Inside the 75-seat dining room off the lobby of the Walker Hotel, Society Cafe serves market-to-table American fare. The menu changes regularly, as every dish centers around fresh ingredients from the nearby Union Square Greenmarket. On a recent visit, the cocktail list included options like the Kitten on the Keys with chartreuse, sparkling wine and thyme ($14) and the Boogie Woogie with bourbon, rosemary-infused Aperol, grapefruit and honey ($13). Start with appetizers like the Portuguese octopus with fingerling potatoes, Jersey artichokes and green goddess dressing ($18) or the Cherry Lane Farms tomato salad with gooseberries, stone fruit and pecorino ($17). For your main course, you might try the housemade coq au vin ravioli ($18), lamb loin with spiced cauliflower, mustard greens and apple crumbs ($36) or the Long Island duck with chamomile, radish, almond butter and cherry jus ($37). Society Cafe also serves breakfast and lunch daily and brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
