What's This?

The Royal brings an extra-ordinary dining and viewing experience to Manhattan’s Union Square with their contemporary approach to traditional sports bar elements, high-quality menu, and late night lounge.

Executive Consulting Chef Daniel Parilla created a menu with a modern take on traditional American dishes. They are perfect for sharing while watching a game! Chef Parilla is currently working as Sous Chef at Minetta Tavern, but also cooked at 5 Ninth and consulted for the successful Filipino food concept, Jeepney.

When asked about his love for cooking, Chef Parilla responded with, “I found my passion for cooking as a teenager working in rural Louisiana. My life became consumed with following my desire to cook rather than driven by salary or society. My will to become successful as an artist led me on the path of Culinary School.  I attended a Culinary School in Philadelphia where I fine tuned my skills of combining ethnic twists with basic American Fare.  Since then I began to hone in on my abilities as a chef at restaurants such as 5 Ninth and Minetta Tavern. I had been trained by the best at Bouley and Café Boulud. I bring my passion, drive, and years of experience to The Royal.  I have the ability to use the simplest of  ingredients to create sophisticated plates that please the palate.”

Chef Parilla told us that, “wings are the standard when it comes to what to eat on NFL Sunday. To me football is synonymous with Fall. The Grilled version of wings at The Royal offers a more sophisticated and healthier version of what everyone already wants.”
