Asian Fusion Gastrolounge Debuts

Union will spice up Delray with robust flavors and innovative vodka infusions DELRAY BEACH FL – South Florida entrepreneurs Stephen Chin and Scott Kennedy are the masterminds behind the new Asian Fusion gastrolounge concept called Union, now open at 8 East Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. Chin and Kennedy say the focus was to create a different neighborhood dining experience for Delray locals. “Union is all about putting an electric and fun spin to conventional dining on the Avenue with small touches of pop culture,” said Kennedy

“It’s an anything goes mentality with laser beam lights reflecting off the wallscapes, Palm Beach County’s largest paneled flat screen wall display playing anything from cult movie classics to music videos, a center hanging disco ball, astro turf on the patio and a mesmerizing selection of homemade vodka infusions.”
To bring Union’s culinary credo to life, Chin and Kennedy tapped acclaimed young and spirited Rich Achaia as Union’s Executive Chef. With a commitment to making great cuisine affordable, Union’s menu organizes plates by size – small, medium and large with items priced at $19 or less, making it the newest member of the burgeoning breed of economically-friendly epicurean hotspots. Culinary standouts at Union include: Garlic Blue Crab and Shrimp with garlic- infused egg noodles; Miso Poached Cod with julienne vegetables and brown rice cake; Kung Pao Lamb Chops served with sushi rice and stir-fried vegetables; Red Curry Roasted Mussels in lemongrass; and Thai basil broth topped with crispy pork belly. Cocktail adventurists will appreciate Union’s handcrafted drinks and decadent ‘liquid desserts’ fashioned from an expansive selection of house-infused vod-kas including Yellow Skittle, Green Apple Jolly Rancher, Marshmallow, Black Seedless Grape and others. Fun garnishes include vodka-infused gummi bears, tequila-infused gummy worms and chocolate/graham cracker rims. Bar cotton candy machines spinning swirls of Union’s proprietary lychee cotton candy flavor trump traditional bar nuts to create mouthwatering Cotton Candy Tinis. Plans are in the works for a Union Super Bowl 2012 party offering the big game playing from Union’s state-of-the-art HD television ‘wall’, fashioned from sixteen independent 46” inch flat screens. Other promotions will include educational dining events hosted by Executive Chef Achaia, molecular gastrono- my nights, nostalgic karaoke night and Union happy hour.
