|Slight changes to the main dining room, but the rooftop will stay the same|
Downtown hotspot Union has been a magnet for see-and-be-seen types since opening in November, thanks in large part to the swanky top floor dining room, with its bustling bar and retractable rooftop. The multilevel concept -- with Marquee in the basement, more formal dining in the middle level, and window-lined, four-season patio up top -- has worked well for the restaurant thus far, but it recently announced it will be making a few small adjustments regarding reservations in the main dining room.
Union's main-floor dining room will now be closed to the public from Sunday to Wednesday so the restaurant can make space available to large private parties and exclusive corporate events, reports the Downtown Journal
. It will still take reservations for couples and small groups as usual on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
If you're planning to dine at Union in the earlier part of the week, it might be helpful to know that there have also been some changes to the rooftop menu. Chef Jim Christiansen has added a handful of entree salads, including a classic Cobb salad with grilled steak and braised chicken Caesar; an oxtail burger and Union's take on a croque monsieur; and large plates, including steak frites and egg noodles with sautéed lamb, cumin, and chile oil.
