MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

An integral part of Manhattan's culinary scene, Union Square Cafe is big, bi-level and beautiful. The bar is perpetually abuzz with achingly trendy types, but with such a versatile and approachable menu boasting something for even the most picky eater, who can really complain?

Nobody does relaxed elegance like Danny Meyer, and this café is no exception. Service is exemplary whether you’re a local or Broadway star, and diners love the kitchen's upmarket take on crowd faves—everything from the hearty burger to a silky and savory cauliflower sformato that is surrounded by tender, flavorful romanesco (brassica). And with an option like the triple-layer chocolate cake with locally roasted espresso ganache on the carte, you’d be crazy to skip dessert.
