Make a meaningful impact as a Barista at Caffe Marchio!
Founded by CEO Danny Meyer with the opening of Union Square Cafe in 1985, Union Square Hospitality Group has created some of New York’s most beloved restaurants, cafes, and bars such as Gramercy Tavern, Maialino, The Modern, Marta and Porchlight to name a few!
Caffe Marchio, located in the Redbury Hotel, honors the Roman tradition of delicious coffee in an energetic and convivial environment. Open from morning through early evening, Caffe Marchio serves up a proprietary roast designed to evoke the gutsy character of Roman espresso and to complement the array of breakfast sandwiches and traditional Italian pastries.
At midday, casual and hearty Roman inspired fare, including sandwiches, salads and soups will be available along with an afternoon selection of beer and wine. As in the neighborhood coffee bars of Rome, the airy interiors are lined with terrazzo countertops for stand-up, on-the-go refueling. Caffe Marchio is part of Union Square Hospitality Group and sister to Marta restaurant, also located in the Redbury Hotel.
