Description: One of America’s most beloved restaurants, Gramercy Tavern has welcomed...
One of America’s most beloved restaurants, Gramercy Tavern has welcomed guests for close to two decades to enjoy seasonal American cuisine, warm hospitality and unparalleled service. The restaurant is perennially ranked at the top of Zagat Survey’s ‘Most Popular’ list, and has garnered eight James Beard Awards including ‘Outstanding Restaurant’ and ‘Best Chef: NYC’. Chef Michael Anthony’s highly seasonal menu consists of elegant dishes with a rustic influence that showcase the restaurant’s relationships with local farms and purveyors. The Main Dining Room serves prix-fixe menus starting at $92 for dinner and an a la carte menu for lunch, and accepts reservations 28 days in advance. The more casual Tavern serves an a la carte menu centered around the wood burning grill, and welcomes guests on a walk-in basis. The restaurant also features an acclaimed wine list, and thoughtfully selected beer and cocktail offerings.

Great energy. The food was reasonably priced in the Tavern, fresh and sauces were great! Our waitress was pleasant, well versed in the food and wines and made us feel special. I loved the decor and the beautiful people.

We went to the Tavern at about 5.30pm during the middle of the week for the Today Menu which is available after 5.30 on a "walk in" basis - we are glad we arrived early because it filled up quickly even mid week and there was a line up for a table at the bar - food and cocktails were... More

This is one of our favorite places to visit in New York City. We had the prefix meal and had the food paired with wines selected by the waiter. The pairings were very interesting,unique and complemented the meal perfectly. We would always recommend eating at Gramercy Tavern when in New York City!

My wife and I visited Gramercy Tavern on a Friday night during our honeymoon. Our reservation was for 8 PM. We were 10 minutes early, but our table was ready by 8. The food and service were both outstanding. I had the lobster salad, flounder, and cookie plate for dessert. My wife had the corn salad, lamb, and melon panna... More

Fantastic food at a great, understated venue. Have a drink at the bar and then a long lazy lunch. A great menu which somehow tastes better at the front of the restaurant rather than out back. Great atmosphere and very friendly, knowledgeable staff. Enjoy!

Had dinner here last night as it was our last night in NYC and I will say it was outstanding in all ways but the welcome. The food the drinks and service once we got to the table was outstanding and our waitress Dana was golden. We will be back.

This place was recommended to us by a very good friend of ours, who lived in New York for over 20 years, this became her favourite restaurant. A six course, slowly paced tasting menu, with time to talk, flirt and enjoy with your couple. Splendid food accompanied by a better PEAY Scallop Shelf 2012 Pinot Noir and great service. Come...

We went with friends in the front area. We loved it so much, we made reservations in the main room for the tasting menu. It was my wife's birthday and the service was perfect. The chicken dish my wife ordered was the best we have tried.

We had lunch and arrived as they opened. Within an hour, the restaurant and bar were full. The service was great, the food wonderful, and the pricey wines delicious and unusual, even for someone who drinks lots of wine. Save room for the strawberry pie.

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
