Union Square Café
Same sign. Different address. First went there in 1994 when Danny Meyer was an up-and-coming restaurateur. American fare with attention to service and fresh ingredients. The original was a little bit downstairs. This later iteration has the same vibe but with an above-the-ground and upstairs feel. Yet. Both intimate and inviting.
Uniquely New York. Reminiscent of its dining heyday.
In the neighborhood to see Peter Dinklage as Cyrano. Way cool.
