Jack and I are in NYC this week on our annual fall trip. We dined at Union Square Cafe this evening. Owner Danny Meyer wrote Setting The Table last year and the two of us decided we need to check if the theory was put into practice.

The experience was amazing. Our waiter Cyrus connected with us immediately and correctly recommended the Saison Du Pont. Jack had the cod and I enjoyed the lobster "Shepard's Pie" (layered from the bottom with spinach, mushroom, lobster meat, and mashed potatoes).

It is tough to get a reservation. Your best bet (the method we used as recommended in the WSJ) is using Open Table and reserving a table 28 days before your date.
