Subject: "Welcome Untitled & Studio Cafe"

Dear Colleagues,

Please join me in welcoming two new siblings to the USHG family: Untitled and Studio Cafe at the new Whitney Museum of American Art - which opens tomorrow for the world to see. Widespread anticipation and excitement for the Whitney’s opening cannot be understated, and the culinary world is incredibly eager to see what the Whitney and USHG have been cooking up for its new downtown home.

Bringing new restaurants to life takes deep levels of dedication, talent and passion, and I’ve been so inspired by how our colleagues have overcome all kinds of challenges to bring this amazing project to life. The teams at Untitled and Studio Cafe, along with their siblings at Gramercy Tavern and our entire USHG family, have all devoted their time, experience, and expertise to help make this opening truly unique for USHG.

Many of our Whitney colleagues grew into their new positions from roles in our other restaurants and all of our businesses (every single restaurant - as well as Union Square Events, HQ and the Home Office) have united so beautifully to support, teach, and train - and above all, to take care of one another, the first tenet of Enlightened Hospitality.  I want to thank each and every one of you for actively living USHG’s Family Values.

I’m incredibly proud of Mike, Suzanne, and the Untitled and Studio Cafe teams and am so excited to see (and taste!) Enlightened Hospitality come to life at the new Whitney.
