Eating and Shopping at Union Square

Gentle Friends... last Saturday we met up with some friends for lunch atop Macy's at "The Cheesecake Factory."   Not only to get together but to talk about their upcoming trip to Europe.  They have travelled extensively through Central and South America but have never been to Europe - and - they wanted to pick my brain for information.........

...... overlooking Union Square we had a table right up next to the edge.....  
we also had a dinning companion.....

... and here we all are playing tourist with the waiter taking our picture......  
and you know I'm going to take pictures of all the food.......

... I had their version of Shepard's Pie - very tasty!!

...... Rico had the Chinese chicken salad....

.... Mario had herb crusted salmon and shrimp scampi.....

.....  and Prisma had Spicy Cashew Chicken......  all the lunches were quite good!!!!

...... another shot of Union Square..... and if you look to the right at the yellow coloured building you can see Needlepoint Inc......

.... and here's another visitor....

... since we were at the Cheesecake Factory, we wrapped up the meal sharing a piece of Red Velvet Cheesecake......  and yes, it was as good as it looks!!!

.....  I took this shot to show you what a narrow space the outside part of the restaurant is, they had the heaters going (the tall mushroom looking things) as it was cold and windy even with the sun shining....

......  and another shot looking down..... we left and went down through Macy's and....

... still set up in fine china was a display for Cinco de Mayo....  we were headed for the fancy dress department, Prisma needed a long fancy gown for an event they are going to....


..... there were lots of dresses some very pretty and some that had to have been made for total hoochies!!  It was a fun day and such a great place to see the center of the shopping area - we only had to wait about 30 minutes for the table, the wait is much longer for dinner.

Sounds like you all had a great time! I love the Chinese Chicken Salad at the Cheesecake Factory! The plum dressing on it is so tasty. You need to have another Friday post with the photos of the pooches!

What a fun meal!!! I love outdoor dining! We only do it in Mississippi for a few months of the year because of the extreme heat--but it's fun when we can! All of the food looks yummy!!
Aren't your pigeon friends cute?

Hoochies?! Lol. I know what those are! Lunch looks really good. I like what Rico is having. And that cheesecake is divine!

I'm with Rico on this one also. That salad looks delicious. Did your friend choose the long white dress? It looks beautiful! Have a good weekend.

Yum, Mario's salmon and shrimp look delightful to me.

Is "hoochie" a Southern word? Of course I know what it means.

It looks like you had a nice day! Great to see pics of your lovely city! I'll miss visiting SF as my son has moved from Berkeley to Boston. So my visits will be on the east coast for a while.

The food looks DIVINE and since I've only logged 400 calories today...(I HATE DIETS!) I'd almost take a bite of my monitor!

Great post! Your lunches all look so scrumptious! At the end, when you said you only had to wait about 30 minutes, I was thinking you were going to say you only had to wait about 30 minutes for Prisma to find a dress, lol.

What a great picture of you all. It looks like it was a wonderful visit and a really tasty meal. I always wondered where NPI was!
