Excellent service, great cocktails and delicious food. The outside space is hopping, so if you want a little more of an intimate setting, opt for an inside table.

Forget only restaurant week; this awesome eatery has a fantastic prix fixe lunch special at only $29 weekdays. The food is always excellent, outstanding service and the prix fixe lunch is a value that can't be beat in NYC.

The staff is friendly and service efficient. Desserts look great and tasty. The burger was too oily.

Hello, Would you please tell me if the $29 prix-fixe lunch is from the regular menu or a special one? Also, should the server be told prior to ordering that the prix-fixe lunch is what is being ordered? Thank you Don

I remember the prix-fixe lunch was a separate menu but it had very good options and all was delicious. The server told us about this option and also mentioned that we can order from the regular menu as well.

David Burke Garden at The James New York is an unparalleled outdoor space with its own bar and seating for 130. The space, along with the hotel's urban garden, is landscaped with herb beds and flowers by horticulturalist Rebecca Cole and decorated with sculptures made of recycled materials that reflect the rustic, whimsical vibe. Guests can begin a meal at David Burke Garden with snacks and starters such as a tomato, ricotta and eggplant trifle, tuna tartar tacos with whipped avocado and tomato gazpacho with watermelon and rock shrimp. Sandwiches such as the soft-shell crab with salted mango puree, pickled vegetables and Old Bay mayo and the bacon cheddar Kitchen burger with jalapeno fries complement the open-air space, which also features a 14-seat chef's table and private cabanas. At the bar, sun-brewed iced tea is served in glass jugs, with flavors such as Meyer lemon, hibiscus and ginger-peach. David Burke Garden is open weekdays from noon to 10pm and from 11am-10pm on weekends.
