The heart and soul of Danny Meyer’s culinary empire, Gramercy Tavern is an ALIX favorite. Meyer is known for setting the gold standard for hospitality and the diner’s experience is paramount. The space is divided into two parts: a formal dining room in the rear and the open Tavern in the front which includes an expansive bar and a series of small tables, each a perfect choice for lunch or dinner. The interior is warmed by dark wood and small copper lamps dotting the bar, which contrast with the colorful mural by artist Robert Kushner. The exquisite seasonal floral arrangements, impeccable service, and comforting food make you feel at home and invite you to linger in the warmth achieved by Gramercy Tavern. In keeping with a “tavern” experience, the dishes are hearty and rustic takes on American and European favorites, splendidly prepared with care that honors locally sourced meats, poultry and cheeses. Again, seasonality drives the menu, with spring presenting the lightness of a roasted asparagus salad and winter highlighting braised meats with potatoes. There are always plenty of options to choose from and you won’t want to miss this rich and wonderful dining experience.
