We had heard so much about Union Square and were anxiously looking forward to dining here. We started with the gnocchi, which at best were tasteless. My wife had the roast chicken which was not as good as what she makes at home. I had...More

I’ve been trying to go here since the new place opened. We had been at closing night in the old location. It was well worth the wait. Great atmosphere and food along with stellar service made for a great night. Can’t wait to go back.

This is our first visit to new location. It did not disappoint. A very long leisurely lunch was just what we needed. Appetizer, main and dessert just what the taste buds ordered. Great wine selection by glass, half bottle, bottle. I'm not sure what was...More

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
