New Yorkers can expect more from Danny Meyer this year: His Union Square Hospitality Group is behind a new project headed to the Flatiron District.
USHG has confirmed that a bar is planned for the neighborhood, though details are scarce for now. The prolific NYC restaurateur has a lot going on this year; earlier this month he opened Cedric’s, an all-day bar located in the lobby of the Shed, the high-profile arts center at Hudson Yards. It’s a living room-like space focused on cocktails, beer, and wine, with savory bar snacks.
Late last year, USHG also confirmed it would open a restaurant at Manhattan West, the Tenth Avenue development across the street from Hudson Yards — where the newly opened Cedric’s now lives. Details are also slim on that new restaurant, except that it’ll anchor the six-building development and only open in 2020.
As for the new Flatiron bar, no date has been set just yet. It’s a familiar neighborhood for the group, home to the iconic Gramercy Tavern, plus Union Square Cafe and Daily Provisions stand nearby.
Stay tuned for more.
