Union Square Bar Nuts Recipe brought to you by
Union Square is a restaurant in New York City, and was the first restaurant opened in 1985 by Danny Meyer, an acclaimed restaurateur. The restaurant serves American cuisine with a little old Italian soul. The restaurant has earned Zagat’s #1 New York Most Popular Restaurant for the past eight years. Many of their recipes have been added to their own cookbooks, and one recipe that has transformed the typical bar accessory, nuts. The Union Square bar nuts are unique, flavorful, and full of combinations that aren’t expected at the local pub. Maybe it should be.
I have made these for small parties and got a great response. They would work great for a holiday cocktail partyThey are simple to execute and even better to give to your guests. If you have any left over, you can enjoy them as a late night snack when there’s nothing else in the cabinets. Enjoy!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Toss the nuts in a large bowl to combine and spread them out on a baking sheet. Toast in the oven until light golden brown, about 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine the rosemary, cayenne, sugar, salt and melted butter.
Thoroughly toss the toasted nuts in the spiced butter and serve warm. And once you eat these, you will never want to stop.
