“I WANTED TO CREATE MY OWN FAVORITE RESTAURANT” -Danny Meyer, Setting the Table
The original; Union Square Cafe was Danny Meyer’s first restaurant, opened in 1985, when he was just 27 years old. Now serving Chef Carmen Quagliata’s American cuisine with an Italian soul, Union Square Cafe remains at the forefront of New York’s dining scene, offering a continually fresh, evolving, seasonal menu and James Beard Award-winning wine list.
A critical success from the outset, Union Square Cafe has been ranked the #1 Most Popular Restaurant in the Zagat Survey an unprecedented nine times. The restaurant has earned several James Beard Awards, including “Best Chef: New York City”, “Outstanding Restaurant”, and “Outstanding Wine Service.”
