The consistent 40-minute wait at Untitled would be intolerable if your patience weren’t so mightily rewarded. In the sky-lit half-basement of the Whitney, Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group is pleasing museum-goers and neighbors with a menu of deeply delicious updates on coffee-shop grub. During the day, chef Chris Bradley (Gramercy Tavern) produces a tickertape parade of winners: Spongy buttermilk pancakes are so good they need no syrup; egg creams are perfectly blended, and a pimento cheeseburger is served to delicious effect on toasted pumpernickel. Of course, Untitled hews strictly to the local, organic, farm-to-table, religion—just about everything comes from nearby purveyors. Most are names you’ll recognize: Murray’s for cheeses, Garden State Urban Farms for greens; breads are cultish SCRATCHbread; pastries are by Bien Cuit.
