Union Sushi and Steak Opens in Southampton
Partners Ian Duke and David Hilty have announced that they will formally open Union Sushi and Steak, a modern take on steakhouses, located in the Bowden Square location that also houses the Union Burger Bar. The team are also owners of the Southampton Social Club.
The menu is being curated by award-winning chefs Scott Kampf and Marc Fasciana, with a French-inspired menu that features dry-aged steaks courtesy of Niman Rach in Colorado, as well as fresh sushi and sashimi.
“We created Union Sushi & Steak because it’s what the people of Southampton are asking for,” Mr. 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.”
The Union Burger Bar is also open for outdoor dining, delivery, pick-up and catering.

“The Old Stove Pub holds a special place in the hearts of Hamptonites,” notes Mr. DeCristofaro. “The history of the Pub is so rich, and restoring this property was a true labor of love. We are proud to introduce the new and improved Old Stove Pub back into the community at this moment and looking forward to a very special summer and fall.”
Mr. DeCristofaro, a Southampton local born and raised in the Hamptons, is a local real estate broker, real estate investor, and entrepreneur. A hospitality industry veteran, Mr. DeCristofaro’s past endeavors include numerous restaurants in the Hamptons and elsewhere.
With customer safety and safe distancing a major concern, the Old Stove Pub has transformed a large outdoor space replete with a dining patio and large grounds offering picnic tables, waitress service and lite fare. Indoors also offers several dining areas as well, with plenty of room for social distancing.
Diners can expect a Greek and Mediterranean influenced and locally sourced menu, featuring some of the Old Stove Pub’s best-known classic dishes such as the Sagaponack dry-rubbed steak and Greek salad.
