Set in a former bank building complete with soaring ceilings and gleaming marble columns, Emporio Armani Café allows patrons to grab a quick latté or partake in a full lunch while contemplating the latest fashions and listening to after hours club music. Although EAC offers only counter seating, the attentive and polite servers put you at ease, while the fashionable dishes offer sustenance tailored to the needs of harried shoppers. The menu features a wide variety of selections ranging from Grilled Chicken Panini with Roasted Asparagus and Risotto with Porcinis to Chicken Caesar and White Bean Soup with Truffle Oil. With a full bar as well as an ample wine list including many selections by the glass, EAC offers a respite from the crowds of Union Square and the bustle of Market Street. Not priced like Armani attire, EAC offers value: great food and good service in a hip environment.
Pros: Location, Service
