Mr. T and I said goodbye last night to Danny Meyer's first restaurant in NYC Union Square Cafe. This neighborhood staple will be closing it's doors on December 12th and moving into the old City Crab space in 6 months. It's wonderful the restaurant isn't closing for good but still somewhat bittersweet that the original space will be gone forever. I have so many fond memories of drinks at the bar and nibbling on their signature nut mix with cayenne pepper and rosemary.
And of course their fantastic Rib Eye served with a decadent Bearnaise sauce, roasted carrots and crispy fried potatoes.
Such a wonderful place. Cheers to 30 fantastic years; 16th Street just won't be the same without it.
