Foursquare Tips

  • They're aspiring models, not real models, so yeah, you probably have a chance.
  • Bring your appetite and patience. The food is good, the eye candy better - but the service is always crap
  • More deals made per square foot than anywhere else south of 34th Street. Where nigthlife spends the day, if it wakes up before dusk. Juice bar strongly recommended for hair of the dog. [BlackBook]
  • Yes, it's actually a restaurant, and surprise, their specialty is authentic Brazilian! Get the shrimp baiano, a shrimp stew from Bahia, that comes with kale, fried plantains and plenty of white rice.
  • 1. Put away your pride for an hour (staff consists mostly of models);2. Order the herb fries.
  • Model service?
  • The Village Voice voted this Best Bar for Modelizers in our Best Of New York Poll!
  • The cafe is open on this sunny day come out for lunch alfresco
  • Wow, it's where I want to go.
  • Pitch your startup to First Round Capital here. They're right across the street.
  • I think this place is staffed with nothing but models!
  • Phone Battery Dead? Check out the Solar Battery Docking Station for your mobile phone on Union Square West btwn 14th & 15th Streets!
  • FYI - The Coffee Shop has great food, but is haunted by some of the rudest hostesses ever. You've been warned!
  • go here a rethink your sordid life!!
  • Also a Brazilian restaurant
  • i will never go to this place again. i used to go ~3 times per week for breakfast. Bad service, uncomfortable seating, and ultimately a nasty hostess refusing to seat me has led to a permanent boycott
  • DON'T. JUST DON'T
  • cute waitresses
  • I come here when I'm sad and hungry at 1am and want to get drunk and eat plantains and they don't judge me. 10/10
  • Here's the thing, the food here isn't really anything to write home about (except the Truffle Fries, duh), but it's a fun place to sip a cocktail and be seen.
