“I WANTED TO CREATE MY OWN FAVORITE RESTAURANT” -Danny Meyer, Setting the Table
One of America’s most acclaimed and popular restaurants Union Square Cafe serves robustly flavored, seasonal American cuisine in a relaxed setting of casual elegance. Union Square Cafe’s iconic food and gracious hospitality changed the restaurant landscape in New York City, and continue to set the bar for excellence and innovation under the helm of Executive Chef & Partner Carmen Quagliata and Managing Partner Sam Lipp. Sophisticated yet approachable, Union Square Cafe takes inspiration from the Greenmarket, the Union Square community, and its heritage. Showcasing exquisite local ingredients with provenance, Chef Quagliata’s creative, flavor-obsessed menu pays homage to his southern Italian and Californian roots.
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.”
