The Fourth and Singl Lounge, the two dining options at the Hyatt Union Square on Fourth Avenue and 13th Street, are currently closed ...brown paper has been up in the windows for the past 10-plus days...
There isn't any note about a temporary closure on the public-facing doors or windows... and the Hyatt Union Square website still lists both properties as the hotel's two dining options...
A hotel rep said that the two spaces were closed for renovations... and both would reopen later this month. (Guests apparently have a dining option in the lower level of the hotel.)
This was an expected move. Marco Moreira and Jo-Ann Makovitzky, the restaurateurs behind these two as well as a third Hyatt space, Botequim, parted ways with the hotel last May, as Eater reported. New operators were expected to take over The Fourth and Singl last summer. Apparently that's just happening now.
Back in 2014, there was some concern about the size of the sidewalk cafe at the Fourth, which was named for the right bank neighborhood in Paris. The matter eventually went to City Council, who OK'd a smaller, 12-seat cafe.
The hotel opened in April 2013.
