Called in for some lunch while shopping in Macys. Meals were HUGE. Could probably have shared one meal between two! All meals were tasty and well presented. No room for dessert!

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army
in the Civil War, this grand square has become the
city's premier shopping and entertainment district
containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and

You can call in advance but I don't think they take reservations. The best time to go is around 6 pm after that it gets really crowded. Enjoy!!!!
