Danny Meyer Cuts Wild Edibles Free

The foie gras protests outside Union Square Cafe may not have put a dent in anything, but we’ve just received a press release indicating that Union Square Hospitality Group will no longer use embattled Wild Edibles as its seafood provider, joining Keith McNally's and Jean Denoyer's restaurants in the snub. The release nods to the “courage” of ten workers who were let go after they filed a suit claiming they were stiffed on over time pay.

“Guests can rest assured that the Union Square Hospitality Group will not be serving seafood from labor rights violator Wild Edibles,” said Daniel Gross, the founding director of Brandworkers. “We look forward to discussing the workers efforts to achieve fairness on the job with the remaining Wild Edibles customers.”
