Ian Duke and partner David Hilty, the owners of the ever-popular Southampton Social Club and Union Burger Bar, have unveiled the East End’s hottest new dining destination: Union Sushi and Steak, a modern take on the steakhouses of old. Situated in the historic Bowden Square property that formerly housed the famous Herb McArthy’s, and co-located with Union Burger Bar, Union Sushi & Steak manages to fuse the energy of a supper club from the days of old with a modern ambiance. The cuisine is brought to you by award-winning Chef’s Scott Kampf and Marc Fasciana of varied fame and tenures. The delectable menu features Dry aged steaks that are courtesy of Niman Ranch in Colorado and the assorted fresh sushi and sashimi menu is both enticing and inventive. “We created Union Sushi & Steak because it’s what the people of Southampton are asking for,” Duke said. “Southampton has no year-round sushi restaurants and there is not a dedicated steakhouse. Right now, it’s a trek for a REAL roll-up-your-sleeves steakhouse dining experience.” Meanwhile, Duke’s award-winning burgers and fries spot, Union Burger Bar continues to serve up American comfort food in the adjacent space. As with the Southampton Social club, Union Sushi & Steak has that “Supper Club” feeling, albeit, for the more sophisticated. Picture this; dinner starts to wrap up, the keys on the baby grand start to dance, the DJ’’s music starts to intoxicate you, and the cocktails set the tempo. Since its opening, the new restaurant has received rave reviews and looks to continue to bring the very best supper club experience throughout the year. Ian Duke is also excited about his other all new dining venture, The Baylander. The World’s Smallest Aircraft Carrier, The Baylander has now docked on the West Harlem Piers at 125th Street and is on active duty as a riverfront bar and restaurant crewed by Ian Duke’s team from Prohibition, Union Sushi & Steak and Union Burger Bar. The Baylander Steel Beach offers the perfect escape from the bustle of the City to enjoy food and cocktails at the waterfront.
