About Union Cantina
Union Cantina is owned by Southampton Social Club’s Ian Duke and David Hilty, who 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.
The restaurant is open year round for lunch and dinner and features a bottomless brunch on Saturday and Sundays. The space also incorporates a former prohibition speakeasy which has reopened as the 400 Rabbits Tequila Bar, and carries 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. The restaurant is situated in the iconic Bowden Square. 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.
