Union Square Cafe

OPENED1784 DAYS AGO

Danny Meyer’s iconic flagship restaurant, Union Square Café, reopens today in the former location of City Crab on east 19th street. We may have seen it before, but we still consider it one of the best new places to eat in Midtown Manhattan, NYC.

The restaurant features two added rooms one private dining, and one semi-private together accommodating 40 guests, two bars, and a cocktail lounge. The new space will increase the capacity to more than 150.

The ambiance of the restaurant will also be enhanced by collection of original works by artists Jonathan Borofsky, Richard Polsky, Claes Oldenberg, and Frank Stella. David Rockwell, founder of Rockwell Group designs the new space evoking and capturing a sense of familiarity to the original restaurant while enabling authenticity in a new form.

Union Square Café 2.0 will feature a refreshed farm-to-table seasonal menu with new dishes like the tortellini en brodo, the braised lamb shank with salsa verde, and fresh baked bread. Menu will also include familiar dishes such as the gnocchi, and fried calamari in graham cracker crumbs.

Executive chef Carmen Quagliata said, “I’m excited to bring this new space to life with the dishes we have been working on for the last 10 months. It puts a big smile on my face to settle back into the cadence of the kitchen, and re-engage with Greenmarket, the seasons, and our guests.”

Union Square Café’s new wine director, Jason Wagner, has updated the wine list, but most importantly will focus on the established relationships the restaurant has built with vintners and wineries over 30 years.

Union Square Café, like all USHG’s restaurants, will have the no tipping policy; service will be included in the menu prices. Reservations will be accepted by phone and online.
