This gem of Union Square Hospitality Group from restaurateur Danny Meyer has been a NYC mainstay since opening in 1994. Led by chef Michael Anthony, the restaurant’s contemporary American cuisine highlights wood-fired cooking with seasonal ingredients from local farms and purveyors, and continues to be one of the most sought after reservations for both locals and visitors alike. Gramercy Tavern has two separate dining options within the space that includes a five-course tasting menu inside The Dining Room. For NYC Restaurant Week, choose from a la carte options inside the more casual Tavern.
Special offering: A two-course lunch at $39 per person for an appetizer and entree, or a three-course dinner at $59 per person for an appetizer, entree, and dessert. Menu selections are from the regular menu and include roasted oysters with habanero butter; chicory salad with candied pecans; or celery root soup with pears. Entrees include braised beef stew; The Tavern Burger with duck fat potato chips; or duck meatloaf with polenta. Desserts include sticky toffee pudding; pumpkin spice beignets; or chocolate pudding cake.
