Bastian headed to Union Square Cafe in NYC

So we hit up this NY classic joint with some out of town friends and family. I had only been once before and that was only for cocktails years ago. B man felt necessary to put on the Paparazzi shades for the occasion.

Afterwards, it was great to hit up the playground. So I have to say Union square location does have that as a plus after the meal.

RANKINGRiding Dirty (1)- the lowest of the low;  Strollin (5)- kindly asked us to hit the road; Rollin (10)- these ballers know how to roll.

The Spot: “The Union Square Cafe”  21 E 16th St, New York, NY 10003 (212) 243-4020

  • Baby B Rank:  Strollin- They did seat us with the stroller, which was smaller than usual this time bc we had the car seat in rather than the bassinet this time. We called ahead of time, but still had to wait for them to put the table together. It was a lunch time rush perhaps, and they were able to seat us, just not too excited about it.
  • Food: The food is good and has interesting choices. It’s not the spot to hit if you’re starving or want to pay less than $50 bucks. Skate Sandwich was very good, and filled me up. My husband was less than thrilled with the pasta choices for the price. We also sampled a sunflower root app which I didn’t see on the menu -we knew the waitress so I think she hooked us up- but I never had that before and it was awesome!
  • Price: Super expensive for bopping a baby on your lap while eating. Save for a date night.
  • Location:  Union Square
