Has Danny Meyer Found the Next Home for Union Square Café?

Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group has filed for two liquor licenses at 7 Bryant Park

Could this be the next home of Danny Meyer's Union Square Café?

Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group looks to be opening a new project at 7 Bryant Park, the 30-story building that is currently under construction in New York City, though formal details have yet to be released.

USHG recently filed for two liquor licenses, including one for an additional bar for the premises, located at 1045 Avenue of the Americas.

Details are scarce, but the space, formerly the Milliken Building, does include a “ground floor programmed for a high-end restaurant,” according to Real Estate Week.

Outlets have already begun to speculate that 7 Bryant Park may be the next home of the beloved Union Square Café, which lost the lease for its iconic home of the past three decades this year, and must relocate by the end of next year.

In any case, we doubt that the future project inside 7 Bryant Park will be another Shake Shack, though yet another Shack is headed for New York City’s Herald Square.
