Bocce Union Square
This summer the Union Square community welcomed Bocce Union Square to the park's historic pavilion space. This brand new open-air eatery serves remarkably fresh hand-tossed pizzas from Executive Chef Timothy Meyers and pizza consultant Anthony Falco, both vets from Brooklyn's famed Roberta's Pizza. From their crazy-good pizzas and shareable plates to refreshing drinks and decadent desserts, we can't wait to try what this year's Restaurant Chair is cooking up for Harvest.
One of Long Island's most popular Greek restaurants made its Manhattan debut just months ago in Union Square. Executive Chef Chris Christou blends classic dishes from the Greek Islands with modern flavors, creating delicious meals like whole grilled fish, sagnaki, Hamachi crudo, and stuffed calamari. Sample this slice of Santorini under the big tent at Harvest this fall.
Le Coq Rico
The chicken takes center-stage at this new-American bistro serving heritage breed whole birds and decadent egg desserts. Executive Chef Antoine Westermann's distinctive cuisine earned Le Coq Rico two stars from New York Times Restaurant Critic Sasha Maslov. Join us under the tent to get a taste of some of the best poultry in NYC.
Meet the chefs behind this Southern Italian-inspired restaurant on 18th Street. Executive Chef PJ Calapa (behind the NYC favorite Spainard) fills the airy, communal dining space with fresh seafood dishes like grilled branzino, various crudos, and mafaldine pastas. Think: Under the Tuscan Sun meets Chef's Table.
This American brasserie made its debut at last year's Harvest in the Square, and is now back for their second year. Chef Ron Rosselli creates thoughtfully prepared, healthy dishes like roasted salmon, whole grain trumpet pasta, and Niman pork adobo. Each dish is seasonally inspired by the Union Square Greenmarket, where we catch Chef Rosselli shopping regularly.
