Danny Meyer Teams With David Rockwell for Whitney Café


Sure, Maialino has been compared to “a Le Pain Quotidien a la Pizzeria Uno à la Gramercy Tavern,” but it looks like Danny Meyer is still behind its designer David Rockwell — Union Square Hospitality group has just announced that he’ll be designing the café that will open this winter on the lower level of the Whitney. The breakfast and lunch spot (which will also serve dinner most weekends) has yet to get a name or concept, but a press release assures it will be “seasonal and committed to sourcing food from nearby farms.”
