when the beach is virtually deserted.”

Monday night is all about the expertly-crafted pastas; guests can choose any soup or salad starter and any one of the restaurant’s delicious pasta entrees for $16. Every Sunday throughout fall, guests can enjoy steak specials; with any soup or salad starter you have the choice of the 75 Main Burger, Flat Iron Steak, Marinated Skirt Steak, or Hunger Steak for $18. From Tuesdays through to Fridays, 75 Main serves the popular 3-course pre-fixe dinners for only $29.95. Executive Chef Mark Militello’s flavorful new menu can be perfectly complemented with selections from 75 Main’s specialty cocktail menu and extensive wine list.

ZACH ERDEM TRANSFORMS 75 MAIN STREET

****
WORLD CLASS DINING
****

75 Main Street




Rising restaurateur Zach Erdem has gained considerable attention in the hospitality industry after transforming a seasonal Hamptons dining staple into a year-round hotspot. The dynamic 32-year-old has used his unique design to balance the classic style of the Hamptons with the enticing elements of New York City nightlife to reinvent the Southampton eatery, 75 Main. The ever popular restaurant and lounge has become a favorite among locals, visitors and celebrities alike, attracting Hollywood’s A-Listers and politicians such as Sarah Jessica Parker, LA Reid, Kelly Ripa, Stanley Tucci, Sofia Vergara, Howard Stern, Pierce Brosnan, Barbara Walters, Jodie Foster, Alex Rodriquez and Vice President Joe Biden.


Erdem’s esteemed reputation in the restaurant industry was not established overnight. After moving from Turkey to the United States in 2002, Erdem was struggling to make a living and had planned to move back home after just six months. With only sixty dollars in his pocket—which was loaned to him by a friend—Erdem decided to take a quick trip to the Hamptons two days before his scheduled flight. After arriving at the East End, he ordered lunch at the first restaurant he saw—75 Main.
