I recently had the pleasure of dining at the new and fabulous restaurant Union Prime designed by the legendary Carleton Varney of the innovative interior design house, Dorothy Draper & Company, Inc. Varney made brilliant use of many of the Dorothy Draper hallmarks, like this fabulous wall I am standing against – it is a Draper chintz pattern “Princess Grace Rose – black” enlarged to an outrageous scale creating quite a striking effect. Touted as a steakhouse for ladies who lunch, the menu includes foods that are directed towards those looking to stay slim and stylish. I feasted on a selection of raw oysters, a light fry of calamari and artichokes, fillet mignon, and creamed spinach, refreshing my palette all along with an absolutely perfect Martini and some very fine wine selected by Union Prime’s excellent sommelier, Doreen. Head down to Union Prime to enjoy a gorgeous lunch or dinner – perhaps I will see you there!
