Description: 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.

“A New York Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

If you want to remember a trip to NYC have a meal here. The experience lingers in your memory and makes the trip stand out. Tie it to going to a Broadway show the same night and you'll have a great evening

“We Loved It!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

With so many positive reviews it's hard to say anything new - but I'll say it again - this place is fantastic. We sat on the tavern side where it feels like you've been invited into someone's rustic farm house for a freshly prepared meal. Most of the ingredients are procured via local sourcing and there is no question that it is all high quality. We loved every bite of everything that we ordered. The hand crafted cocktails are also a delight. Late night dining made it a perfect post theater meal. And the price was very reasonable - dinner for two - appetizer, entree, dessert plus two drinks each - around $60 per person.
