Union Square Hospitality’s Union Square Cafe is now open at its new location, at the corner of Park Avenue South and 19th Street. It is double the size of the original location, with a dining room accommodating 95 guests and two private dining rooms that altogether seat 40.
“We’ve so missed being able to welcome guests and longtime friends to Union Square Cafe over this past year, and I can’t overstate how soul-satisfying it will be to open our doors and bring Union Square Cafe back into our lives,” said Danny Meyer, CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group, according to a press release.
Executive chef Carmen Quagliata continues at the helm. He has made updates to the menu, which is seasonal with influences from Italy, France, and Northern California.
Union Square Cafe follows the hospitality group’s practice of eliminating tipping across all 13 of its New York restaurants.
Next door, the hospitality group is also opening Daily Provisions, a casual eatery that will carry breads made on-site, coffee from Joe Coffee, tea from In Pursuit of Tea, sandwiches, and salads. Growlers (of beer or coffee) will be available for guests to fill up.
Union Square Cafe is open daily for lunch and dinner. Daily Provisions to be open daily for breakfast and lunch.
