Restaurateur Danny Meyer’s famed Union Square Café reopened at the end of 2016 to much fanfare and took over a new, larger space just blocks from the original location. The look is decidedly refreshed, but still retains elements of the original, including dark wood furnishings, evergreen accents and contemporary art adorning the white walls. The two floors create more space for diners and offer an airy, convivial ambiance for beloved dishes like the burger (which launched Shake Shack), delicious pastas of parpardelle with duck confit and unique favorites like the pan-roasted venison. A well-edited list of craft cocktails and wines accompanies the menu.
