There’s nostalgia to spare this year at Union Square Cafe, what with the restaurant planning to close at its current location after 30 years in business there. A series of seasonal dinners, with menu items reflecting the restaurant’s history, are planned. At the first one, on March 16, guests will revisit the yellowfin tuna “mignon” and roast peppered duck with Meyer lemon. Subsequent dinners will be June 15, Aug. 31 and Nov. 9: Union Square Cafe seasonal dinners, $99, 21 East 16th Street, 212-243-4020, unionsquarecafe.com.
