Union Square is a hot place to spot your favorite chef. Weekly, you’ll spy a white chef’s jacket at the Union Square Greenmarket, only to confirm on Instagram later it was Chef Meir Adoni from Nur or Dominique Ansel among many others.

Get to know these masters of the culinary art at Harvest in the Square on September 14th: More than 50 local chefs will serve their signature dishes to fundraise for the Union Square Partnership’s work in the neighborhood.

Gadi Peleg of Breads Bakery and Nur is the 2017 Harvest in the Square Restaurant Chair.

Each year USP honors one neighborhood partner with the title of Restaurant Chair, and we’re thrilled to partner with Gadi Peleg for the 22nd Annual Event. Peleg opened Breads Bakery in 2013, where it has been a Union Square staple ever since. Earlier this summer we welcomed Nur, his collaboration with Israel’s Chef Meir Adoni, featuring middle eastern cuisine like you’ve never tasted before.

“Nur was opened in Union Square for many of the same reasons I selected the area when opening Breads Bakery,” said Peleg. “The neighborhood is the epicenter of the New York culinary scene, and the Greenmarket serves as the district’s heart and soul. We are thrilled to add Nur to the culinary landscape of this unique neighborhood and strive to be part of this exciting scene for years to come.” Meet both Peleg and Adoni at Harvest in the Square on September 14th.
