Spring 2017 is the ideal time to visit New York’s East End and to enjoy modern Mexican cuisine at Union Cantina, one of the highlights of Southampton’s social and culinary scene. Union Cantina, designed by Southampton Social Club owners Ian Duke and David Hilty, sits in the iconic Bowden Square and is open all year-round. Working alongside award winning Executive Chef Scott Kampf, who has been featured on Food Network’s Iron Chefs of America, the trio continues to bring innovative Mexican cuisines to Southampton throughout the year.
Union Cantina’s winning Everyday Happy Hour concept continues to draw locals and visitors alike. On Margarita Mondays, Union Cantina offers 2 for 1 margaritas all day and night. On Taco Tuesdays, diners can enjoy half price tacos all night long, and on Wine Down Wednesdays the restaurant offers 1/2 off on wine and sangria, and kids eat for free. Thursday is Ladies Night, which means discounted drinks for the ladies and Union Cantina’s “jam session”, featuring new live music weekly. The weekend kicks off with Live Music Fridays starting at 9:30pm, and continues with Live Music Saturday Nights. On Saturdays & Sundays, Union Cantina also offers a bottomless brunch.
Guests craving Mexican with a spin will enjoy the Mexican Pizza topped with black beans, heirloom tomatoes, black olives layered over a Mexican cheese blend, sour cream and pico de gallo. From the Taco menu, the Langosta with fresh lobster, pico de gallo, fresh avocado and lime poblano cream is a customer favorite. The Truffle Queso is offered on the Quesadilla menu including sliced black truffles in a decadent six-cheese blend. The Deconstructed Enchilada is a Union Cantina specialty worth every bite. There is a variation suited for all appetites including the Marinated Aracherras (skirt steak), the Robalo Rayados (striped bass), the Picante Camrones (spicy shrimp), the Pollo Tirada (pulled chicken) and Vegetales (vegetables). For dessert, diners can indulge in Churros with Nutella dipping cream or the toasted coconut Tres Leches Cake.
The restaurant sits behind the 400 Rabbits Tequila Bar, which is reminiscent of a prohibition-era speakeasy. The tequila bar carries more than 100 types of tequila producing a unique signature cocktail program and an extensive tequila menu consisting of sangrias, punches and frozen drinks. Popular cocktails include: The Classic Margarita blending Cabo Wabo Reposado Tequila; Frozen Margarita with fruit flavors such as mango, strawberry, passion fruit, blood orange and prickly pear; the Warren cocktail which blends 1942 Don Julio, grand marnier, centenario tequila with fresh lime juice; and the 65 Mustang cocktail, which is a bold combination of Bullet Bourbon, pressed cider, fresh lime plus bitters and mints.
Union Cantina’s festive atmosphere incorporates both the sleekness of the Hampton’s high society with the rustic beauty of Mexican culture. The dark woods are balanced by the bright cerulean colored walls, and are also decorated with Mexican artwork. Union Cantina is the hotspot all year-round for festive dining, live music and A-list celebrations!
