The Village Voice voted this Best Bar for Modelizers in our Best Of New York Poll!
1. Put away your pride for an hour (staff consists mostly of models);2. Order the herb fries.
FYI - The Coffee Shop has great food, but is haunted by some of the rudest hostesses ever. You've been warned!
They're aspiring models, not real models, so yeah, you probably have a chance.
Java spot for founder and VC types.
Great Burgers and delicious fries
Stop by for brunch .. The cafe is open .. Perfect for people watching !!
Pitch your startup to First Round Capital here. They're right across the street.
Bring your appetite and patience. The food is good, the eye candy better - but the service is always crap
Get yourself a booth between 8:15 and 9:30 AM and try to gather pieces of discussions from Silicon Alley shrewdest investors and innovators...
Awesome greek salad and anything from the brunch menu! Also known for their drinks and bar!
I think eveyone who works here is a model
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.
The lounge downstairs is pretty dope. Very chill on the weekends
Phone Battery Dead? Check out the Solar Battery Docking Station for your mobile phone on Union Square West btwn 14th & 15th Streets!
Decent food, crap service, pretty people.
The cafe is open on this sunny day come out for lunch alfresco
Wow, it's where I want to go.
We have a soft spot for this chill (and still chic) joint. Their Jazzy Brunch is fun (try the English Grill) and the tuna over greens is a favorite.
Breakfast or not, the California Wrap is the way to go!
I think this place is staffed with nothing but models!
pao de queijo are addictive
go here a rethink your sordid life!!
DON'T. JUST DON'T
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.
Everything's good. But what a burger!
Be aware that there is typically a tip included in your bill.
It would help tremendously if the service here was better! Above average food, less than wonderful service.
Hoegaarden to start. Gets ya going like Luther Vandros.
Reaaaaally good fries. REALLY good.
Horrible service. Forgotten orders and passive aggressive drink slams for ordering water. Only thing that keeps me coming back is the Sesame Chicken Salad.
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
Had the Quesadilla and a Caipirinha to drink. Nice after work, late night chill spot.
calling all brazilians.. #funfact: they have pão de queijo here!
They have live Brazilian acoustic music at their weekend brunches!
Food was decent. The place is a mess and sticky. Servers are dumb as a box of hair.
The waitstaff here is terrible, but the food is good, it's fabulous for celeb spotting and people watching and tons of movies and TV shows have filmed here!
A modelizer institution
Pão de queijo and Maracuja (Passion Fruit) Batidas.
Open 23 hours a day and the sesame chicken salad is to die for!
Nice husband/wife team will cook you just about anything. I like the grilled cheese or the pastrami on rye. Everything is quick and cheap!
Worst service ever! Food mediocre. You can be hot and competent, I promise
There's something here for everyone. A healthy salad or a rich milkshake or breakfast foods. We love love love the cheesecake!!!!
No wifi but if you sit close to the windows you can get the free Union Sq wifi!
