On Saturday night, Danny Meyer's trailblazing restaurant Union Square Cafe served its last meal at its original home at 21 East 16th Street. In spring 2016, the restaurant will reopen a few blocks away in the old City Crab space at the corner of Park Avenue South and 19th Street. A tipster walking by yesterday afternoon took this photo from the street — is that a piano player providing music for the clean-up team? Perhaps. Check back later today for photos from Saturday night's grand farewell.
The team wasted no time clearing out the space.
