At Gramercy Tavern, everything on the menu is in a class by itself. If you are eating in the main dining room, prepare your palette for a delectable three-course prix fixe meal with a range of options to choose from. While there are plenty of dishes our waitress was eager to recommend, she couldn’t help but rave about executive chef Michael Anthony’s impressive commitment to the use of local produce in determining the dishes he puts on the menu. More advice from our waitress — when ordering at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star New York restaurant, you can never go wrong with any of the fish or lamb options on the menu.
For appetizers on the three-course prix fixe menu, she recommended the smoked trout served with cippollini puree and pickled onions or the chilled asparagus soup served with turnips and lemon confit. For entrées, we recommend the rack and shoulder of lamb served with Hen of the Woods mushrooms, sunchokes, hazelnuts and collard greens, an inventive and filling choice with local ingredients. The smoked Arctic char is another dish to try, as is the halibut served with broccoli, beans, leeks and oysters. No matter how much you study the menu in advance of your visit, be forewarned—the daily specials at the New York restaurant are always worth a look.
