“The love of bacon is universal. I originally opened BarBacon to give bacon the proper respect and attention it deserves, and we’ve had a lot of fun elevating the ingredient and showcasing the different ways to eat bacon,” says Peter Sherman, Chef Owner of BarBacon. “We are extremely proud that our family is expanding with BarBacon Union Square, and hope with its central downtown Manhattan location, the restaurant will be a go-to destination for both locals and those visiting New York City.”  

BarBacon will be featured on Travel Channel’s Food Paradise for best places to eat bacon this year. 

If you're a fan of brunch (who isn't?) Bar Bacon serves up a hearty version on weekends. And during football season, try the NFL BarBacon Burger 'n' Beer combo for $21. In addition, happy hour specials are served up Monday-Friday, 4pm-8pm.
