Restaurateur Danny Meyer seems to have an appetite for the West Side.

Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group will open a cafe, named Cedric’s, at the Shed in Hudson Yards, the Wall Street Journal reported. It will span 3,000 square feet and have 121 seats.

The news comes after previous reports that Meyer announced USHG would run the “anchor restaurant” at Brookfield Property Partners’ Manhattan West, which opens in 2020. The Shed, a $475 million independent nonprofit cultural center, is slated to open in April.

Meyer is joining a slate of other notable chefs coming to the neighborhood. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group’s Hudson Yards will have restaurants headed by Thomas Keller, David Chang and Michael Lomonaco, in addition to a Spanish-themed food hall and market from José Andrés. Nearby, Meyer has Porchlight, a cocktail bar at West 28th Street and 11th Avenue.

Meyer said he had considered opening a food hall, but the vision we would have had for the space would have been prohibitive” to develop financially and time-wise, the report said.

Cedric’s is named after Cedric Price, an architect who helped inspire the Shed’s design, which has a movable shell that can be rolled into the adjoining plaza. Architect David Rockwell, a frequent partner of Meyer, is overseeing the design of the cafe.

The cafe will be open all day, even when there are no performances at the venue, and the menu is still under development.
