Union Cantina

Do not miss this season’s flavorful new addition to Hamptons dining - Union Cantina! Owners of the Southampton Social Club Ian Duke and David Hilty have teamed up with Southampton Social Club’s award-winning Executive Chef Scott Kampf to create this innovative modern Mexican eatery in the old “Publick House” space, designed just for Southampton. Chef Kampf, who has been featured on the legendary television show Iron Chefs of America, brings his dedication to the classic “farm to table” cooking style to the new Union Cantina.

The menu includes signature dishes such as the Castilla de Res Mole – a beef short rib with sweet local corn bread pudding, charred heirloom carrots and mole sauce, and the innovative Deconstructed Enchiladas, which come in five variations: Marinated Aracherras (skirt steak), Robalo Rayados (striped bass), Picante Camarones (spicy shrimp), Pollo Tirada (pulled chicken) and Vegetales (vegetable). Pair these flavorful dishes with Union Cantina’s signature cocktail Cinnamon Sol, which is a refreshing mix of Don Julio Reposado, cinnamon, pineapple & fresh lime juices.

Short Rib With Mole Sauce

The restaurant is open year round for lunch and dinner and will feature a bottomless brunch on Saturday and Sundays. The space also incorporates a former prohibition speakeasy which reopened as the 400 Rabbits Tequila Bar, which will carry more than 100 types of tequila. Diners can also enjoy the outside bar and café space which will remain open throughout the warmer months. A signature cocktail program is offered, featuring an extensive tequila menu, in addition to sangrias, punches and frozen drinks.

Hamptons Chic Meets Rustic Cantina

The restaurant is situated in the iconic Bowden Square, which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year. The square offers a central meeting point in Southampton to gather with friends and family for great food and drinks. Union Cantina pays homage to this historic building by keeping the original features while giving the space a modern touch.

The décor, which is best described as “Hamptons chic meets Rustic Cantina”, features a mixture of dark woods, Spanish glass and vibrant Mexican artwork. The bars have been restored to their original beauty from days long past and the newly renovated outdoor bar is the feature of a reclaimed wood art installation. The venue seats over 200 indoors, with an outdoor patio that seats 35 for dinner and assorted lawn seating.

What will the Southampton Inn restaurant be for 2016? With a new name, concept, manager and executive chef, Clyde’s Restaurant features a wholesome and healthy menu designed by Executive Chef Scott Adriani featuring all of the guest selected favorite foods from the past five years.

Opening in May 2016, Clyde’s will continue its Dan’s Paper’s “Best of the Best” daily breakfast. Clyde’s classic breakfast specials include Eggs Any Style, which features two farm fresh eggs to order, and Clyde’s Omelet, which is a build-your-own omelet with 2 ingredients of your choice. Other favorites on the breakfast menu are Eggs Benedict, Blueberry Pancakes, Jobs Lane French Toast and the Smoked Salmon Platter. For an extra boost of vitamin C, try the Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice as an accompaniment to your Freshly Brewed Colombian Coffee or choice of Fine Tea.

Guest voted lunch favorites include a Lobster Roll, Roasted Turkey Club and Classic Caesar Salad. The pool patio bar will open in the afternoon and serve up floats, shakes and tropical drinks all day.

Clyde’s is planned to be open year round to support corporate groups, full service catering, as well as the local community.
