Expert review of Gramercy Tavern

A gourmet mainstay with a great tasting menu.

Once the stomping ground of top chef Tom Colicchio, this pretty restaurant is now under the domain of Michael Anthony, a great cook who embodies a seasonal, local approach that’s still gourmet.

Food and drink: 

Delicious but subtly flavored some of the standouts here include lightly smoked lobster, wonderful soups and a great rack of lamb.

Ambience: 

A grown up atmosphere, which isn't too formal.

Service: 

The waiters really know their stuff.

Location: 

Near Gramercy Park on a quiet side street.

Price advice: 

Eating a la carte can prove expensive but there are some prix fixes and tasting menus that are good value like the five-course lunch for US$55 and nine-course seasonal tasting menu for US$112.

Tables to book: 

There is a formal dining room but for lunch I like to sit in the more casual front bar area.
