I love this place. Gorgeous curved ceiling, beautiful small dinning room. Glorious flower arrangements, superb service, and New York glamour and history. A careful chef. But make reservations way ahead of time. This is a time honored place.

Tip top service, food and ambience. Probably best if you can pay for it on an expense account if available! Particularly comprehensive wine list, some of which is pretty reasonable by New York standards. You need to book well ahead to get a table.

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.
