Union Square Cafe, a beloved Danny Meyer restaurant, that sadly closed its doors almost a year ago is set to re-open at a different location next week. Danny Meyer opened Union Square Cafe in 1985 but was forced to close it a year ago due to an increase in rent. The new Union Square Cafe will be just four blocks down from where it used to be located. The new location has increased the capacity to more than 150 and has also added a second bar upstairs. Other characteristics from the original restaurant have been added as well such as, warm cherry wood, dark-green wainscoting, decorative elements with an Arts and Crafts look, and most of the art on the walls. As for the menu, old favorites will be featured such as gnocchi, calamari fried in graham cracker crumbs, a tuna burger, pan-roasted chicken and a banana tart. The restaurant will now be baking its own bread now that there is more space available. To read more about the re-opening of the Union Square Cafe click here.
