Hamptons Salt Company

The latest luxury in epicurean cooking is artisanal sea salt, particularly those made using only all natural ingredients. Enter Hampton Salt Company, founded by Peter Pierce to provide his family an organic alternative to chemical laden table salts. “As a concerned father, I am cautious about what my family eats and once I began researching salt, I discovered that most of the salt Americans consume is actually nothing more than chemicals. Refined salts are stripped of all natural minerals found in the sea and most contain potentially unhealthy anti-clumping additives,” says Pierce. “I went to our cupboard and got rid of all the refined salts, including my box of kosher salt. This is how Hamptons Salt Company was born and since then, I’ve created an amazing assortment of all natural salts from around the world.”

Pierce sources the globe to offer gourmands a variety of raw sea salts, flavored salts and smoked salts sure to spice up summer grilling and dining. Eleven varieties of raw salts ($9.99—$24.99) like Hawaiian Red and Hawaiian Black take the minerals of the islands and add texture, flavor, or color to fish, vegetables, and poultry while delicate Bali Pyramid is the perfect accouterment to bagels, pretzels, or chocolate. “Everyone should have our Cooking Salt ($9.99) and our Finishing Salt ($14.99) as staples in their pantry,” says Pierce. “Then you can experiment with one or two of our unique raw, flavored or smoked salts."

Hamptons Salt Company’s 13 varieties of infused salts ($21.99-$29.99) run the gamut of unique flavors, from the unbelievably spicy Ghost Pepper, to the sweet Vermont Maple Syrup, to more robust tastes such as Garlic and Rosemary or the decadent Black Truffle.

Five varieties of Smoked Salts ($21.99—$24.99) round out the catalog that’s sure to add a memorable kick to anyone’s summer cookout. Try the line’s Smoked Applewood, Bacon, Chardonnay Oak, Hickory, or Mesquite salts on grill meats, burgers, or vegetables—and let the compliments come rolling in. “I hope you’ll follow my challenge to rid your kitchen of refined salts and replace them with some of our amazing sea salts from around the globe,” says Pierce. “Our process is simple. We take great sea salt and combine it with all natural ingredients to produce powerful flavors with a slight sprinkle.”

75 Main In Southampton

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.”

75 Main Burger
Another advantage of fall are the excellent dining specials on offer, and 75 Main has some of the most enticing fall specials of all the restaurants in the Hamptons. 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.
