We offer full lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch menus with daily specials in the dining room and at the bar. As Danny Meyer’s first restaurant, Union Square Cafe is the birthplace of a generation of widely lauded, award-winning restaurants, and an enormous number of world-renowned chefs. Union Square Cafe’s iconic food and gracious hospitality changed the restaurant landscape in New York City and continue to set the bar for excellence and innovation.

Auden Bistro & Bar brings to The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park an ideal dining destination featuring Chef Mark Arnao’s refined adaptation of traditional bistro cuisine. Featuring clean flavors, and simple, yet refined presentations, the menu emphasizes regionally sourced ingredients and sustainable seafood. The world famous design firm, The Rockwell Group, has created a beautiful open-floor plan design, tying together the Lobby Lounge, Bar, and Restaurant into a stunning space overlooking 6th Avenue and perfectly mirroring the hotel’s impeccable classic design. <br /><br><br><br />Adjoining the restaurant is the all-new Auden Bar featuring legendary New York barman Norman Bukofzer. As everyone who knows Norman will say, he perfectly exemplifies the meaning of Auden, which is “old friend.” Striking the perfect balance of warmth, conversation, and exceptional bar skills, Norman has been welcoming both old friends and new to his bar for decades.

"I arrived at almost 8 p.m. on a beautiful Indian summer Friday evening. Mine was one of only 3 occupied tables in the entire restaurant and I found out why. But this is the venerable Ritz Carlton Central Park South! I remembered and enjoyed BLT Market. Service was good, but how could it not be. The menu was clearly planned for room service. I should have walked out the minute I saw the nearly empty dinning room. I'm a Foodie - why I moved to New York almost 20 years ago. Breakfast or brunch must be different, but don't consider going for dinner!"

Located in a Land-Marked old "Speakeasy" right off of Washington Square Park in the heart of Greenwich Village. Blue Hill restaurant opened at the end of April 2000. Blue Hill is dedicated to creating a new category of neighborhood restaurant that maintains the classic attributes of warmth and affordability, while delivering superior food and service.
