Following French charmer Tocqueville and glossy sushi temple 15 East, husband-wife team Jo-Ann Makovitzky and Marco Moreira go all-American with this Village brasserie. Off the lobby of the Hyatt Union Square, the bi-level space is divided into three sections: a café, pouring the couple's coffee brand, Café Quatrième; a bar kitted out with farmhouse benches and milking stools; and a red-hued dining room serving contemporary, seasonal fare. Fine-dining vet Michael Davis (Del Posto, Gilt) plates house-made paccherie with California uni and Montauk squid; Amish country chicken drizzled with chili-lemon vinaigrette; and roasted leg of lamb over shelling beans. Along with wide French doors that open for alfresco dining, the restaurant is outfitted with bubble chandeliers, graffiti art and a massive art installation—beds suspended by wood-carved chains hang from the 30-foot-high ceiling.
