There appears to be a bit of musical chairs going on in the Union Square area.

After much speculation as to his next move, Danny Meyer finally found a new home this summer for his Union Square Cafe on the site of what was City Crab, at 235 Park Avenue South. While David Rockwell's crew is busy converting that space, Andrew Silverman, a partner in City Crab, has closed Little Sal's, his year-old neighborhood Italian spot across from the current Union Square Cafe, at 10 East 16th St, and Eater recently spotted the City Crab truck parked outside.  A peek inside showed a gleaming fish tank, paintings of crabs, and a wooden sign that said salmon/sardines. Although the name still seems to be undecided, a company staffer said, "We are being told it's turning into a crab shack like City Crab.''
