Recognized as one of Long Island’s best brunch spots by USA Today Travel’s 10best.com, Southampton eatery 75 Main has been a favorite among locals, visitors and celebrities alike for more than 30 years. Owner Zach Erdem, a rising restaurateur, has transformed the Hamptons summer dining staple into a year-round restaurant and lounge with an expertly crafted menu, sophisticated decor and the addition of post-dinner entertainment, maintaining the perfect balance between the classic style of the Hamptons and the allure of New York City nightlife. 75 Main unites Italian, Asian and Caribbean influences, presenting a unique menu featuring contemporary American cuisine prepared by James Beard Award-winning Executive Chef Mark Militello. After dinner, guests can enjoy 75 Main’s exclusive nightlife scene, as the restaurant converts into one of the hottest lounges on the East End, featuring well-known DJs, live bands and drink specials.
75 Main’s contemporary décor features a soothing, white color palette and rich dark wood accents, creating a relaxing atmosphere with classic Hamptons elegance. Large windows highlight the restaurant’s prime Main Street location and bathe its spacious interior in sunlight throughout the year. Bringing a touch of color to the serene space, 75 Main’s crisp white walls provide a chic gallery for Sports Illustrated photographer Raphael Mazzucco’s latest work. Large glass doors toward the rear of the restaurant lead to an outdoor patio where guests can dine al fresco during the summer months. At night, 75 Main’s white walls are transformed with flashes of colored light and the central, square-shaped bar becomes the venue’s social hub as it transitions seamlessly from restaurant to lounge. •
